On Dec. 7 the Greater Utah Pointing Club's Orson Rich hosted a National Shoot to Retrieve Association trial at the Big Spring Ranch located behind the East Carbon Development Corporation along Utah State Road 123.

The two day event included four field trials, two each day, and was attended by handlers and shooters from all over the state.

During the competition which is called a brace, two dogs and their handlers, with the option shoot their own birds or take a designated shooter along, are let loose on 40 acres of property to test the efficiency and obedience of their purebred dogs.

The dogs are scored from 1-100 on the manner in which they point or find a bird, from 1-100 on their retrieve, from 1-75 on the manner in which they back off another dogs point, from 1-75 on obedience and from 1-100 on the amount of ground they cover during the 30 minute brace. Judges follow competitors on four wheelers and no more than six individuals are allowed on the field at once. Additionally, the more birds found during the brace the better score the dog and his handler will receive.

During each brace five birds are planted for each dog in a field which has been previously cleared by officials.

Next month Tom Kosmack will chair an amateur trial for those looking to get into the sport.

In the Saturday A-Field, Brad Jenkins of Roosevelt won the event with Shane Nielson coming in second and Scott Smith from Alpine taking third. In the B-Field the Saturday winner was Mark Donovan from Bozeman Mont., Art Trujillo of Ogden taking second and Gary Bauer bringing home third.

In the Sunday A-Field, Art Trujillo took first with Shane Nielson again taking second and Lovel Young from Vernal bringing home third. In the Sunday B-Field, the winner was Danny Felter from Myton with Art Trujillo in second and Mike Barker from Spring Glen in third.
