New Trial Grounds In Ohio...

As part of the negotiations between the Ohio Dept. of Natural Resources (ODNR) and the Associated Bird Dog Clubs of Ohio (ABDCO) over the status of field trial grounds in Ohio, the ODNR has offered a section of the Tri-Valley Wildlife Management Area to be used for field trialing. This is being offered in exchange for the loss of Killdeer Plains WMA in northwestern Ohio and Indian Creek WMA in southwestern Ohio, both which will be removed from approved field trial events next year.

Tri Valley WMA is a 16,200 acre parcel located in Muskingham County, which is central south east Ohio (directly east of Columbus). A map of the area is available at

Here are some pics of the proposed field trial grounds, offered courtesy of ABDCO...

(Note: please do NOT contact ODNR directly regarding the status of the trial grounds... negotiations are ongoing and sensitive; the ABDCO is the official contact. You may reach them for information at
