Treeing Walkers tracking their way back to Salisbury

United Kennel Club invites all coonhound enthusiasts to the Rowan County Fairgrounds in Salisbury this weekend, Feb. 21 and 22, to experience friendly competition as owner/handler/hound teams vie for top honors during the 41st Annual Southeastern Treeing Walker (SETWA) Days.
SETWA Days is a pre-entry only event offering two Bench Shows and two Nite Hunt competitions held Friday and Saturday, showcasing top hounds from across the country. Thursday night is the Ninth Annual Allen Shoe Memorial Hunt, exclusively for Treeing Walker Coonhounds. Spectators are encouraged to attend, and activities stretch well into the night as handlers and hounds return from hunting. In accordance with UKC Rules and Regulations, no game is taken and no firearms are allowed.
Nationally recognized vendors will offer dog and pet products. Coonhound owners and breeders are also available to discuss the breeds’ temperaments, abilities, training, ownership and handling. Spectators are welcome to meet and greet the coonhound/owner teams; however, they are asked to leave their own pets at home.
“The Annual Southeastern Treeing Walker Days consistently claims the status of being one of the top five major coonhound events in the country,” UKC Senior Director of Hunting Events Allen Gingerich said.
“When you consider the history, the time of year, the geographical location, the area’s good hunting grounds combined with the prestige of placing in this major event, it’s a must-go for the coonhound fancier. SETWA Days never fails to bring out the who’s who of hounds, owners and handlers. I always look forward to this event each year and never fail to come home with a rejuvenated appreciation for our loyal UKC supporters in the Southeast.” Gingerich added.
