Am dogs to water blind, very tight to the shore, duck in a rat trap:


Just curious...

1) How many folks train using these?
2) When's the last time you saw one in a trial?

I think it's been 7 or 8 years since I have seen one.

Thanks for all the updates, Lynn and everyone.

Interesting question, Melanie. We don't train using a rat trap and I can't think of anyone we have trained with here in N. Calif. that do. Same as you, I have not seen one used at a trial for years. I don't think our club even has one in the equipment trailer. If judges asked for one, we would probably have to try to find one in a hurry. I wonder if Sacramento had one in their trailer or if one of the Am judges specifically brought one.

Am judges are Judy Powers and Marilyn Dahlheim.

in Wisconsin these would be common on water blinds in the water rather than on the shore.
We have the facilities to place birds out in the water rather than just on shore.

Now instructing the bird boy to row a boat and place the bird is another problem.

Also ever see a dog that couldn't get the bird off the trap or got tangled in the line not a nice situation

I have one in my training stuff somewhere. I put it in there when I saw a rat trap used in a NAHRA water blind. I've used it once or twice but it's been a looooong time.

I had never seen a rat trap used in a trial until last summer.

I don't know why, I think they can make a good blind.

Son of a gun. I asked hubby about rat traps.

We own one; he carries it in our truck all the time, but rarely uses it. He said that at least once, a club borrowed it to use at their trial for a water blind. Bird could not be planted on the shoreline, so the rat trap was used to hold the bird in the water.

Not to take away from this thread but I'm fairly new to this game and have no clue to the
"duck in a rat trap" bird placement.

Can anyone explain this as I have never seen it.

We have trained with them here in Maine. I have never (to my recollection) had one at trial.

One time, at West Thompson Dam, CT hunt test...we ran a land/water blind straight out into open water. Dog and handler were in holding blind while guns threw a duck or used a winger, not sure which now, to get the duck out there...not sure why they did not use a rat trap.

Line for the blind was about half way up a hill. ..dogs ran straight down, through some cover right at the shoreline...then out into open water. It was big open water, no island off the shore...

Some would not swim out...nothing out there to go to, probably never trained it.

(have to add, that our old guy "Andi" did the blind just fine)

I ran a Qual where we used a rat trap--about 4 yrs. ago or so. Used to have them on waterblinds all the time.

Actually, it was a line attached to an orange stake with the beak stuck into a shotgun shell. Very original per Verne Cooney, and working well.
Am callbacks:

several years ago roger reopelle chesapeake in qualifying blind picked up
the bird and brought the entire cement block anchor back. with i would
say at least 100 lbs of bottom weeds attached to it. the dog dragged it
i would say 120-yards to shore. slowest swim ever never quit it dislodged
on shore. ended up having to reset the blind it was a memorable moment
watching this powerful dog drag the whole bottom never gave up. fantastic
dog i believe correct me if i'm wrong but i belive the dogs name was chase.
i think that weekend was when roger decided to purchase the dog from
a long time friends widow...

Compose your list of all those things that are more important along with those that are less. Then, let's compare!

Likewise, I thought of you guys when we were doing our trial in Yuma. Hope all is well. I was hoping my young derby dog got some color this week in the trial. I do not know what his number was.

Very impressive especially the Qualifying win at 13 months of age.

Yes, that was quite a weekend for Guide and Steve -- a "Baby Double-Header" ... first in the Derby AND first in the Qual at the same trial at barely 13 mo.

Obviously, he can mark. But Steve is not just focusing on Derby marks. In training Guide runs all age marks and blinds.
