The Minnesota Heartland ESS Club was established in 1991 by members of other Minnesota ESS field trial clubs who saw the need for an additional quality field trial ESS club in the Midwest Interclub. pheasant in field 

In the spring of 1991 the club put on its first fun trials, some in conjunction with other Minnesota clubs.  It is interesting to note that at some of the first fun trials put on by the MHESSC in Redwood Falls, Minnesota there were over 50 dogs entered in the fun trial open stake.
 In the fall of 1991 the club put on its first AKC sanctioned field trial.  Following that trial the AKC rep told the club; “You know what you are doing. There is no need for this club to do another sanctioned trial, your next AKC ESS field trial will be a licensed trial”.  With that auspicious start, the Minnesota Heartland ESS Club has conducted two quality ESS field trials each year (in the spring and fall) since the spring of 1992. In the past, the MN Heartland ESS Club has put on fun trials in the spring – following the field trial season.
