2012 Region 14 Amateur Shooting Dog Championship

The 2012 Region 14 Amateur Shooting Dog Championship completed 15 braces on May 13, 2012. Judges Neil Mason of Calgary, Alberta and Joey DeGross of Saratoga, Wyoming crowned the last dog standing from brace 15, Flatland's By Design, pointer female, owned and handled by Dave Pearson of Wrentham, Alberta, the Champion. The winner had 3 crisp finds and a concerted race. Pearson scored a sweep when his Flatland's Tuff Anuff, pointer dog, was announced the Runner-Up on the merit of his ground race and a single find. Birds were playing hard to get as the weather was too perfect but the grounds at Circle, Montana lived up to its legendary history.
