Damion Basham, 13, of Hawesville, Ky., watches as his father, The Rev. William “Gerald” Basham, shows off “Kentucky Bad Luck Buddy,” a black and tan hound. Judge Jeff White, far left, looks on as owners and handlers bench their dogs for the judging. Basham showed two dogs last week during the three-day Redbone Days event at the Perry County Coon Club, an event that drew over 300 people and 400 dogs from all over the United States. While “Buddy” didn’t win this weekend, he did take Class Breed and Best of Show at the recent ICHA Youth event a few weeks ago, also hosted at the Perry County Coon Club.
Tracking the Scent

Over 400 dogs competed in the 56th Annual UKC Licensed  American Redbone Days, hosted by the Perry County Coon Club, filling the grounds and surrounding woods with their deep, resonating baying.

The three-day event brought in people from dozens of states, to show their dogs, run field trials and swap stories.
