I tried to put a competition on last year and just didn't get enough interested people. Just wondering what it would take to get you guys out and compete with your dogs?
Paybacks for.placements? New shotgun ?
What I find interesting is that the area surrounding DFW has literally thousands of guys with good dogs. Yet they are not interested or I'm not reaching them?
There is a little town in Kansas that puts on 2 events a year and they get 60+ entries every time.
What would it take? Help me out....

Basic rules are pretty easy. You and your dog get 15 minutes to find and bag 3 birds. Fastest time / most points wins. Field is aprox 12 ac sq.

Pointing and flushing does not go together. They already have NSTRA up there.

This would not be affiliated with any group in particular except maybe for Upland Classic.

Bodies Dad tried to get up something like ths a couple of years ago. Never heard from him after it was over. NSTRA has all you need for pointing dogs. I no longer go because we have no trials in my area, plus I like hunting more.
