Several area coon hunters met Tuesday night at Little Dixie Fire Protection District State No. 3 to form a new association to be known as Long Branch Coon Hunters Association.
Interest was expressed to conduct local club hunts, buddy hunts, UKC licenses events including bench shows, night hunts and a new category, hunt test champion.
The association desires to appeal to the entire family with an emphasis on youth. Youth events will be conducted throughout the year.
