TBDA Trial results 10-6-18

October 7, 2018

For those not there, I’m sure you will be surprised to learn we didn’t get a drop of rain all day. That was the good news. The bad news it was hot and humid. Handlers had to be very guarded with their dogs. These dogs will run for us, literally till they die, so it was up to us to take care of them. Kelly Sample was in the first brace and laid down a score for everyone to chase. He then drove to Stillwater for the game so missed all the praise and the critique. Ha. Gene Gray and…

March 31, 2018 Gun Dog and Puppy Trial Results

April 1, 2018

It was a beautiful morning with a full moon lighting the way through the gate, just before the sun came up. We dodged a couple of rain showers and it never got as warm as forecasted. The grounds were wet in low places but the cover was excellent and if the planters didn’t throw them in a puddle, the birds flew really well. The scenting conditions seemed perfect to us humans but the dogs, with the 15-17 mph breeze, seemed to have some difficulty pinning them down. Three finds got you in the game but as usual retrieving and a…

March 17, 2018 Gun Dog and Puppy Trial Results

March 18, 2018

A beautiful day after a week of troubling forecasts. The birds from Phillip Ezell flew great, the judges, Ellison Gilliland and Matt Brown, did a great job. Nobody got shot, nobody contested a score, and there was some great dog work to score for a change. Tom Krause’s Dapper Dan was accused of peeking from the blind when the birds were being planted, because he scored 3 birds in about as many minutes to start his brace and his run to the 1st place score. Ben Faulkner’s Shelly turned in another stellar performance which is becoming the norm. James Parnell…

March 3, 2018 Gun Dog and Puppy Trial Results

March 6, 2018

It was a beautiful day at the grounds on Saturday for our first trial of the year. Larry Moore threw down the gantlet with a 144 score in the first brace, which more than held up till the last two braces of the day when the conditions changed with the wind dropping along with the temps a little or the bird build up reached the tipping point, don’t know. But in any case, Ben Faulkner’s Shelly, the old pro that she is, brought it home primarily on her retrieving performance. We all wonder about what effects the scenting conditions, (humidity,…

November 4th Gun Dog and Puppy Trial Results

November 7, 2017

With the opening of bird season just around the corner, the TBDA closed out it’s 2017 field trial season on November 4th at the club trial grounds in Inola, Okla. The weather was cool and wet with fog hiding the sun for most of the day, the end results being much lower temperatures that forecasted for the afternoon. That combined with a moderate number of entries ensured that no one ran in the heat as the evening fell. A number of dogs made their point that they can still get it done and are looking forward to another great season…

October 21, 2017 Gun Dog and Puppy Trial Results

October 23, 2017

It was a bit windy, overcast, and warm. Not good scenting conditions to start and it got worse. All except for the old dog who was trying to impress. Roscoe, Tom Alexander’s old war horse, who hadn’t run this year giving up starting position to the younger GSP Candy Man, had a point he wanted to make. Don’t count me out boss. And with nearly 100 points over the next closest dog, he made that point on Saturday.  Second place went to Sassy, setter female, handled by RuSean Hardman and third went to Tara, GSP female, handled by Keith Lindsay. Over…
