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.
