Sheba 11 at the Ms. State Youth Championship
Jeremy came by yesterday and we loaded up Sheba and headed to the 2019 Ms. State Youth Championship in Meadville, Ms. Where we were to Meet Mr. Ray Necaise and His son Braiden and his Step son Payton Smith. Payton was the one that would be Hunting Sheba in the hunt. We spent an enjoyable evening watching all the kids win all kind of great prizes in different events. As 6clock rolled around all the kids were dressed to hunt along with their dads and friends and ready to go. After the draw out we learned that we had a three dog cast, and Payton had drew out against a young lady hunting a Walker dog and Tanner Gerald, Mike Gerald,s son hunting a Bluetick female. I would like to thank Mr. Wesley Ratliff for being our guide and Mr. Jeremy Purvis for Judging. Mr. Wesley put these kids in the coons. I was amazed at how well these kids called these dogs. We were in the 12 year old and under group. When we got down to about 16 minutes left in the hunt. The dogs made a tree and as they were getting them off the tree it was discovered that Sheba had cut her left back leg open just above the foot probably on a broken bottle or can somewhere in the swamp. All the dogs were close in points. I think between 400 and 500 points. Sheba was bleeding pretty bad. I talked it over with Payton and he told me he sure didn't want to see Sheba hurt, so we decided to withdraw her. I think when th hunt was over the little lady with the walker dog won the cast and overall high scoring dog with 450+ points.
In another cast Braiden, Ray's other son was hunting his dog Shadows Blue Smoke and he was also doing quite well. He won his cast and third place overall and I think this win finished Smoke to Nite Champion. I would like to thank everyone envolved with the Ms. State Youth. They are doing a great Job.
