Nestle Purina PetCare, in conjunction with the United Kennel Club, established the Purina Award for the Outstanding UKC Nite Hunt Coonhound of the Year.

Purina recognizes the immense interest in the sport of Coonhound Nite Hunt competition and the tremendous amount of time spent by competitors in working with and training their dogs. The Purina Outstanding UKC Nite Hunt Award was established to honor the country’s outstanding coonhound and give recognition to the owner and handler.

Award Committee

Purina provides awards and hosts the Award Ceremony for the Purina Outstanding Coonhound program. The program is administered, judged and scored by the Purina Award Committee which is made up of seven prominent and experienced individuals representing each of the seven UKC recognized coonhound breeds as follows:

  • American Black & Tan Coonhound: Tim Whitaker, Paragon, Indiana
  • American Leopard Hound: Curtis Elburn, Peru, Indiana
  • Blue tick Coonhound: David Gardin, Norwood, North Carolina
  • English Coonhound: Darrell Brown, Walnut Cove, North Carolina
  • Plott Hound: Wayne Allen, Cartersville, Georgia
  • Redbone Coonhound: Harry Oumedian, Howell, Michigan
  • Treeing Walker Coonhound: Gary Starns, Ada, Oklahoma

The Purina Outstanding Coonhound Award Committee has the final decision in all matters pertaining to the program’s operation. The Committee reserves the right to, during the calendar year, make any changes deemed necessary to any part of Purina Series rules, schedule or otherwise. Any such changes are announced on the UKC website, www.ukcdogs.com. The Committee reserves the right to audit and approve the final tabulated scores, and releases the announcement of the winning coonhound. Whenever possible, Purina Outstanding Coonhound Award Committee members participate at the official presentation of awards.

The Purina outstanding UKC Nite Hunt Award is based on a dog’s performance in carefully chosen United Kennel Club Licensed Nite Hunts.

A $15,000 cash purse will be split among the registered owner(s) of the top five point-earning hounds and any breed winners (the hound earning the most Purina Points in its breed) not included in the top five points earners.

A dollar value for each point Purina Point earned will be calculated based on the combined year-end score for each placing hound. The monetary award paid will be based on the total points earned by each respective hound. The more points you earn, the more you will win.

ADDITIONALLY, a $10,000 cash purse will be divided among those placing hounds owned by active Pro Club members.
Using the same procedure for establishing a point value, this bonus money will be divided among the owners who meet the following eligibility requirement: The owner on record as of January 1, 2017 (in case of dual ownership, the first owner whose name appears on the UKC registration certificate) must be an active Purina Pro Club member. An active Pro Club member is an owner who has submitted a minimum of 875 pounds of weight circles within the past 12 months. A dog transferring ownership after January 1, 2017 from an inactive Pro Club member to a new owner who is an active Pro Club member is not eligible.
THE PURINA OUTSTANDING UKC NITE HUNT COONHOUND AWARD WINNER will receive an original oil portrait of the winning hound. An official presentation of awards will be made to those winners in attendance at Purina National Championship.
Note: Recipients of awards are solely responsible for any and all federal, state and local taxes.

Nestle Purina PetCare is honored to have a part in this prestigious program and to lend its name to this award. Participation in the program and announcement of the winner should in no way be construed as an endorsement or testimonial for Purina Dog Foods. Purina simply makes it possible for outstanding coonhounds to receive recognition they so richly deserved. May the best dog win!

PURINA SERIES CONTENDERS

Any dog with a total of 250 Purina Points will be considered a Purina Series Contender. Dog(s) having earned Contender status will be drawn out in a Purina Series Contender Cast with other Contenders. All Purina Cast Contenders will be drawn out together regardless of their designated category. All Purina Series Contender Casts must have one qualified non-hunting judge assigned to the cast(s).

Important Information Regarding the Draw of Contender Casts

All Contenders must advise event officials of their status at time of entry. Entry takers will have a form available for contenders to sign in as such when they enter their dog. All Purina Series Contenders, regardless of category (REG, NITECH, GRNITECH), entered in a Purina Points Event shall be drawn out together in a Purina Series Contender Cast. NOTE: In the event there are less than three Purina Series Contenders entered in the event, the Contender(s) entered will be drawn out within its respective category and shall have a non-hunting judge assigned to the cast. If there are two Purina Series Contenders of the same category entered in the event, those two contenders shall be drawn out together on the same cast and have two more non-contenders drawn to that cast. A non-hunting judge shall be assigned to any cast that includes a Purina Contender. Any deviation from these draw-out rules will result in no Purina points awarded to the cast winner.

In the event five Purina Contenders are entered in the same event, they will be drawn out in one (1) three-dog Purina Series Contender Cast and one (1) two-dog Purina Series Contender Cast. If any Contender is not available when casts are called, that dog will be scratched and remaining Contenders will be drawn to as few casts as possible per the Contender draw-out rules as noted above. Action will be taken against individuals involved in activities deemed unethical or detrimental towards the goal of fair play, to include, but not limited to entering and then withdrawing that dog prior to the hunt.

Championship Rules apply to all Purina Series Contender Casts. A cast winning score in a Purina Series Contender Cast will be considered for placement in the event within the winning dog’s current category. EXAMPLE: A Registered dog winning a Purina Series Contender Cast is eligible for placing in the Registered portion of the event; a Nite Champion dog winning a Purina Series Contender Cast is eligible for placing in the Nite Champion portion of the event; and a Grand Nite Champion dog winning a Purina Series Contender Cast is eligible for placing in the Grand Nite Champion portion of the event.

Note: There will not be any Purina Series Contender Casts assembled at UKC Winter Classic, Autumn Oaks, or any part of the UKC World Championship. Any Contenders entered will draw out within their category or as in accordance to the running rules specific to the event. They will not be required to have non-hunting judges assigned to their cast.

No person with any involvement with a Purina Series Contender (owner, handler, breeder, etc.) shall participate in the draw at any Purina Points Event. The Purina Committee has the right to review any and all complaints or UKC Appeals brought from or about any owner or handler of a Purina Contender and act accordingly. The Purina Committee has the authority to revoke Purina Points from any dog. The Purina Committee has the authority to indicate any dog, owner, or handler as ineligible to earn Purina Points.

Note: Purina Points may be withheld if it is determined that a cast win is the result of another hound withdrawing from the cast.
