Berea, Ky. — We were happy to be at Miller Welch WMA in Berea, Ky., for the ABHA Central Regional Championship. The grounds were in great shape thanks to the grounds crew.

We thank our judges Roy Richardson from Kentucky and Bill Hoover from Ohio for doing a great job and giving their undivided attention to all the dogs. Their decisions were well received. Thanks to Bill Brown for planting birds and doing anything that was needed.


Named winner was Katlyn’s Jan, setter female owned and handled by Ronnie Rogers of New Market, Tenn. Jan was spectacular from start to finish with her desire and fast drive to find birds for her handler. When she did score on birds multiple times she was nothing but perfect, high and tight, great job for a super nice dog. Congratulations to Ronnie for a great handling job.

Runner-up was Branscum’s Cash Delivery, owned and handled by Mike Branscum of Nancy, Ky. “Banker” is a beautiful pointer male. After Banker’s breakaway he was not seen until 15 but was found up front on point. After a relocation bird was moved and everything was in order. All of Banker’s bird work was like a picture. Banker had a nice hour but on this day Jan was too much to overcome.

Berea, Ky., October 13 — One Course

Judges: Bill Hoover and Roy Richardson


6 Pointers and 6 Setters

Winner—KATLYN’S JAN, 1647516, setter female, by Jetsetter—Jacque’s Little Eva. W. R. Rogers, owner and handler.

Runner-Up—BRANSCUM’S CASH DELIVERY, 1656983, pointer male, by Branscum’s Doc Holiday—Long Run Annie. Mike Branscum, owner and handler.


First place Beaucoup Creek Gus, setter male owned and handled by Don Heisner, set the standard with a huge ground race and a couple of good finds. Second was Beaucoup Creek Buck, setter male owned and handled by Don Heisner. Buck did a nice job to the front with bird work in order, but on this day not as powerful as Gus. Third was Sky Hawk’s Diamond Duke, setter male owned by Daniel Bridgewater, handled by Justin Crook. Duke was a pleasure to watch. He was big to the front and came back when called upon. Maybe the cream of the crop on the ground but he went birdless.
