October 7, 2017 Gun Dog and Puppy Trials

October 8, 2017

The Tulsa Bird Dog Association kicked off the second half of our 2017 season with the first Gun Dog and Puppy trial of the fall. The conditions started out a bit soggy in the morning, getting better throughout mid day and ended fairly warm with temperatures in the low 80s. We would like to thank our judges, Ellison Gilliland, Tom Krause and Ben Faulkner. All the help banding and planting birds was much appreciated by the trial chairman Ben Faulkner and of course we want to thank out sponsor, Purina for all the support they give us for each and…

March 18, 2017 Gun Dog and Puppy Trial Results

March 19, 2017

Last weekend was cold and wet, so it being Oklahoma, this weekend was hot and dry. But it was a beautiful spring morning and thanks to Randy Billington getting the birds out to the grounds early, we started right on time. The early dogs certainly had the advantage with the temps really climbing and the after lunch braces were having to really watch the dogs and spend a lot of time at water barrels. Got it done without any big problems, other than it was obvious that the big knot-headed males ran themselves right into the ground, everybody ended it…

Roy E. Marshall Memorial Gun Dog Championship

March 19, 2017

Saturday morning dawned with low clouds spitting snow and sleet while a 20 mph wind backed them up. It wasn’t long before everyone was feeling sorry for the judges, Carl Brown and Elllison Gilliard,  as they came in to warm up after their brace and the judges went back out. The dogs didn’t care and, this being a championship, several great performances were turned in. Larry Moore’s bad weather dog, Hoss, had the high score of the day with 3 TBDA dogs making the 8 dog call back for Sunday morning’s Top Dog competition. That included Haley Caveny and her Vizsla, Outlaw, who…

March 4, 2017 Gun Dog and Puppy Trial Results

March 5, 2017

    Yes it was really like that Red and Rover cartoon. High winds greeted the early brace pairings, the late brace pairings and everything in between. Scenting conditions were not good with the first three braces having half, three dogs, with blanks on the score board. Those birds that were found did not hold and were pretty fast leaving the area with a 30 mph tail wind. The scores reflected the conditions for the 15 braces of gun dog, our second sell out in a row for the 2017 season. Our record-setting 18 puppies didn’t care, running and romping…

February 18, 2017 Gun Dog and Puppy Trial Results

February 19, 2017

What a great start to the season we had on Saturday. With excellent weather and a record-setting draw of 50 dogs, we had a great time and saw some stellar dog work. We often sell out or come close on our Gun Dog trial in the spring. People are excited coming out of the bird season and the weather is always great. But this weekend we not only sold out our Gun Dog trial but ran 17 puppies and 3 fun hunts as well. That is just beyond what we have ever seen when it comes to puppies. And as…
