Gulfcoast Homing Club is a local pigeon racing club here in Hernando County.

“We have the largest club in the world,” said Vernon Young, president of the Gulfcoast Homing Club.

Civilizations have utilized homing pigeons for sport, communication and in times of war for centuries. Pigeons can be extremely valuable, some having sold for hundreds of thousand of dollars.
