Third series in the Derby is a long water double. Long bird is approx 300 yards.

I doubt if they have a fourth series!

Open is now doing a poison bird blind. Not sure about callbacks.

Derby was over about an hour ago. Three series. Only two dogs finished.

Congratulations to dog # 4 for first place and making the Derby list.

Dog #5 Firemark's Million Dollar Baby (Haley) took second and now has 13 points.

This thread will now become the official Judy and Becky love fest! :wink:

Now running a double blind with poison bird, then pick up the poison bird.

I believe Brian said the poison bird was in the middle of the two blinds. But not sure...I guess I wasn't paying that close of ear attention to his description.

Nice attempt at a twist, Russ! :lol:

I'm saying that if they only finished two dogs in a five bird Derby, then there were MORE THAN LIKELY only two dogs in that field really ready to run that Derby.

That is what I'm saying. I'll also say that you will NEVER see me set up a single as a SERIES in a 13 dog field.

NEVER. Write it down.

I'd almost be willing to bet that those judges would have LOVED to have thrown a four-series/eight-bird Derby.

There were only 10 starters and 7 went to the 3rd series.

Did they get any answers from the single.......no. Did they on the 2nd series double yes. The single/double scenerio did not conflict with each other. The single was on the east side of a grown over fence row and the double was on the west side angling away from the fence line.

The 3rd series double was a very nice double, but maybe a bit overkill for the field (if you wanted 4 placements). However, I thought there would have been a couple others finish.

Judy I think just the fact that it was approx. 300 yards with an
almost 200 yard swim for the memory bird was what Chris was referring to.

There were actually 11 starters, 8 labs, 2 goldens, 1 chessie.

3rd series was run off the middle of a dam in a triangle shaped pond which was very large with lots of stumps and old dead trees. The guy shot it with a range finder and thought that the long bird was close to 300 yards and the go bird was around 200. The go bird was an angle entry swim(75 yards) and up a hill, gunner was not visible till they got half way up the hill. That bird was thrown towards the long gun.

The long gunners were about 15 yards off a tree line, throwing up the hill and when you throw a hen mallard against the treeline it was difficult to see, the dogs had to take most of the water to be on line, the wind was blowing hard and pushing the dogs to the shore. Dogs had to swim past several flooded stumps, then exit and run at least 150 yards through brush and high grass without seeing the gunners, most dogs beached early got lost on the hill and ended up back at the old fall, of all things after the test dog picked up, a rooster pheasant walked between the go bird and the memory bird. That was not a factor it was a tough test and it separated the men from the girls, and the girls won!

KG, with all due respect, I disagree. My OPINION is that a test that results in elimination of all but 2 dogs in the THIRD series of a DERBY, didn't work out as well as anyone SHOULD have hoped. Hell, why not run a 4th and eliminate the last two so that the club doesn't have to pay for ANY ribbons. :twisted: Please don't take this as bashing the judges, things happen, but I would hope that even they wish there had been a different result.

On another note,
The undertone(or overtone) of a few posts in this thread is that the other dogs were not "worthy" to be there. To be clear, there were some fine dogs in the field. At least one has derby placements I believe. Its not fair to the other dogs, owners, and or handlers to make comments like that. Give all the credit in the world to the dogs that finished but please don't downplay the talent level of the ones that didn't. :wink:

Now I'm confused. Is it your OPINION :wink: that the judges should have scratched their third series before the last dog ran and "dumbed down" their water marks so more dogs could find the birds?

I'm not saying the dogs that did not finish were not quality dogs. Perhaps they just were not performing at their best on this particular day. I don't think that means judges need to simplify the test to award more placements. Points need to mean something.

03-18-2007, 01:37 PM
I have ran 3 derbies with my little girl, she has two 1st place finishes and a 2nd, in one of her wins only 3 dogs finished out of 26. I am more prouder of these 3 points than the previous 10, it was a hell of a test and it ate them up and spit them out.

Gassner are you talking about stats like, 100% of the chessies failed this derby, 88% of the Labs failed and only 50% of the goldens failed.

Hell, why not run a 4th and eliminate the last two so that the club doesn't have to pay for ANY ribbons.

My comment was that it was a great test to finish A trial with....I didn't say it was the one they should have finished THIS trial with. Since I wasn't in the chair, it's hard to say.

Your sarcastic point is well taken, but the judge's job is to test to the level of the field but make the points well earned. After a single and a double, they probably realized they could finish the trial with a strong test and let the chips fall where they may. And for the record, the ribbons are already paid for. I'm pretty sure Ron Batman would like to have awarded all of them if he could have.


