2018 NBHA Northeast Regional CH

Posted on : Tuesday April 10 2018

The 2018 NBHA Northeast Regional Championship was held April 5th thru the 7th and contested at the Pine Island Wildlife Refuge in Portage, WI. These grounds are nice and flat with plenty of objectives for dogs to reach out and hunt, although this year the cover was a bit taller than normal which made for finding dogs a little more challenging. To ALL of the owners and handlers who entered dogs, thank you for sticking with us through 5" of snow, frozen ponds, 30 mph winds and wind chills in the single digits.
