History of MWRC

The Muddy Waters Retriever Club is all about training working retrievers, versatile hunting dogs and having a good time.

The club got its start on the internet. In early 2002, Perry Stewart was looking for a club to join near Central Wisconsin to help with the training of his new retriever. There were no clubs within 100 miles of Central Wisconsin. He got in contact with Jim Esslinger on a Hunting Chat Forum, and they met together on a couple of occasions to train. Perry contacted Kevin McMahon, and Jim Contacted Paul Rheinschmidt and Will Minette on the forums to join their training sessions as each were also looking for a club or people to train with in Central Wisconsin. After a few months, word got out as the training group grew, thoughts turned to forming an official retriever club in the summer of 2002.

The club name originated from a bunch of duck hunting guys on the same chat forum tossing out ideas, the list was reduced to a few and voted on and the name became "The BackWater Retriever Club". After some searching we soon found out that the name was already taken by another club, so we switched it shortly thereafter to the second most popular name, the Muddy Waters Retriever Club.

Thursday nights through the summer: Training at the Mead. Check our Facebook page for daily information.
