NBHA (National Bird Hunters Assoc.) is a National walking field trial association with walking handlers (like cover dog) and mounted judges, scouts and gallery. There are many www forums open to all field trialers and PROSPECTIVE trialers alike. At the top of this "HB" site (that Gary has graciously provided) it states..."This message board is for All-Age, Shooting Dog Horseback, National Bird Hunters, US Complete Field Trailers, and Big Running Hunting Dogs.(No Cover Dogs) This site is to learn and discuss the trials and breeding of bird dogs....Thanks, Gary Ansell"
I have actually emailed Gary about this to confirm that he is open to our postings and he is. We post our drawings, results, events, etc here because of the followers on ALL sites. We greatly appreciate interested parties from ANY venue!
I am the National Secretary for the NBHA and have dogs (the same ones) that run ALL three venues...Walking, HB and Cover Dog. So to pigeon hole the dogs (or handlers) to one "board" would not be appropriate. There is a lot of cross-over.
We LOVE to welcome new and old followers to come and spend a weekend with us! You would have a great time!
