    Due to popular demand, we are hosting a second Classic Chukar Challenge for pointing dogs on Saturday, August 5, 2023 on Field #3 at Training Fields LLC.

    The cost to register will be $120 to cover for increased bird costs, property rental, insurance, drinks and snacks.

    Bring your own lunch if you want something more substantial to drink and eat.

    We will accept up to 16 entries, and no more than 3 dogs can be run by any one person.

    Our judge will be the experienced and fair Dan Branvold. Sue Davis has ordered and will embroider blanket prizes.

    We will meet for a safety briefing and other information at 9 AM. Plan to be there a little early so not to miss anything. Limited camping may be available for those traveling from afar. Be sure to bring water for you and your dog in case it is sunny and hot.

    The Chukar Challenge Classic is your chance to work your dog on some good flying chukar partridges and hone your shooting skills in a fun and competitive event.

    Participants will have 20 minutes for their dog to find 3 birds. Pointing dogs must point and flushing dogs must flush the birds. Handler and gunner will enter the field with a limited number of shotgun shells. Challenge points are awarded for number of birds found (up to 3), pointing or flushing ability, retrieves, birds in the bag, and number of shells remaining at the end of their run. Placements are given in both pointing and flushing classes. Participants can do their own shooting or bring a friend to gun for them. Club members will be available if you need a gunner.

    •  PLEASE PAY ONLINE using a card or PayPal. If you don't have a PayPal account, there's an option at the bottom of the payment screen to use a credit or debit card.
    •  Participants are highly encouraged to watch the AKC Gunner Safety video for pointing dogs.
