Gulf Coast Event Draws Top Trainers and Shooting Dogs

The muffled sound of thundering hooves coming from a large stand of plantation pines makes one think they are about to witness the 1st Calvary burst out of the woods into an open field. It isn’t the 1st Calvary, but mounted participants in the 2009 Gulf Coast Open Shooting Dog Field Trials being held at Conecuh Station near Blue’s Old Stand in Bullock County.

This event had been held for many years on Blackwater Forest near Munson, Florida, until a storm came through and destroyed the facility where the field trials were held.