The undertone(or overtone) of a few posts in this thread is that the other dogs were not "worthy" to be there. To be clear, there were some fine dogs in the field. At least one has derby placements I believe. Its not fair to the other dogs, owners, and or handlers to make comments like that. Give all the credit in the world to the dogs that finished but please don't downplay the talent level of the ones that didn't.

Since I feel called out here, I'll gladly explain my position.

First off, Russ...to say that one of the 13 dogs entered had Derby placements does nothing to legitimize the entry of the other 12. It's not a question of "worthiness." It's a question of being able or qualified. Any dog over six months old and under two can run in a Derby. The youngest dog entered in this event was a year old; the oldest will age out in three weeks. Seven of the 13 entered were out of untitled breedings; two are out of FC/AFC titled breedings on both sides; two are out of FC/AFC or FC sires; the dog that won was out of an NFC sire (ages out in July) and second went to a FC-sired dog with a MH dam (ages out in August). According to EE, nine were Labs with two Chessies and two Goldens. These are facts; infer what you want from them, but more interesting is the fact that only 10 started the trial. That's sort of unusual; 23% of the entries don't run, but only 13 are entered and 10 are needed to start in order to award RFTN derby points. I point all of this out to say that ON PAPER, this ain't the strongest Derby field I've ever seen in my life. Fact, not opinion. Just because a dog is entered, doesn't mean it's qualified. Which 10 started? We won't know 'til we see the results, I suppose. That may be very telling in itself.

Derbies run in cycles. One year, you'll have multiple dogs with multiple points in every trial. The next year, you have a hard time getting 10 starters so the points will count. Funny how we don't have any discussions like this when the entries are heavier and more qualified. :wink:

One last thing about that Derby....I understand a dog popped and handled in the second series of the Derby....dog popped, handler threw up an arm (no whistle), dog went to the bird. Judges called the dog back to the third series, giving the dog the benefit of the doubt for "confusion." Can anyone who was there clarify what happened so that we can get the straight skinny instead of someone's imagination running wild?

Great series description

Do those who were there consider the "description of the test", given on page 2, to be relatively accurate. . .in that as narrated, on the Go bird , the gunner was "retired" for 125yd of the 200yd mark—And that the Memory bird was a crosswind, cheatie, "retired in route", 300 yd hen Mallard... that was difficult to see because of a non-contrasting background?

Wow! I thought there might be some discussion about the little Tulsa derby, but never this. 10 eye witnesses will give you 10 different accounts. Here is mine:

11 dogs started.

The distance to the go bird is accurate. I shot it with a laser and the bird boy was 198 yards. Throw was angled back.

Distance to the memory bird is not accurate. I tried to shoot it with the laser but could not get a reading on the bird boy, so I shot the tree line behind them. The tree line was 378 yards (average reading), and I estimated that the memory bird was 30 yards or so in front of it. The throw may have been slightly angled back. My superior, but vastly eroded math skills, tell me the mark was about 350 yards.

Visibility of gunners from dog’s perspective: Go bird, I think, was visible most of the way, but there was most likely some distance at the end of the swim and exiting the water the dog could not see the gunner. However, I didn’t swim it, so I’m not certain.

Memory bird was probably out of sight for the middle half of the distance, possibly more. That means that about half of the swim (last half) the gunner was not visible. However, the go-bird gunner was very visible. Dogs had to know where they were going and be confident to get to the memory bird.

Visibility of birds: Go-bird, no problem. Memory bird – just what I would expect with a 350 yard mark – tough, but visible.

Cross wind: affirmative.

Cheaty memory bird…yes sir, buy only for about 80 yards of the swim. Sharp angle exit. The entry was not cheaty. Dogs that wanted to cheat and square the bank were channeled toward the go-bird gunner. Wind also pushed them that way.

Tough test, but no tougher than most that you see these days.

Huge congratulations to my friend and training partner Brian Freeland for WINNING the AM!!! He and Lottie ran a great trial and deserved the win.

Thanks everyone for the congrats on Piper’s win and derby list. She may be a NutCase, but the little girl can mark and has a big heart.

Also, congrats to Mike and Haley. That little golden is a force and one tough little girl dog marking machine.

1) 20% of the dogs finished the derby that's average in my opinion.

2) Gunner being out of sight(not retired) on the way to a derby mark is normal on land and water, as long as gunners are in plain sight at the line for both sends.

3) ignornant opinions from people with no experience in field trial judging , handling and training are what they are.

With all due respect, Paul, I don't think we want to get into quantitative percentages justification with regard to the number of "finishers" in a FT stake, especially in a minor stake. Will there always be exceptions? Sure....but those exceptions usually have a ready explanation.

