Wally's Photography | Central AR Beagle Club Field Trials Jan 31, 2009
I photographed this event because of my lifelong love of the breed. My dad owned beagles when I was a kid, and I have owned them all my life (even though I no longer hunt). I still have two beagles of my own now.

This event was photographed at the Camp Robinson Wildlife Management Area and it was a gorgeous day for all those involved.

I must say that of all the events and sports I have photographed, the Beagle Field Trials were one of the most challenging I have ever shot. Keeping up with the judges (who ran the pack all over the hillsides) and the packs of beagles was almost impossible. So I hope I was able to capture the dogs doing what beagles do best...track rabbits. Watching the pack track the rabbit and listening to them cannot be captured by a still camera (maybe not even by a video camera).

So enjoy...and hopefully I have done the sport of "Beagling" some justice.
