This training day will be held at Cobb Lake from 7am to 4pm on May 4, 2019. Please read the material on the Training tab and the Training/Training Days page for an overview of our approach to the different levels and areas of training. Also, see the Resources tab with links to February and March homework descriptions. These training days are conducted to help teach you how to train your own pointing dog. In order to develop your dog into a reliable and consistent hunting companion, it is advantageous to spend time training your dog at home daily as well as exposing your dog to birds in the field throughout the month.

Please register by filling in the form below. There is no cost for members to attend. If you are a Utility level trainer and would like to participate in the formal group exercises you will need to purchase birds.  For the field training exercises you must have 2 chukar and for the retrieving exercises you will need to pay $5.00 for use of ducks.

After the formal portion of the training day you are welcome to continue training on your own. Handlers can purchase additional birds for your own training as well as required birds.  Natural Ability handlers may want to purchase a few chukar to plant in the field to do some larger field searches with their puppies.  Utility trainers may also consider purchasing a live duck for duck chases on land or beginning of duck search in the water as the weather has warmed.  Fill out the total number of chukar, ducks, and pheasants you want to order from Black Hollow Gamebirds on the form. Your birds will be available first thing in the morning in the north parking lot of Cobb Lake State Wildlife Area. Please arrive early to purchase and collect your birds. Remember to bring your own bird bag and cage for transport of birds. Once you take possession of your birds, they are your responsibility!

Please indicate in the ‘Training Focus/Comment’ section any issue that you may want extra help with and we will attempt to be prepared to help or answer questions.

2021 – Annual Meeting

Hello Everyone!
Please see the below message from our Jake Heesacker, our Chapter President. Only paid 2020 and 2021 memberships will receive a link to attend our annual meeting. As you will read below, you can now pay your dues online; making it easier than ever to stay current. THANK YOU to Steve Roberts for making this happen for us.

Hello RMC NAVHDA members!

I hope each and every one of you has been able to get your dogs out and enjoy some hunting this season!

As hunting season winds down for the year, it is time to start preparing for training and testing season. Every year we kick off the new training season with our annual meeting, and this year will be no different. However, with the current state of COVID-19 and the regulations regarding large indoor gatherings, we will be holding a virtual annual meeting for 2021.

The RMC NAVHDA Annual Meeting will be held virtually on January 9, 2021 at 6:00pm.

The week prior to the meeting I will send out an invite to all of you with the link to the meeting. At that time I will also send all of you a copy of the agenda and chapter financial report. At the meeting we will discuss the dates of our upcoming tests as well as training opportunities in 2021.

The annual meeting is also where the membership has the opportunity to volunteer and vote for positions on the RMC Board of Directors. If you would like to volunteer to serve on the RMC Board of Directors in 2021, please reply to this email so I can reach out to you and discuss opportunities to serve next year.

I would also like to take this time to remind everyone that chapter memberships are due for renewal on January 1, 2021. I would also like to announce that you are now able to renew your membership (or become a new member if you have a friend looking to join the chapter) on the website via credit card at rmc-navhda.com. I would like to shout out a huge THANK YOU to Steve Roberts and Candice Cooper for getting our chapter set up to take credit card payments on the website! It makes paying our memberships more convenient for everybody! Here is the link to the website for memberships: https://www.rmc-navhda.com/join/

Thank you all for being members of our great chapter! Myself and the Board are looking forward to seeing and training with each and everyone of you in 2021!
