Storms Wreak Havoc in Belle Meade Hunting Country

As the result of recent storms through Georgia, fifty percent of all the trails in the Belle Meade hunting country are blocked, according to Epp Wilson, MFH. Hounds and coyote are able to get through, but not horses.

“There are more large trees down across our trails than I have seen in forty-five years of hunting this territory,” said Wilson. “The country is virtually unhuntable.”

The Belle Meade Masters have called out their membership and friends to come and help. They need tractors with mowers and front-end-loaders and people to operate chain saws and four-wheelers.

The Saturdays of August 13 and August 20 have been designated as official workdays.
