Holly Springs, Miss. — The 2018 Mississippi Open Shooting Dog Championship began on Wednesday, January 10th and concluded on January 11, 2018 at the Hendrix Farm at Laws Hill, Mississippi. There were 26 entries running in 13 braces over the two days.
Judges Jack Harang of Moscow, Tenn., and Mike Hester of Mebane, N. C., named R J’s Deicer, six-year-old white and liver pointer female owned by Reagan and Kristen Moisson of Milton, Wis., and handled by Shawn Kinkelaar, the champion. She ran in the eighth brace, paired with Among Giants, pointer male.
American Pharoah, coming four-year-old white and liver pointer male owned by Harold Johnson of Shorter, Ala., and handled by Jason Williams, earned the runner-up title. He ran in the seventh brace, paired with Snow Drift, pointer male.
“The Hendrix Family and friends have done a terrific job in managing this property and bringing along a great pre-release program. At the Mississippi Open Shooting Dog Championship, we moved 18 coveys the first day of the trial. [On the] second day the birds were hunkered down in the rain and we put up seven coveys. You’ll enjoy running there,” wrote reporter Ken Blackman.
