I was down for a half a day taking a few pictures of the Gyp Hills Field Trial out on the Z bar ranch owned by Ted Turner. It is located in the southwest corner of Barber County Kansas and covers around 42,000 acres. I alway love to have a reason to get down where I spent to first 18 years of my life at and this area was an inspiration to me to take up nature photography several years later.
The trial started out on a beautiful morning with zero wind. It is not often you get calm winds in this part of the state but by 10 am the breeze started to pick up a little. I followed in my vehicle behind the dog wagon and with the tall cover as you can see I didn't get any dog shots while out in the field hunting.
After the winners photo I've included a few photos I've taken over the years on the Z bar ranch and the Merrill ranch just to the west of the Z bar. More field trial images on the Z bar
