I'm a 20-25,000 round a year guy and a certified instructor. I mostly gave up bird hunting in the states for annual pilgrimages to Argentina.

I used to be big into the Field Trial / NAVHDA scene, but had to put my last dog down just over a year ago.

Now...it's time. I just put a deposit on two Labrador bitches of English conformation.

My time will be mostly devoted to developing these dogs, and the targets....well, the targets will be further and fewer in between and consist mostly of training birds, dove, and quail.

I can't wait.

I had a run of about three years of 15k registered. I had fun and made the state team and had a great time traveling with JC Nunn.

Then it dawned on me - shell prices and entry fees and nobody playing the money made me think - is it really worth it?

Now I shoot the bigger shoots and work at our local club helping run the non-registered and registered events.

SC State - NC State - Konne Yaut Indians - Grand and then our HOF shoot in September are on my schedule this year.

Last year I registered about 4k and had just as much fun and saved about 11k. I do have other interests including ham radio - fishing and I really enjoy camping.

Have fun regardless of what you do and I think you will be richer for it...

Fred,

You forgot the Georgia State Shoot. We're reserving 2 plates of Big Pigs BBQ for you.

We went and visited the 2.5 week old pups yesterday. Here is my son holding one of them.

We need two girl names...I'm leaning towards Trixie & Daisy. Wife is fine with Daisy, but says no to Trixie.
