Russ Graber and his dog Sky won the overall amateur division. Russ’ dog found all four birds with a time of 7 minutes and 36 seconds, for a total of eight points. Brian Kynaston was his shooter with perfect shooting that also yielded them the award for the fastest time in the amateur event. David Penner and his dog Cooper won runner-up in the amateur division. Cooper was able to find four birds with a time of 9 minutes and 10 seconds and a total score of eight points. Congratulations to them both!

In the professional class, we had nine dog runs. Mike Wallace with his dog Tess won overall with a perfect run (four birds pointed, shot, fully retrieved) with a time of 9 minutes and 44 seconds. Allen Makovec ran his dog Coy who also had a perfect run with a time of 10 minutes and 6 seconds to earn runner-up in the professional division. Paula Wallace and her dog Versace won the award for first bird in hand with a time of 1 minute and 20 seconds. Our professional class hunters are heading over to Topeka for the World Dog Championship this weekend. Best of luck to them all!

Notice for Hunting and Gun Range Use

The McPherson Valley Uplands Outdoor Life Center was designed as a supervised youth education and training center. As such, we do not allow public hunting or unsupervised use of firearms on the facility except during authorized Uplands events. Our gun range is limited to shotgun and small caliber firearms but is not open to the public. Our facility is used extensively by the public for hiking, nature walks and school events, so we carefully restrict firearms for everyone’s safety.

We hope you enjoy our facility during our many hunter safety courses, archery events, ladies outdoor days or by appointment. If your group wishes to use the facility, please schedule an event on our calendar.
