Field Trial Report

German Shorthaired Pointer Club of Central Iowa

By Brent Hoehns | Oct 31, 2019

Columbia, Ia. — The German Shorthaired Pointer  Club of Central Iowa hosted their fall walking trial on Saturday, October 12, on the private farm land of Wayne and Jo Langstraat and Dude and Rachel Hoehns near Columbia, Ia.

A wet spring for planting, and six inches of rain in early October had the harvest a bit behind schedule in Southern Iowa.

The courses were mowed well, but still fairly green. The draws, bottoms, and sidehills were available as always, but the hilltops still had standing corn and likely would for another 2-3 weeks.

The day started near freezing, but warmed up to the mid-50s. Good weather for running dogs except for 25 mph southwesterly winds.

As always, a trial takes a lot of work from many people to run smoothly. We would like to thank Kim Hoehns and Chris Bender for help with the meals. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at the trial grounds, as well as a delicious supper at the local Columbia Community Center.

Thanks to Jeff Wallace for taking care of the multitude of paperwork involved with running a field trial as well as filling in planting birds.

Thanks to Larry Bradley and Greg Isaacson for planting birds as well. The always helpful Kendall Brown helped run the dog wagon. Thanks to Marty Malloy for providing great flying quail for the event.

John Roslien helped set up water on the course. Keith Thompson helped with camp setup and kindly let us borrow his UTV for a dog wagon.

Winning the Open Shooting Dog was Miss Kitty Russell, white and black  pointer female with a stop to flush on wild pheasant, a second find on quail and a nice forward race. Second was German Shorthair female Bradley’s All Ryled Up, handled by Larry Bradley. Third was the stylish German Shorthair  female Cajun’s Hi N’s Two Moons handled by Daniel Tang. The stake was judged by Minnesota judge Andy Weyer assisted by the steady oversight of Ken Windom of Cambridge, Ia.

The Amateur Shooting Dog was won by Oklahoman Emmet Sasser with his German Shorthair female Emma placing first, followed by his male Woody taking second. Third place was awarded to Larry and Sean Bradley’s Outbak’s Gunpowder and Lace. This stake was overseen by judges Justin Hess and Bruce Heiter.

We had an excellent class of Derbies this weekend looked over by Ken Windom and your scribe. First was awarded to Hess Farms Orange Blaze, handled by rookie dog handler Jason Boschert. Second was Wisconsin native Courtney Campeau with fancy German Shorthair Top Fuel’s Bail Jumper. Placed third was Hess Farms Pyromaniac, Vizsla male handled by Samantha Dumm.

Campeau’s runner-up Derby also placed first in the Puppy Stake with impressive ground moves and advanced bird work. Second went to Todd Meyer’s vizsla male Meyer’s Bustin the Coop, with Heading For the Rhubarb, handled by Levi Bruns, rounding out the placements. The puppy stake was judged by Justin Hess and Dr. Kelley Donham.

As always, we would like to thank NBHA sponsors, Purina along with Garmin and Mule Brand Gear. Gun Dog Supply donated gift certificates which were raffled at supper and these were certainly appreciated as well.
