    Marty youll have your hands full on this one! Coons are very difficult to judge at the top end, as once theyre good mounts and accurate, they all tend to look similar. Itll take a really exceptional pose and animal to be clearly above the rest. Good thing its not you judging, and instead, everyone. Thats a tough one. Have a blast and good luck everyone!

    I agree 100% Bill, glad I am not the judge. The court of public opinion will be intersting when the voting happens. In the mean time, I am going to have to get some tutoring on an easier way to post pictures than what I use now......

    The Illinois Association had a sort of coon challenge at our convention. A girl- I believe 14 years old- spanked the competition with her professional entry. BTW- she scored a blue for judging too. An amazing up-and-coming talent and incredibly humble. She carcass casted it. I think there is a pic on the ITA site for special awards.
    Not sure I can be dry in time- but I have one I've been working on. See if I can git 'er done.
