Rachel's bird work

May 31, 2011
In April, Rachel made a trip to Decoverly Kennel where she found and pointed her first chukar.  Below is a photo of her find.  On May 28 and 29, 2011, she went to the Delaware Valley German Wirehair Pointer Club's hunt tests in Weatherly, Pa.and picked up her first two Junior Hunter legs.  If you're looking for a fun place to hunt test, I can't recommend them more...the folks are super hospitable, the grounds are great and the food is wonderful!
