Brad Harter, National Championship

News from Ames

Earlier this week I spoke with Brad Harter, videographer of the National Championship for over 26 years. Brad assured me that despite the horrendous weather the 2015 running has been experiencing, coveys of quail have been seen feeding. For those keeping track of the championship, this year offers more information than in years prior thanks to the daily postings of information and photos on the Ames website. This year as well, Brad has been posting Video Clips of the handlers flushing birds for the dogs.

If you are on Facebook, there is a National Championship page where more photos
and info is being posted by Vera Courtney…and creators of the National Championship
Almanac: Stephen Bell, Bubba and Amy Spencer.

Thanks to everyone for keeping those of us unable to attend in the loop. And good
luck to the owners, handlers and dogs still to compete!

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.
