Ochlocknee, Ga. — The 2019 running of the Dixie Open All-Age was contested on the grounds of Burnt Branch Plantation in Ochlocknee, Ga.

Owners Eddie and Carol Scholar were gracious enough, once again, to host this event.

Greg Shepherd and all his staff had the venue in topnotch shape, as always.

Greg and Judd Carlton handled the marshalling duties, as well as the day-to-day responsibilities of the trial.

Jason Loper and Reid Hankley, both of Thomasville, Ga., handled the judging duties.

Thankfully these two qualified men were able to step in and fill the judges’ saddles, left vacant due to work related obligations of the advertised judges.


Touch’s Malcolm Story, a handsome white and orange first year pointer, handled by Mark McLean and owned by Alex Rickert of Bozeman, Mont., took first place honors in the Open All-Age.

He was followed by former National Champion Miller’s Dialing In (2015), owned by Sean and Deb Hauser of Manchester, Ia., and handled by Luke Eisenhart. Third place went to Touch’s Blue Moon, five-year-old white and orange pointer male owned by Tony Gibson and Reuben Richardson and handled by Cody McLean.

The companion Derby was judged by Reid Hankley and Judd Carlton.

First place went to Summerlin’s Harvest Time, white and orange pointer male owned by Cole and Katie Summerlin of Moultrie, Ga., and Howard Brooks of Dayton, Tenn., handled by Mark McLean. Second was awarded to Touch’s Blue Knight, pointer male owned and  handled by Woody Watson of Leesburg, Ga. Third place was Cody McLean with E F’s Lone Star, owned by Frank Foley.

Thank you to everybody who participated and contributed to this year’s Dixie Field Trial Club’s trial.
