AKC MAJOR CHAMPIONSHIPS

YOUTH, HERITAGE, & LADIES WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS

We can’t say enough about the great folks in Peru, Indiana and our host club, Western Howard County Conservation Club of Indiana. The hospitality and beautiful grounds for this event are outstanding. We hope you will join us for a family filled weekend of plain good fun and great sportsmanship of young and old. If there is ever a place to “take a kid hunting” this is the place! …and bring the rest of the family to enjoy no pressure hunting.
