Welcome To NSTRA's Website!
The National Shoot To Retrieve Association (NSTRA) was founded by a group of dedicated bird hunters looking for a way to extend the fun they enjoyed with their bird dogs after their season ended. Field Trials, under hunting conditions, were the answer. Field Trials provide an extended the season, a sportsmanlike environment and competition with others who enjoy bird dogs.
The Association was incorporated in 1978. NSTRA is a non-profit association with service to the members and sportsmanship as its goals.
This site is intended to assist you in becoming a new member and to provide all members with current information including Championship Trial results, Dog Records, Regional Data and Field Trial Schedules.
We hope you will visit our site often and tell your friends to visit too. Consider Membership in NSTRA. Attend a NSTRA trial in your area. You can find trial listings for you area on our NSTRA Regions Page.
