Pointers and flushers welcome in two divisions for September 25th event to "Reload Iowa"

Riverside, Iowa – August 15, 2011- Calling all bird dogs and their owners! Pheasants Forever is hosting a Fall Fun Trail on Sunday, September 25th at Highland Hideaway Hunting in Riverside, Iowa. The trial is open to pointing and flushing breeds, with all proceeds going to Pheasants Forever's Reload Iowa effort to improve wildlife habitat and carry on Iowa's upland hunting tradition.

Pheasants Forever's Fall Fun Trial will include a singles (one hunter and one dog) and doubles (two hunters and one dog) division. In the singles division, hunter and dog will have 15 minutes to score on three quail, and in the doubles division, hunters and dog will have 20 minutes to score on five quail. The event is limited to the first 50 entries, and individuals and teams may enter multiple times. Prizes will be awarded for the first place winner in each division.

"The success of our Spring Fun Trial demonstrated how passionate hunters are about conservation,” said Tom Fuller, Pheasants Forever's Regional Representative in eastern Iowa, "There is no other group more involved with hunting and conservation than bird dog owners, so this initiative is a perfect fit for them to be involved with.” One hundred percent of proceeds from Pheasants Forever's Fall Fun Trial will go to the Reload Iowa effort, which is Pheasants Forever's aggressive strategy for establishing and improving 1 million acres of wildlife habitat, increasing the number of upland hunters and increasing hunting-related revenue to local communities.

The singles event is $30 per run and the doubles event is $50 per run. Clay shooting (5 stand) will be available between runs for $10. Lunch will also be available. Visit Highland Hideaway Hunting for directions. For more information about Pheasants Forever's Fall Fun Trial, including full rules, contact Tom at (319) 321-9775Email Tom.
