Beagle hunt draws people from across the U.S.

| August 26, 2013

WEST LAFAYETTE – Mike Holt took a break with some of the beagles he and Randy Miller brought to the Don McVay Sr. Memorial Beagle Hunt. The hunt was held Aug. 23- 25, at Schumaker Farms and more than 200 dogs from across the United States participated in the event. Holt is from Indiana and was enjoying his first time at the hunt.

“It’s a lot more relaxed than some hunts,” he said. “So far the guides and judges also have been super.”

The event is sanctioned by the PKC and Lance Spivey, the PKC U.S. director, was there representing the organization.

“I enjoy the family atmosphere of this hunt and the wide variety of dogs you see,” he said. “They also have great raffle prizes. I think this year they totaled around $31,000.”

The raffle prizes also are a big draw for John Hill and Ron Wyatt of West Virginia.

“I’ve been here every year,” Hill said. “I come for the raffle, the fellowship and to eat.”

Schumaker’s served food at the event and vendors, such as Purina also were on hand.

The Don McVay Sr. Memorial Beagle Hunt is sponsored by the Coshocton County Beagle Club and several others.
