This coming Thursday through Saturday, January 5-8, coon hunters from around the world will descend on Orangeburg, South Carolina for the 41st annual Grand American Hunt and Show. The event will take place at the Orange County Fairgrounds.

Saturday’s hunt has 350 entrants and is sold out.

In addition to the hunt, other highlights of the long weekend include bench shows, treeing competitions and Coonfest; an array of vendors will also be on hand for persons who would just like to get out and enjoy the atmosphere.

There will be many hunters present selling hunting dogs along with anything you may want or need for coon hunting – four-wheelers, deer stands, t-shirts, hunting supplies, artwork and jewelry. About 30,000 people are expected to attend.
