The Lowcountry Hunt, founded in the Spring of 2006, completed its 2011 fixture card with its annual closing meet at Airy Hall on a beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon. With the mission of conservation central to the activities of the Lowcountry Hunt, this group of fox hunters moves with ease between some of the oldest and grandest plantations in the Lowcountry. The big excitement of the meet came when a coyote was flushed in the woods by the hounds, which then pushed it towards Bennet's Point Road and Ashepoo plantation. The Whippers-In performed their job admirably as they turned the hounds back into the drive while avoiding the traffic associated with the St. Patrick's Day celebration being conducted at Bennett's Point.
