A well attended group of Leopard Hound enthusiasts gathered at the Wayne County Coonhunters Club in Milton, Indiana for their 3rd Annual Leopard Hound Days. The event kicked off Thursday with a UKC licensed Regional Qualifying All-Leopard Hound Nite Hunt and Bench Show. An improved entry in all events created a great atmosphere throughout the weekend. "We're the smallest of the seven breed associations and appreciate all the support we received this year" said president Matt Grovesteen.
The association is looking to bring next years event back to Milton in 2013 and hope to see the trend of increased entries continue at this event. They are also working towards hosting a Youth only event in the very near future which has also been tentatively been set to be held at the Wayne County Coon Hunters Association later this year.

Congratulations to Dan Minten of Iowa and handler Travis Stirek on their win with Floyd River Blue Sport. Also to Curtis Elburn of Indiana who took top honors in the bench show with Gringo and Ragweed.
