What pro's (field trial or hunt test) are around Tyler, Waco, Austin, or San Antonio? I'm traveling down Hwy 31 & I-35 through those towns on a regular basis & would like to meet a few, help throw some birds & possibly place my pup with them when the time comes. Please specify if they're hunt testers or field trialers. Thanks in advance for any recommendations :D.

Dozens in the wintertime. I think most of them will be up north now.

Angie Becker (on this frum) is around Austin. Mostly HT I think. She would be a good contact person.

Rorem, Beck, Gunzer, to name just a few are a little further east.

Check Angie Becker one of the good ones here to see if you can work something out. She is in MI now.

Jack Morris of Stellar Retrievers is in Giddings. He is a great hunt test pro, and has been successful in field trials as well.
Bill Eckett (field trials) winters right next door to Jack on another piece of property like 1 mile away.
Dave Rorem (field trials) is just a bit south and east of Giddings in Fayetteville during the winter months.

Hope this info helps.

Terry,

Clay Bridges is just west of Longview. He's a young-dog field trial pro (basics through about the qual level), but I wouldn't hesitate to put a dog with him regardless of your plans for the dog. He worked with Danny Farmer for 4+ years. He probably does basics as thoroughly as anyone. He doesn't run many trials so your dog is trained 6 days a week.

Terry,
X2 on Jack. I threw birds and trained with him for over a year, then left my dog with him for several months when my 1st son was born.

You have some good names to start with. Tim Springer is in that area in the winter and does a very good job with young dogs.
