Spaniels in the Field & Flushing Retrievers
Spaniels in the Field & Flushing Retrievers (SITFFR), is a not for profit 501(C)(3) foundation. Our goals are:
- To support and preserve all the traditional flushing gun dog breeds
- To support conservation efforts as they relate to preserving wild hunting space
- To foster a conservation ethic by educating the public, especially youth
- To pass our hunting heritage to the next generation
Our acronym "SITFFR" pronounced "sit far" provides a visual image of perhaps a great grandchild of your own, hunting afield, with a flushing retriever sitting by their best friend´s side, the two of them on the same quest. Apart they would fail woefully, but together they are formidable. We envision the flushing retriever of the future out pursuing natural, genetic instinct afield in a sustainable green environment.

WORLD-CLASS 3-day Argentina Dove Hunt for two hunters
WILD FOR THE CAUSE in partnership with FRONTERA WINGSHOOTING would like to offer the following donation for your fundraising efforts:
Located in Cordoba, Argentina, (the dove hunting capital of the world) Frontera Wingshooting offers hunters the ultimate dove hunting experience. Winning bidders will stay at the sophisticated and relaxing La Zenaida Lodge. La Zenaida is adjacent to one of the largest dove roosts in the Province. In fact, it’s the ONLY lodge in Cordoba just 80 steps from over 30 million doves. With such a high volume of doves in the area, it is typical for a hunter to shoot over 1000 shells each day. Frontera provides all hunters with a hot barrel experience you will not encounter anywhere else on the planet. The hunt is perfect for an avid wingshooter or beginner. Hospitality and personal service are the priority of the
highly trained Frontera Staff. Hunters will dine on five-star Argentine cuisine and have the opportunity to sample fine Argentine wine. This is truly the hunt and experience of a lifetime!
