Since 1976, the Decatur County World’s Largest Coon Hunt – Benefit for St. Jude has been held annually on the second full weekend of April, Thursday through Sunday. To this day, it is still worked solely by volunteers. It takes each and every person who walks on the grounds to make this great event possible.

Over 2.3 million dollars has been donated to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital from this event in twenty-five years, with sixteen of those years being record breakers. Little did those first volunteers realize what a great task they had started! From 1976 to present, faces may have changed from time to time. However, all hearts remain the same and the motto is as it was twenty five years ago: “That every child at St. Jude Children Research Hospital be given the chance we all take for granted every day – The Chance For Life.”
