Great Lakes Chucker Classic "Champion"
Clayton and Fern won the 2008 Chucker Classic. The team beat 6 other dogs including last years classic champion and UT Prize II dog. It was a great day as Clayton and Fern qualified for the finals. Then in the finals they put together the best run of the day. Fern was really moving out covering ground and pointing birds. In the champion run off they scored 70 pts out of a possible 90 pts. The 70 points was the high score for the day! And they brought home the trophy!
It sure is nice to see a dog handle that well for a16 year old young man!! Congratulations Clayton and Fern you make a great hunting team!!!

Hunting Hill's Holly Fern
Fern was born January 17th, 2007. Fern is my son Claytons dog. He has done all the training with Fern. Clayton and Fern have very good relationship and have formed a strong bond. Fern minds Clayton and takes direction from him very well. Clayton ran Fern in her NAVHDA Natural Ability Test. Where they received a Prize I, with 110 pts! This is a great acomplishment for a 16 year old young man and his young Small Munsterlander. We are very proud of Clayton and Fern.
Fern will be PennHip shorthly and submitted for breeding approval with the SMCNA.
Fern had a great fall hunting season. She really started pointing woodcock and grouse. She had a few days where she pointed 15-20 birds! At the age of one years old. We are really looking forward to next hunting season where Fern will have another summer of training and maturing another year.
Fern's dad is VC Cody vom Apfelbaumbach and mother is Loose's Jaika. See their details below.