1) 20% of the dogs finished the derby that's average in my opinion.

I hadn't thought of it this way. You are correct but I would be concerned if any judge
1. Planned ahead in a small entry that only x number of placements were going to be given.
2. Went into a trial planning on eliminating 80% of the dogs running.
This is pretty much the point of my earlier comment. I certainly don't think the judges WANTED to give only 2 placements when they set up the 3 series.

2) Gunner being out of sight(not retired) on the way to a derby mark is normal on land and water, as long as gunners are in plain sight at the line for both sends.
Did anyone complain about this?


3) ignornant opinions from people with no experience in field trial judging , handling and training are what they are.

Even IF anyone posting in this or the other thread fit your description(and I don't see anyone who does that I know of), I'm not sure how productive comments like yours are? Why not tell folks where you disagree with them? ESPECIALLY people with no experience, it seems could benifit from constructive discussion of the subject.



I got to tell it was sure nice to have a small trial. Thanks to all the workers, judges and handlers.
Is it true you were wearing a "Schraderite" hat? Cause if you were, that would be pretty funny.

Russ,

For the record there are not any current members of the Tulsa Retriever Club that are Schrader clients so you comments are out of date; secondly the opinions expressed concerning the derby are ignorant, uninformed or badly informed…not stupid….just ignorant. Lastly, if you have a burr under your saddle about the way the Tulsa Club conducted this trial pick up the damned phone and call Paul but this innuendo laced posting is bullshit

Remembering the good ole' days when the Tulsa trial was in Wagoner. The Midnight rodeo was just down the road. :wink:

Wow Patrick. Maybe you need to tell me where I have indicated any type of "burr" In fact, I'm not sre that you can find where I have said anything regarding the Tulsa club at all.
The Schrader comment: Gut said it, I then replied that I had heard the same thing from someone else(and more than one now). Then you and Paul seemed to get pissed about it, seems maybe it hit home and I still don't know why.
Lastly, please stop calling people ignorant unless you want to show what comments you are talking about?
Let me quote what I said for you:
"My OPINION is that a test that results in elimination of all but 2 dogs in the THIRD series of a DERBY, didn't work out as well as anyone SHOULD have hoped. "
Please show me where you disagree with this statement! Since you've now called me out twice, the first time right after I posted it.

Of course the FACT that he had the odds in his favor with a large percentage of the dogs running, some great dogs on his truck, and knows a thing or two about handling doesn't mean anything. :wink:

I'll answer, only a few of those hats in existance, none of the true SCHRADERETTE'S are sharing. As for Paul, he borrowed the hat to handle at the trial when he won, now he's not wanting to give it back since it's lucky for HIM.

03-19-2007, 03:39 PM
OK here's that hat story Ken. I borrowed the hat from Schrader right before i fan the open land blind at Sooner last fall. I went on to win that trial and would not give the hat back. I like to wear it when i see Schrader to remind him of that trial. If that makes me a "Schaderette" so be it . If Farmer , Eckett, Edwards, Roram, or Trott or any other good pro wants to loan me a hat before i run I'll glad to wear it. Have a good day, Paul

Well, Tom Vaughn in the Amateur used to be a Shraderette, (may still be) but I can GUARANTEE that no favor was shown Shrader Amateurs. They were dropped alongwith all the rest of us and a newcomer won the Am. (way to go Brian!).

Hate to throw even more water on that fire, Ken.

As for training on the grounds, they were like any pasture in most of Oklahoma. Go find one and train on it and you pretty much had the FT grounds. And I talked to the owner for about an hour. The grounds are used for pointing dog trials 90% of the time.

More H2O.... :)

Wow, I had no idea all of this was going on......and I was at the trial!!!! Very good trial first time I ever had a dog running in a trial and she went out in the first just like about 20 other dogs. Very nice grounds and very nice people.....good seeing you all down there!

On a side note those that said there would be plenty of room at Copan Lake to park....I call BS :D Pulled in there Friday night and there was no room at the inn ......after driving down back roads through people's yards we finally got to Lake Wa Sha She....lot better accomodations and not to far from the grounds! Lot of fun.

Congratz to Brian Freeland...nice guy and a nice dog!

See you all at the Cimmaron.

It is nice to get somewhere where there is wireless internet...been out of contact for a few days....did not know I would have to stay at the KOA Hilton though!!!!!

I don't think there was any disrespect given. In regards to the comments, one must know that Mr. Fowldaddy has put a hole through his hand with a firearm.

Hence the reason for attempted sarcasm.
