Paul is a retired mathematics educator from Minnesota. He lives in east-central Minnesota near the town of Isanti with his wife, Becky, and their two dogs, Ti and Cash. In the fall, Paul and his dogs hunt both upland game as well as waterfowl across Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Saskatchewan.
Paul has had Labrador Retrievers for the past 43 years, but until 11 years ago had never developed a finished retriever. He first joined the Four Points Retriever Club in 2010, and took his dog, Ti, to NAHRA GMHR (Grand Master Hunting Retriever) and MUR (Master Upland Retriever) titles. Ti has one NAHRA Invitational pass and over 500 NAHRA points. Ti has also earned an HRCH (Hunting Retriever Champion) and UH (Upland Hunter) titles from HRC, and an AKC MH (Master Hunter) title as well.
His 3-year-old dog, Cash, has already earned his NAHRA MHR, his HRC UH, as well as his AKC MH and is QA2 (placing 1st or 2nd in AKC Field Trials Qualified All Age Stakes). Cash needs one more pass to finish his NAHRA MUR and his HRC HRCH titles. Recently, Paul ran Cash in an SRS (Super Retriever Series) event placing 5th in the Amateur Division.
Paul is a NAHRA Hunt Test Judge, and currently serves as the NAHRA Central Region Director. He has been involved in representing NAHRA and FPRC at activities including Fetch-A-Cure at Game Fair, the NAHRA/Kinetic Dog Food booth at Pheasant Fest, the FPRC Representative to the GMHTA (Greater Minnesota Hunt Test Association), the Minnesota Governor’s Pheasant Hunting Opener, and many other outreach activities.
