In addition to teaming up with the Texas Dog Hunters Association and Hunters’ Harvest to sponsor the 2009 Hunt for the Hungry, the National Lacy Dog Association will have a booth at the Wild Boar Expo this weekend.

The Wild Boar Expo is 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Wilber Baber Complex, 499 County Road 200 in Hallettsville, TX. Weigh-in for the Hunt for the Hungry will be held at the Expo from 10 a.m. to noon on Sunday.

In addition to plenty of educational information about Lacys, the NLDA will be collecting pedigrees and inspecting dogs for CDHPR registration. If you have any questions about the CDHPR program, this is a great opportunity to talk to the officers in person. We’ll have coloring pages to keep the kiddos busy too. And Jimmy Brooks will have a trapping demonstration set up with trapping equipment for sale.

For anyone that is interested in hunting and the outdoors, there will be tons of vendors to check out, including hog dog gear, traps, blinds, feeders, ATVs, archery demos and a 3D tournament.

On Sunday afternoon, the NLDA will present the bonus check for the Heaviest Boar brought in for the Hunt for the Hungry. Last year this hunt raised over 20,000 pounds of pork for charity, so we’re very excited to support such a worthy cause. We hope to see you there!
