National Shoot to Retrieve Association NSTRA pointing and retrieving field events are an excellent way for the hunter to keep man’s best friend----that is, if his wife plays golf and doesn’t cook any more---in shape and into birds before and after the upland game bird season. NSTRA was started by a group of dedicated bird hunters who were looking for a way to extend the fun they enjoyed with their bird dogs. Trials not only extend the bird dog season, but also provide a sportsmanlike atmosphere to compete with others who enjoy bird dogs and to recognize their accomplishments. Camaraderie and training philosophies run amok.
