Hi Claire
First Field Trial for me coming up in a couple of weeks I am really looking forward to doing this.
I use to hunt Pheasant, quail and Duck in my early years like 30 years ago.. Smile
Anyone out there willing to share their experiences and tell me what kind of a weekend to expect and what not to forget to bring!

Thanks
Sue

Wear clothes that won't soak through and can handle thorns and nettles, and boots. They start first thing in the morning and the grass and brush is really dewy and you'll soak to the skin in minutes if you just wear normal clothing. The collar for your dog needs to have no tags on it, and you'll need a line that you can put through it and let go of-something like tent line works fine, just cut it to about 10 feet long total (so folded, it'll be about 5 feet), and burn the ends so they won't unravel. Have fun-just tell everyone you're new-the people at field trials are great-they'll help guide you through how it works.

Came back from my 1st field trial a couple of weeks ago. Although the first time in and off the brace my dog looked at me like ok now what.. with his paws up for me to pick him up... Smile the 2nd day was better. We constantly beat the bush as the bunnies were limited which makes it a very long day. Will try again as i would expect my dogs will get why they are there. Was great to see our breed work the field for what they were actually bred for.
