Field Trial Results 2023/24
STAKE 1: AV OPEN RETRIEVER
NDWGC One day Open Retriever Trial at Honeycombe Shoot Dorset on 5 October 2023
A fabulous day with the guns shooting superbly and some really good dog work with a mix of walk up and a challenging drive in woodland, testing the dogs natural hunting ability. The club is so grateful to Mike and Antonia Appleby and their great team, allowing us to be here today and their wonderful hospitality for the guns, Judges, helpers and competitors is really appreciated.
A huge thank you to Nick Jordan and his team of guns who support our day and always put plenty of birds on the ground for our competitor’s.
