Central Prairie Spring Field Trial Coming up on March 31

Jimmy Dale McNutt Amateur Shooting Dog Trail

The Central Prairie Field Trial Club will be holding its spring trial here in the Sandy Run Hunt Co. fields on Saturday March 31, 2018.

If you have a good hunting dog, you should consider entering in the Amateur Gun Dog Trial.  The dogs in this trial run the course with another dog, need to be able to find birds, back dogs on point and hold their point until the bird flushes.  Sounds like your dog can do that easy enough, bring him out, maybe you will get one of mine in a brace.

If you are looking for hunting dogs and puppies, you can make some contacts with some folks who know where there are some of the nicest hunting dogs for sale or on the way.  Plus the trials give anyone a chance to see some classy looking dogs in action.  Bring your horse, ATV or walking shoes to be part of the gallery.

Check out some video from the club’s fall trial at Sandy Run.

Phil, Alex, Tyler and Ryan, Upland Bird Hunts

Phil Layman got an overnight upland bird hunt for Christmas, from Alex, Tyler and Ryan. Colton Wilkins took them out to the Clubhouse for their first afternoon hunt. They had a good hunt, cleaning up most of the pheasant and chukar but leaving some quail. Some smoked ribs for dinner, a few beverages and then up for bacon and eggs for breakfast. They decided to go back to the Clubhouse Field to get a crack at their leftover quail plus a pile of new birds. Travis Devall and his dogs did a nice job and they came back with most of their quarry.

Tom, Jim, TJ and Ben, Pheasant Hunt

Tom, TJ, Ben and Jim Jenkins came out for a family pheasant hunt. Colton Wilkins brought out his shorthair and setter to find and point the big birds in the Clubhouse Field. I think they got chances at all their birds, some more than once and came back with a bench full.

Brad, Randy and Jim, Quail Hunt

Brad Shoults and Randy Rehkop added a third hunter, Jim Woelich to their quail hunting party. They brought out their pointers to find the quail coveys stashed along the west side of the Clubhouse Field. Some nice rises in the prairie and then a bunch of shooting in the fencerows and timber.
