2019 Schedule of Events

The training day registration form must be completed by the Saturday before the scheduled Monthly Training Day if you plan to attend. In addition to being a current member, the Bushkill Chapter charges $5 per dog per monthly training to cover expenses such as permits and insurance. Payment for birds and handlers fees are expected at the beginning of the training day. If you order birds and then do not attend training, you will still be billed for the birds you ordered.

Training Day Rules:
  • Register for each training day (due the Saturday before event).

  • Everyone must wear a blaze orange hat and vest.

  • Dispose of all dead birds and trash properly.

  • Keep your dogs on a leash or in a kennel when not engaged in training activities.

  • Only approved gunners are permitted to shoot live rounds.

  • Band all ducks, pheasants, and quail...the chapter typically has bands available for sale.

  • Follow all PA Game Commission Rules and Regulations

  • Maintain active membership in the chapter & NAVHDA National and have all release forms signed.
