WRC Outdoor Training - August

Greetings WRC Members!

Our outdoor training day will be this Sunday, Aug 5 from 7:45 am-5 pm. Training Day will be held at the Coon Rock Horse and Hunt Club (6180 Erdman Rd, Arena, WI 53503.) Please note there is a $3 collar fee.

Bird orders need to be submitted to our Training Director, Jacob Zeuske, no later than Noon on Friday, Aug. 3. Jacob will confirm your order upon receipt.  We will not bring extra birds on the day of training, so please order in advance. 

We have the following birds available: 

  • Quail: $6
  • Chukar: $8.50
  • Pheasants for NA only: $9.75
  • Ducks: $13.50

Kevin Seymour will supply the main dish for lunch on training day. Please consider bringing a dish to pass.

Member Shawn C. Bogdanske, veterinarian at Lodi Veterinary Care, will be giving a First Aid demonstration.

Be sure to bring a tie-out stake, check cord and leash, training collars, bird bag, and water for your dog. Bug repellent is also recommended. The chapter will have a limited supply of bird bags available for purchase at $30/each. Due to an insurance policy requirement, please remember that only break action, single or double barrel guns are allowed. Semiauto or pump shotguns are prohibited in the training field. Everyone in the field should also have an article of blaze orange on.

Remember to bring cash or checkbook for bird, collar and membership fees. If you haven't already, please renew your membership. 

Looking forward to seeing everyone!
All the best,
Rachelle Blair-Frasier

Sporting Clays Fun Shoot

The summer of training is winding down and hunting season is just around the corner. To help the transition, we thought it would be fun to gather for a friendly round of sporting clays or two at the Waunakee Gun Club this coming Sunday the 28th around 10am until about noon. There is no agenda, just an informal gathering of anyone who might want to get together with NAVHDA training friends and talk about fall hunting plans while brushing up the shooting skills.

If you think you might make it out, send an email to Jacob (jrzeuske@wisc.edu) so we will know to keep an eye out.

Hope to see you there.

We will be hosting a professional trainer on the weekend of July 23rd / 24th to help educate members that are looking to make the jump from Natural Ability dogs into Utility and beyond.

Attendees will be charged a fee to reserve their spot but the details for that are still being figured out. Jacob Zeuske will be sending out more information as details are nailed down.
