Big Sky Field Trial Club 2011 Shooting Dog Classic

This past weekend found us in Circle, MT competing in the BSFTC Shooting dog Classic. It was a one hour stake which started 17 dogs. The grounds at Circle are amazing and made for big running dogs pursued on Horse back. Luke and Teigen had the afternoon braces and although both layed down good races, neither minded thier manners on thier birds and were picked up before time expired. But they looked good going...

Sammy placed third amongst the eleven dogs drawn for the 30 minute All Age Derby stake.

Front row(l to r) Dave Noell with Lone Mountain Reliant placed 1st, owned and handled by John Mandell, Railita and Austin Turley place 2nd, Willow Creek Peggy and Isaiah Todd placed 3rd.
Back Row(l to r) Tom Nygard, John Mandell, Judge Sonny Clark, John Todd and Shannon Nygard.

Spring Training

Winter has finally let loose it's grasp on us here in Montana. We've been getting the dogs out regularily and milking the last few weeks available to us on wild birds before they begin nesting. Hopefully the boys will be ready for the BSFTC Shooting Dog Classic on April 16th.
