Central Region

The Central part of the United States makes up the Central region of NAHRA.  This Upper Midwest area of the country has the best waterfowl hunting the U.S.  The Central Flyway and the Mississippi Flyway abundantly attract  many ducks and geese during the Fall and Spring of the year.

We also have some of the best upland hunting in the country, with North and South Dakota leading the way.  Both of these states attract hunters all over the country for Pheasants, Grouse, Partridge, and Waterfowl.  All the more reason to use a trained retriever for hunting!

In the Central Region we have 5 NAHRA clubs located in Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin.  We usually hold anywhere from 12-20 tests per year.  The regular testing season starts in April and ends in August or early September, just in time to begin the hunting season.  After this we regularly host NAHRA’s new pilot Upland Retriever Program tests.

Please take a look at the list of clubs and events in the Central Region. We look forward to seeing you at one of our events soon!
