LACEY’S SPRING — The Tennessee River Coon Hunters Association and the United Kennel Club will sponsor a coon hound field trial here Friday and Saturday.
Herb Fields said the Friday night hunt deadline is 7:30 a.m. The Saturday bench show deadline is 5:30 a.m. with the hunt deadline for that night at 7:30 a.m. Entry fee for the hunts is $20 each. Entry fee for the bench show is $10.
