Result: Oregon Open Shooting Dog Championship

Location: Maupin, Oregon

Post Date: May 8, 2021

Submitted By: Todd Schaaf

The Oregon Open Shooting Dog was held for the first time May 8 at the Imperial Cattle Company in Maupin Ore. With everything going on in the world we had a great turnout and had a great time.

The drawing was held at the Imperial River Company Restaurant. At the drawing Dan Hoke presented the Club with the first-ever Oregon Shooting Dog Trophy. The trophy was originally The David B. Story All-Age Trophy from the Cascade All-Age AKC Club. The Cascade Club has been inactive for the past ten years and Dan Hoke was given the OK to donate it to the Oregon Shooting Dog along with a handcrafted wooden case he had made.

With help from Stephen "Steeple" Bell, Dan was able to go back to the start of the Championship and listed all the champion dogs, owners and handlers. They were able to find all the info for the runner-up champions as well. This trophy is a true representation of the history of the Oregon Shooting Dog Championship. Thank you, Dan Hoke, Steeple Bell, and all of Dan's dogs and clients who have won the Oregon Shooting Dog for the great trophy.
