Every year the members of Clifty Creek Coonhunters (sponsor club of the HTDA), located at Dupont, IN host area landowners to a feast to show their appreciation. President Bobby Wilson (HTDA Board member) advised that nearly one hundred area landowners were served dinner to show appreciation for the ability to free cast their dogs on private land. Dinner included ham, potatoes, home grown Roma green beans and all the trimmings, with several desserts and coffee to follow it up. What feed. I had to sample a plate while I was there and it was delicious. Michael Goodpastor (Goody), club member and HTDA board member, stated that the opportunity to give back to the community was very gratifying and well received by the public. Goody went on to state that without landowner cooperation, their ability to function as a club and enjoy free casting hounds would be non existent.
The HTDA would like to recognize the efforts of the Clifty Creek Coonhunters and give them a big thumbs up. This type of community involvement is what the HTDA vision is founded on. The HTDA will use the examples set by one of our first sponsor clubs, in an attempt to recruit every club in the state of Indiana and to secure the future of tree dog sports for years to come.
