UKC/HRC Links and Clubs ^Top

The United Kennel Club has always been a great friend to hunters everywhere. "We are not a company that chooses to ride the fence on the issue of hunting. We believe in the right to keep and bear arms. We view the sport of hunting as a valued family tradition that is not only a great source of recreational activity but also a necessary tool in the goals of game management. The UKC publicly supports all organizations that work hard to protect gun ownership and all legal forms of hunting.".

The preamble of the Hunting Retriever Club, Inc. constitution states its primary purpose to be: "...the betterment of Hunting Retrievers as a whole and to influence the breeding and training of a better and finer Hunting Retriever; to provide hunters and Hunting Retrievers a series of actual Hunting tests in a controlled system and furnish an ongoing educational program for the Hunters, for their training, experience, and sporting competition. Further, it is the purpose of this Association to support and protect the inherent rights of its members to own, hunt, bear arms, to promote the breed and type of dog of their choice and promote complimentary conservation and management of game birds and wildlife species commonly pursued by the members of the Hunting Retriever Club, Inc.".

Affiliated with HRC/UKC. Club holds a training session every month and hosts two Hunt Tests per year - one in the spring (usually held in the Madison Georgia area) and one in the fall (usually held just north of Columbus Georgia).
