From novice to expert, Nite Life Nation encompasses the whole spectrum of living the coonhound lifestyle.
Getting to Know Trevor Wade, the Coonhound Program Manager for UKC.
In this episode we welcome Trevor Wade to the back of the old country store. Trevor tells us about his journey from East Tennessee to Southwest Michigan and what it's like running the coonhound program for the United Kennel Club. You're going to enjoy getting to know this soft spoken family man whose enthusiastic passion for our sport is only surpassed by his dedication to preserving our legacy while putting a fresh face on old stereotypes. UKC is moving forward and we think they've got a good man leading the charge. Take a listen and see for yourself in the 47th episode of the NLNP.
