Beagle Field Trials

First AKC Licensed Federation Championship – DSBGF

The Deep South Beagle Gundog Federation held their Championship trial at Carter Creek Kennels in Pricedale, MS. The two enclosures this trial was run on covers 90+ acres full of rabbits! This was the first federation to have their championship licensed by the AKC and a huge crowd was in attendance. According to the President, Art Clay the entries were up 58 or 45% from last year’s championship. Most all the Beaglers were from the DSBGDF in six southern states.

The first day of the event kicked off early with the females, 42 starters in the 13" class and 53 in the 15" class. Gun Fire was by blank pistol and was done in the third series in both classes.

Saturday early morning several hounds were pre-measured. At closing there were 42 in the 13" and 50 in the 15"class. A short time later they were out to the field for the running with both classes finishing by 6:00 in the evening.

This was a great championship with several hundred folks in attendance enjoying all the good food, good sportsmanship and even better Beagling! Congratulations to the winners!
