Field Trial History Research

American Field Research

I have American Field issues dating from the early 1900s — sporadic issues through the mid-50s, then all issues to the last one published (March 28, 2020). They are organized in labeled tubs (see below) by week and year. I also have all Christmas Editions from the mid-50s.

I charge $35/hr to do research (minimum 1/2 hr @$17.50 which pays for my time refiling the issue). The more information you give me, the faster I can find the information you’re looking for. (ie. for trial reports: the name of the stake, year or range of years, etc.) I can provide what you’re looking for as a cell phone image or I can scan entire field trial reports, compile the scans into high resolution pdfs. Having done this extensively, I can give you an estimate prior to doing the research. There is no charge if I can’t find what you’re looking for. When I have your documents, you can make a quick payment via Venmo and I’ll email your document. If the file is too large to email, I can share it with you via Dropbox. (You don’t need an account for me to share it with you.) I can also bill you via PayPal so you can pay via credit card but I’ll have to include their fee. It’s fine to send a check but obviously it will take much longer to get the files to you.

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, Bill Allen who passed away peacefully and surrounded by his loving family on January 25, 2022 at the age of 96. We will miss him but he left us the greatest of gifts, his wonderful writings in a book we published for the 3rd time in 2021: The Unforgettables and Other True Fables.
