Welcome to the 2016-17 Hunters Trial Season


- A Tradition to Honor and Preserve -
Imagine yourself out with a friend on a day's hunt with your dog. A more desirable dog might be one that requires little or no commands, stays in range, and puts birds in the game bag. A less desirable dog might not obey, runs off, and hunts on its own, or lose (not retrieve) dropped birds. Remember this is a hunter's trial. Most hunters make one pass through an area, and would not consider recovering the same area. A bird missed on the first pass should should score considerably less if found on the second or third pass. You would be courteous to other hunters. You and your friend would of course, handle guns with respect, and in a safe manner.


Memorial / Honor Trials will have “Dogs of the Day” awarded, as well as the “Senior Dog” class for dogs 9 years and older (with same judging guidelines as Gun Dog class), and will include up to 4 placements.
The Senior Class will be run at the Winners Trial this season.

Classes: Puppy = Less than or equal to 15 months of age, Derby = 15 months and 1 day to 30  months of age,  Gun Dog(formerly known as Open Class) = 30 months and 1 day or older,  All Age,   Senior = 9 years+
