    This event is a fun time with a realistic goose and duck hunting scenario. A very popular event that had to be cancelled last year. Looking forward to getting some things back to normal.
    Companion Retriever Hunting Challenge

    June 26 at Godfrey’s Pond near Batavia, NY


    September 25 at the Olean, NY Outdoor Show

    This is a fun event representing an actual duck hunt over water and a field goose hunt. Open to all sporting breeds that waterfowl hunt. All dogs should be familiar with multiple shots from a 12 gauge shotgun.

    NO dogs that currently hold a hunt test or field trial title are allowed to enter

    NO professional trainers allowed to handle dogs.

    Registration fee is $35 per dog. All fees for the Godfreys Pond event will be donated to the clubs conservation programs.

    All fees and donations at the Olean event will be given to Ducks Unlimited.

    Scoring will be done by Jim Beverly. 1,2 & 3 highest scores will receive an attractive Plaque. There will be a lottery for prizes open to ALL Handlers regardless of score.

    The focus is on enjoying the experience with the dogs and networking with fellow waterfowl hunters. No pressure and plenty of help available. Jim Beverly and Andy Merkel will assist each handler with any training or handling tips for those needing it.

    Contact Jim or Andy to request a registration form and specific information on what the challenge consist of.
