Announcement, The American Field

American Field Closure Update

Chicago, Ill. — During his briefing on the coronavirus on Thursday, April 23, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker announced that the “stay at home” order mandated to April 30 was being extended to May 30, another five weeks.That mandate directly affects the American Field Publishing Company, and its staff — advertising, editorial and Field Dog Stud Book personnel.

When normalcy returns (we do not know when that will be or what it will be), the American Field will be in contact with our loyal customers in the field trial and bird dog world, to resolve any questions or issues that may have arisen during this time.

Please Note that all content uploaded to this website since April 1 is open and available to all visitors of this site.

Stay well.



Running Dog


Strideaway is an online publication founded in 2008. We are dedicated to promoting the great sport of American pointing dog field trials, in particular American Field sanctioned trials for pointers and setters. Our objective is to present the voices and ideas of experienced trainers, handlers, breeders and other knowledgeable participants and enthusiasts from the past to the present — amateurs and professionals alike. Whether All-Age or Shooting Dog, Horseback or Walking Trials, we place particular emphasis on wild bird field trials and the dogs that compete in them. We present richly illustrated articles and stories, podcast interviews and other types of media on a regular basis with the hope of providing an ever expanding, searchable archive of information relevant to pointing dog field trials.Read article

This website is dedicated to our ever faithful friend and Strideaway contributor, Bill Allen, whose book The Unforgettables and Other True Fables we published in 2010.
