Members plant birds, chair trials attend fundraisers and various other tasks for the club and each other.  

Our field trials typically run February through May. These trials are for fun and friendly competition and can also be used as a training experience, especially for the new member. During the rest of the year we have a summer picnic  along with a Christmas party. We also have a booth at the International Sportsmens Exposition every year.

 April 30 trial has been 

rescheduled to next the weekend due to upcoming weather

The purpose of our Club is to provide a place for members to train their pointing Dog(s) year round and extended the hunting experience through friendly, competitive field trials. We have approximately 150 acres of land 12 miles north of Strasburg, Co. We have a spacious club house  and for your convenience a porta potty is there year round.

We strive to promote the pointing dog breed not for profit or personal gain but to promote upland game hunting, dog training, field safety and to share and teach others.
