Ravenwood, MO - -(Ammoland.com)- Bird Hunters United: Tell us about your dog?
Jake is a 5 year old English Setter out of Speck, a Tekoa Mountain Sunrise bred dog I owned and Faith, a bitch out of my 7 time NSTRA champion Dakota.
BHU: What kind of gun do you use?
A 20 gauge Beretta Urika 391 or 20 gauge Beretta O/U
BHU: What was the toughest challenge becoming Amateur Champion?
Keeping your dogs conditioned and on birds.
BHU: What other dog activities do you enjoy?
Wild bird hunting.
BHU: Who’s helped you the most?
Many, but probably Harold Adams the most. Over the years his seminars and training video’s
have set a foundation for many handlers and trainers. A day spent one on one with Harold
training bird dogs is very rewarding.
Judging field trials has made me a better handler. judging some of the best dogs and handlers
in the country will give you a different perspective, you can really learn from the best our sport
has to offer.
BHU: Has BHU made you and your dog better hunter’s, if so how?
Competition drives you and your dog to do better.
BHU: With the AC on your CKC pedigree you now have a proven gun dog worthy of breeding. Any
plans in the future on breeding?
Not at this time.
BHU: In your words, what is a champion handler and dog in BHU?
A dog and handler that consistently perform well.
BHU: Wrapping it up.
BHU has a great group of dogs and handlers, it’s always a good time. I think one
thing all of us should remember to do is to thank the judges and bird planters. They
do a lot of work so that the rest of us can play and we also need to thank the landowners
that provide the fields for our trials, we sure can’t have a trial without them.
Congrats to AC Jake and Mark
