About The Fall Grand
The Fall Grand is one of two semiannual International Grand Hunts conducted by the Hunting Retriever Club, Inc. International Grand Hunt Committee at selected host HRC Club locations. This hunt test is for Hunting Retriever Champions (HRCH). It duplicates actual hunting conditions found throughout the country. The successful completion of two of these Grand tests will qualify a Hunting Retriever Champion for the UKC title of Grand Hunting Retriever Champion (GRHRCH).
