It's in the middle of Norway, 1000 meters above sea level, it's where all the Derby's and National FT Championshops are held every year. Endless of flat terrain with lot's of grouse (and some moscus)

Wow! Looks like grand fun! Wish I could be in Norway for this event. My favorite thing in all the world is watching young dogs "turn on" and really "get it."!!!!! Londa, Edmond, OK

Please, what is "moscus"? Tried to use an on-line translator, but came up empty!

In english it's called Muskox (Ovibos moschatus)

Read about it on wikipedia

Hello Dave,

If this had been a field trial-situation (the vid is showing training on pigeons) they would have been eliminated. No chasing allowed! This is the maybe biggest challenge in training birddogs in Norway. Especially since there is a risk of getting a "slow flusher" if you train too hard; in Norway you need to show flush to get a 1st.

It's a fine balance.
