23rd Trofeo Angelo Massimino

Civita Castellana

16/17/18/19th December 2011.

 

Despite a very busy year the attraction of this pre- Christmas Spinone-Fest with the promise of excellent companionship with Spinonisti and Bracconisti  at the 23rd Trofeo Angelo Massimino at Civita Castellana, just north of Rome, was impossible to resist. So once again dogs were selected, Sanjika Kamuzu, Davidensis Silver, Sanjika Nyasa for the trials and Sanjika Jalawe along for experience. Travel plans were made and the van was loaded.

 

 

 

 On this trip Pete Guest who had previously attended the event with Stuart had signed up once again to join the fun!

As with previous occasions we travelled to Italy some time before the event to allow the dogs time to ‘acclimatise’. There are a variety of unfamiliar scents in good old Italia which need to be investigated before the trials so you don’t end up with a dog more interested in porcupine or wild boar scent than the birds they should be seeking.

A days hunting in the hills near Lake Trasimeno, Umbria with Stefano and Ezio and eight Spinoni  is a fantastic way to acclimatise and see how dogs treat the ground.

And what can an Englishman bring to a picnic? Well of course English type rain and an umbrella. (Of course I don’t wear my bowler hat for hunting J).

Only a dusting of snow this year at our mountain base so no need for snow chains. Pete was quite happy as on his previous visit we had managed to get stuck!

The gun in place, Stuart clicks his fingers as a command to flush the bird. The gun misses the bird!!! The retrieve is assessed later by a dead bird being thrown and a shot being fired.

Another find by Kamuzu. Stuart clicks his fingers to signal the dog to flush.

The bird falls unseen down the steep bank of a quarry but the dog takes direction from Stuart to the point of fall...
