The 2009 AKC Southern Heritage Hunt moved to the River Bend Hunting Lodge in Myrtlewood, Ala., a move that proved to be popular with the hunters who placed 81 entries in the event.
The Tri-County Coon Hunters served as the host club and together with assistance from the AKC and Ultra Advantage Dog Food, put up $6000.00 in added money for the 2009 event. When it was all said and done, a local dog with two plus-point cast wins emerged the 2009 AKC American Heritage Hunt Champion. The prestigious coonhound event paid a total of $8,685.00 in cash awards.
Seven Mile Swamp, owned and handled by Mitchell Hall, who along with his father operate the River Bend Hunting Lodge, was crowned 2009 American Heritage Champion on Saturday night after logging two productive cast wins to lead the field. Tom Maytonís Dot female was crowed Opposite Sex Champion.
Congratulations to Mitchell Hall and to Tom Mayton. In addition to the added money, Hall won the Tri-tronics 2-dog G2 Ultra dog training system from Tri-tronics, Inc.
