Dick Moore Inducted into Bird Dog Hall of Fame
Dick Moore of Dallas Plantation recently returned from Grand Junction, Tennessee where he received a Lifetime Patrons Award at the Bird Dog Hall of Fame. The award ceremony is held once a year where individuals and dogs are inducted into the field trial hall of fame. Dick was nominated for this prestigious award by the Central Maine Spaniel Club. Dick has had a love of hunting dogs since childhood, but has always been partial to the English Springer Spaniel. Dick is a well known and respected field trial judge. Dick’s philosophy on judging, especially hunt tests, is: “I strive to create a pleasant, friendly environment for the handlers. They need to know I am there to help them learn. I promise no “gifts”, just a fair and balanced assessment of their dogs and their handling ability. Over time, seeing an improved working team is one of my most gratifying rewards.” Dick is a long time member of the Rangeley Region Guides’ & Sportsmen’s Association and currently serves on the board of directors. RRG&SA wishes to congratulate Dick on this well deserved honor.
