The Innagural trial got off to a sudden stop due to the club trailer hauling the birds getting rear ended at high speeds by a pickup truck as they were pulling into the grounds! Half of the pheasants got loose and got away, which may have proved to be a omen.

Once the Open started at 10:30, dogs had one heck of a time scenting them in pasture grass with ragweed and a general lack of wind.

The test is a triple. Left bird was thrown against a dam and retired. Deep of that was the flier, out there about 175 or so and not altogether tight in line of the left bird. Then a short bird of 100 yards was to the right of those two. It was the go bird.

The fact that dogs were hunting on a 100 yard go bird tells the tale of how hard the hen pheasants were to find. The order was left, flier, right short bird. After the short bird was retrieved, handlers tried to dig out the left short retired with some success. After that they sent for the long pheasant, well ridden out into varying cover. Long hunts were the norm with pickups. I think all three birds were getting answers.

I would think the test will have to run through tomorrow since it's an 80 dog Open and they started so late.

Due to long hunts and the late start they will probably have 30 or so to run tomorrow morning in the Open.
When I left after about 30 dogs had run they were at about a 30% completion rate.

Qual was running their water marks and had 9 back. (Sorry no numbers)

Overall the club was doing fine excepting for the acccident. Thankfully there were no injuries and the birds are being delivered daily,so it could have been a lot worse.

Seemed to be plenty of help and good grounds.
The OK Ranch where the Qual was run is beautiful.

Amateur was a double. First bird thrown across the corner of a pond. Off to the right of that mark and about 20 yards deeper was the flier. Dogs had huns on both birds and there was nodody clean as a whistle as far as I know. 41 called back to the land blind, which is a double blind. After a dry pop go get a short blind on a little point of a pond. Second blind is only a few feet off the first, behind the point. Get dry and then cast back into the water, only a few feet off line of the first. Spotty work on the first ten or so dogs and most will finish in the morning when the water will be much cooler. Work should be worse I would think, as many dogs won't want to jump back into that water once they hit dry land.

Don't know what's going on in the open as I lost interest! But work got better this afternoon when the wind picked up. About 50% of the dogs called back today compared to 30% yesterday. They did a land blind but I don't know who or how many back.

Does anyone have the rest of the Open results-as well as the Derby?


10-28-2007, 08:45 PM
Miriam, I spoke to Chylo this evening and he said Mark Edwards won the derby and took 4th. I'm just hoping he won with Riggs. If he did, that would mean that Riggs has won 4 derbies in a row. By Mark's count. I had him, 3rd, win, and win. Then whatever he did this weekend. But Chylo said he talked to Mark and Mark said 3 wins in a row. I'm just hoping this weekend was the 4th win in a row. Mike

Edit....I have Riggs placements per EE....They are since 9-14

9-14 Jayhawk 3rd
9-21 Cimmaron 1st
9-28 South Loui. Jam
10-5 Lonestar 1st
10-12 North Tex 1st
10-26 South Cen 1st
11-2 Metro ??? Riggs will be I running against Seaside's Pelican Pete. Both of these dogs have unbelievable talent! I wish I could be there to watch this battle of the young heavyweights.
