“Back in I believe 81′,
we were at a white trial
and at that trial we couldn’t run with them. So we came up with idea
of getting this trial started for ourselves.” - Neal Carter
Since the early 19th and 20th centuries, there has been a long line of African-American field trailers and bird dog trainers who have quietly passed down their oral legacy to their sons, grandsons, nephews, and novices keeping true to the tradition of Southern, plantation-style hunting and trialing in pursuit of wild bobwhite quail.

Get The Art
A Project Upland Film
Presented by Eukanuba Sporting Dog, Aya Fine Guns, and Dakota 283 Kennels
The Host of The Gun Dog Notebook brings us on his personal journey into the culture and dog life of the Red Hills. "I have spent about 20 years studying fine art and art history; I am really drawn to tracing modes of expression as humanity and groups of people evolve. It’s about developing a comprehensive documentation of human evolution through expression.
As such, music and the arts are weighted with an incredibly powerful presence in every culture, especially that of the Red Hills region—specifically Thomasville, Georgia. The music, song, and dance came from Atlanta, but the spirit came from way deep in the piney woods. And it is deep in those woods that I join the early morning choir. It’s often men’s day in the woods, and “The Deacon,” Bob White, is singing his solo to the daybreak hymn."
