Redneck Coonhounds



Redneck Coonhounds is owned by Art Harvey Jr. and family of West Newton, PA. Art and his family (wife Sue and 2 daughters Allie, and Sarah) live in the West Newton, PA area. Art "Dutch" Harvey is a member of the National Redbone Coonhound Assoc. and the American Redbone Coonhound Association, Laurel Highlands Coonhunters Association, and the PA Nite Hunters. Lifetime member of the National Rifle Association. Our kennel is strictly redbones and we have several good quality females and males at the house. We hunt the major redbone breed events every year and can be found at most local events. Over the years we have tried most of the other breeds as family and friends have had all of them, but we have decided to hunt/show Redbones exclusively. Unlike others we choose to hunt one breed and try to further the breed with our own contributions.

2010 was a great year for our hounds and hunting in UKC competitions for the family. Hot Spot finished to Grand Nite Ch. and won High Scoring Opposite Sex (Male) at 2010 National Redbone Days in Holmesville, OH. This was a goal of mine and it was a great feeling to get this accomplished. Hot Spot also won the 2 nd Place Nite Champion at the 2010 Southern National Redbone Championship in Cedar Grove, NC on Friday Night, PA Nite Hunters Mini Slam, the UKC Regional Qualifier held at Blairsville, PA, and several Grand Nite casts including the BBOA PA Spring Hunt in Meyersdale, PA, and a Grand Nite Cast at the Little Mountain Music Hunt in Blairsville, PA. Allie handled Hot Spot to wins at the Youth Hunt at National Redbone Days, she won the BBOA National Youth Hunt with Hot Spot, and she took 3rd Place at the PA State Youth Hunt in 2010 with Hot Spot. We have great luck with our hounds in 2009 and 2010 and finished many into Nite Champions (6 in past 2 years) and Spot into a Grand Nite Champion in 2010. Goals for 2011 include finishing Jet into a Grand Nite and running several of our young dogs into Nite Champions this year. We have several nice young dogs out of Spot, Gretchen, Rock and a nice young female out of the Dual Grand Red Ice.

References can be provided on all my hounds with any hunter at the local clubs here in W. Pa. and by several well known Redbone hunters. Well known Redbone hunters like Mr. Fred Moran of Sutersville, PA and Scott Perkey of Ruffsdale, PA have both hunted with my dogs on numerous occasions as I have with theirs. If you need something in the Redbone breed give me a call or e-mail and I will try and help you out.

• Junior handlers are Allie Harvey, who also writes a monthly news column in Coonhound Bloodline magazine and is 2009 UKC Horizon Award Nominee as well as a 2009 National Redbone Association Horizon Award Winner, and Sarah Harvey who is just starting to get the bug to hunt and show "her" dogs.

Spot won the Pa Nite Hunters Mini Slam with 537.5+ with only one other cast scoring on coon and in 12+ inches of snow which impressed alot of people. Spot also won second place Nite Ch. at 2010 Southern Redbone Days in February with 425+. These were not feeder bucket coon but wild coons.
