My wife and I will be moving from western AB to the Bathurst area later this summer. I am curious as to what type of game birds you have in NB. I am assuming Ruffed Grouse and Woodcock. Any others? We have a GSP and a young Braque Francais. Our GSP has hunted in every type of cover from the foothills of AB to the wide open prairie of SK AB and MT.

Do any of you do any trialing or belong to a NAVHDA chapter? Is anyone in the Bathurst area who would like to get together and do some training and tuning of their pointers?

Hey BF.
Grouse and woodcock are the only Upland birds that have a season in New Brunswick. There are some wild Pheasants in the south but they are a protected bird. We have several Pheasant Preserves where you can hunt released birds for a fee. Some of these preserves have other species as well. For instance, the Shepody Pheasant Preserve raises Chukars as well.

The closest NAVHDA chapter is in Nova Scotia. We do have an active field trial circuit with several fall trials with training seminars and clinics throughout the year. Let me know when you get in town and I can lead you in the right direction.

Thank you. I will do that.
