Like so many foxhunters, Master Hal Barry of Bear Creek Hounds (GA) has delighted in introducing people to the sport that inspired his passion to follow the hounds. Over the years, he and his wife Linda have opened their home and farm to visitors from around the country and around the world to share the thrills of foxhunting.
For the 2012 opening hunt, the Barrys and the other masters of Bear Creek Hounds reached out to the nearby community of Moreland to plan a two-day festival called “Full Cry in Moreland: A Celebration of the Hunt.” The festival was held in partnership with the Moreland Cultural Arts Alliance and the Order of the Tartan of the Chattahoochee Valley. The arts alliance oversees the operations of two museums celebrating Georgia authors and Moreland sons Erskine Caldwell and Lewis Grizzard, and the Order of the Tartan is devoted to keeping Scottish traditions alive.
