If my memory serves me correctly, cell phone signals in the area of the state cattle ranch are HORRID.

We might not hear much until some folks actually leave the grounds.

Keith you may have never made a more TRUE Statement. The Cell Phone reception at the Cattle Ranch is pretty much 0.

Open has a quad. I doubt they finished first today

Cingular/bellsouth/AT&T works pretty well down there.

Verizon not so much.

AT&T works great, spoke with M Smith today, who is at the Mobile trial to let him know how things were going at the Port Arthur trial.

I got word from the horse's mouth in the Open, that the judges set up the land blind using the terraine of the land -- No tricks or poison birds, however there was a dry pop and the dogs had to run through or near the old falls of the land quad. the -- 12 dogs called back to the water blind. I do not have the numbers of the dogs that were called back. The dogs that got dropped were because of mutiple cast refusals. Most handlers picked up their dogs.

I just heard that the next 2 series of the Open will be a combination water double with a water blind. Long bird about 310 yards and a short flyer. Pick up the the first bird, do the blind then send dog for the second mark.

Having WATCHED the Open land blind, I saw several good jobs, several failures, and several pick ups. Going from 40 to 12, I can't say that I agree totally with Roger's assessment....but it is what it is.

Being at least 500 miles away from the trial, it is hard for me to discribe the land blind. I just had to rely on the source. It's much easier to know what's going on if you are actually watching the test. However, that being said, I was told that the wind and old falls played a big roll in the dogs quest for the blind. Apparently all the suction was to the right of the blind and the dogs that got dropped or picked up would not take a left handed cast. Again this is from what I had heard.

K G
03-16-2008, 10:15 AM
Roger, at least your source WAS in a unique position to see all the dogs.....

Open third series is a double blind.....short land blind followed by 200 or so yd in-out-and-back-in water blind..

Am water blind....running line on the side of a dike road....gunner just past end of dike pops and throws flat left first/bird lands in middle of road at 120 or so yds....2nd gun is 30 yds away to the right at bottom of dike just left of a corner of a lake/bird is thrown flat right....dog must hold SHARP angle to cut corner of water....this bird MUST be picked up first so it is NOT scored as a mark/first bird down acts a poison bird....after picking up short bird, dog is sent for blind which is planted 15 degrees left and 25 yds deeper of where the poison bird lands...line to blind is SHARP angle across dike road through through corner of second lake/60 or so yd swim with STRONG wind blowing left to right early that backed off considerably after 6-7 dogs ran....only two dogs left to run...

Your going to end up on Marv's approved list if you keep this up.

Keith is on the AKC APPROVED Judge's list. That is all ftretrieverjudge.net posts, their competitive record as an Approved judge.

Keith can have his moment of glory, I'm sure he has paid dearly for the privilege.

Thanks for the opening Paul, but i've given up arguing with someone where I would be unable to improve my dog knowledge. Unless I'm trying to get on their IGNORE list.
