National Shoot to Retrieve Association Bird Dog Trials
National Shoot to Retrieve Association NSTRA pointing and retrieving field events are an excellent way for the hunter to keep man’s best friend in shape and into birds before and after the upland game bird season. NSTRA was started by a group of dedicated bird hunters who were looking for a way to extend the fun they enjoyed with their bird dogs. Trials not only extend the bird dog season, but also provide a sportsmanlike atmosphere to compete with others who enjoy bird dogs and to recognize their accomplishments. Camaraderie and training philosophies run amok.
