Dates: 03/24/2007 - 03/25/2007

Spring in Pennsylvania means muddy dogs and handlers. The DC Weim Club's annual Spring Hunt Test was a busy one, and we're just sharing a few shots from between braces.

The first brace sets off on their Master run, with the morning's judges on horseback behind. The handlers are carrying shotguns, but only as props. Once they're in the bird field, they'll lift those guns as if shooting, while the gunners do the actual gunning. That's to make sure the dog's steady when a gun comes up.

Meena, a young Pointer, is checking out the staging area at the Senior/Master field. She seems to find the box of quail more interesting than the box of chukar.
