2013 Pheasant Hollow Chukar Championship
April 20th & 21st
April 20th and 21st, NYBDS and NJGD kicked off the 2013 Chukar Championship at Pheasant Hollow in Bloomfield, NY! Saturday, the tournament got off to a chilly start with temperatures in the mid 30's and winds gusts up to 35mph. Everyone came out to play and despite the conditions, we had some great runs on Saturday. Sunday was beautiful, a little chilly in the morning, but by the afternoon, we had sunshine and temperatures in the mid to upper 40's. We had a nice turn out for a small tournament and got to see some new faces along with some of our seasoned veterans. NYBDS and NJGD would like to thank our judges, bird planters, participants and everyone who came out and made this a successful and fun event!
