For you guys that think your ol Blockhead is a pretty good Gundog, well have I got something for you!
The Prarie's End Hunt Club is hosting a Gundog competition. This will be one of the first events of this kind in North Texas.
Here is the way the game is played ....
you will get a field of about 75 X 300 Yards
3 birds will be pre planted.
you and your dog will have 20 minutes and 6 shotgun shells, to bag all 3 birds

This event is open to Pointing and flushing dogs. There will be amateur and open and Novice classes.

I can tell you these events are an absolute BLAST





If you have questions feel free to contact me here on the forum

Just to clarify a bit..
There is a pointing division and a flushing division. You can run as a amateur or a open entry
You can run as an amateur if your dog is less than 3 yrs, and you have not run as an open entry this year.
so if your dog is 3+ you must run in open class. If you have run NUCS as an open entry this year you must run open.
We are planning to run the event on Chukar, however, this may change due to availability of birds.
If you are not sure of what you want to do you can run as a novice. You can only run 1X and the run is not officially scored.

These type of events are a GREAT TIME!! We ran them on the east coast when we lived there. We always did well with a black little whippet of a labrador out of Cosmo. The later in the draw you ran, the better chance you had of having more birds in the field.

What makes this event so much fun is that it is a team effort between you and your dog.
The dog does not have to do anything in particular except find and retrieve birds. Then you have to do your part by hitting the birds.
These events aren't as stuffy as the AKC events. This is just like hunting except you are under the clock.

So there's no winner in novice? Just trying to decide if I want to do amateur or novice.

Correct no novice winner.
It is designed to give someone who is a bit unsure about their dog or themselves a chance to have fun without pressure.
Everything about it is the same as the amateur or open just no official score.
you can run either and still have fun.

The "scrambles" we had run had huge cash pots for 1-3rd place. They were very competitive.

Don't you have to enter before the trial and draw for braces?

Bill
this event is only going to be singles
Only one dog at a time on any field. We will, however, have multiple fields to keep things moving along.

it's a points system
Everything that happens on the field either gives or takes points.
Time is the big determining factor, BUT you must bag the 3 birds.
The time left over from your 20 minutes gives you extra points
Birds bagged gives you points
retrieves to hand gives you points
shotgun shells used costs points but leftover shells gives points.
So you MUST be quick your dog needs to retrieve to hand and you must be accurate.
