Member Accomplishments

A club is only as strong as its members.  Bushkill is fortunate to have a small group of very devoted members that contribute their time, knowledge, and friendship to those interested in training their pointing dogs.  Accomplishments of our members are a direct result of their time, effort, and the sometimes endless energy they have put into the success of their dogs. 
Members are welcome to email a photo and short write up to the webmaster for submission on this page -
