Sanctioned UKC Bench Show

Open Bench Show and Treeing Contest

One of the goals is to encourage the county youth in a variety of activities that they can become involved in at home with Coon Hunting being one of them chosen by the Fair Committee to support.  Coon Hunting has been a traditional sport in the mountains of Virginia from the time the first settlers started occupying the rich farmlands and setting down roots.  One does not have to go far in the county until you’ll see tree dogs in yards and dog boxes on the backs of trucks.  Young boys and girls can be found throughout the county on any given night during hunting season following a dog through the woods.
