A new Versatile Champion!


Rick trains a new generation of distraction gunners.

If you’ve attended a Rocky Mountain Chapter training or test day in the last few years, you’ve undoubtedly run in to Rick Huber.

In addition to running the Frontier Chapter, Rick is one of the most reliable, selfless and giving volunteers the Rocky Mountain Chapter has.

So it’s with great pride that we congratulate Rick and his burly, loveable Wirehaired Pointing Griffon Norton on a great achievement – earning the title of NAVHDA Versatile Champion!

From all of us at the Rocky Mountain Chapter – Congratulations Rick & Norton!

Can’t wait to hear the story!


Tom Swezey judging the Rocky Mountain Chapter’s fall test.

Congrats also to Tom Swezey, another pillar of the Chapter, for qualifying Lunn’s Rock Star – only the 81st Irish Setter ever to be registered by NAVHDA – for this year’s Invitational. Like Rick, Tom is selfless with his time, counsel and advice. He’s a highly respected GSP breeder, taken who knows how many dogs to the Invitational,  has served as a mentor to too many current and former Chapter members to count. Tom is irreplaceable resource for the Chapter.

Tom judged our fall test and also served as an Invitational Judge on Thursday.
Tom- thanks for all you do.

Take note all you Rocky Mountain Chapter UT handlers out there: You can get there from here – and we’re ready to help. Have a great hunting season and let’s get you ready for your own Invitational story!
