my guess is that many potential open dogs are already qualified for the open the owners may opt out and save an entry fee here and there, or the pro wants as many dogs of his to qualify for the national so why enter another dog thats already qualified....just a theory , probably could get anyone to admit to it

I think that the primary factor influencing the trial size is the use of the Restricted Stake

Difficult triple with a nitty gritty short retired bird, 10 dogs did not handle, 17 back for double blind

Tim West
10-09-2009, 05:07 PM
My report is the Open test is an indented triple with a big punch bird. Indent is thrown short of a band of trees and dogs want to go hunt the trees instead of checking down. Pheasant flier is hard on the dogs also. I was told the test looked pretty benign until the dogs ran it and all hell broke loose.

I didn't get callbacks but heard about ten dogs did the test cleanly, my dog Jefe being one of them (yeah). So, it's getting them pretty good I guess.

Wet hen pheasants probably didn't help either.

Wet hen pheasants probably didn't help either.

they were fully feathered and dry, very good bird placement

Ed, I stand corrected, Since it rained like hell across most of the Country, I ASSUMED the hen pheasants would be wet. I did not mean to demean what I heard was a very good Open test and apologize to the judges if I inferred that wet birds were the reason dogs had trouble on the test. Wet or dry, hen pheasants make any test harder as you know, but from what I heard good bird placement was the real reason the Open test got answers.

It's alright my man. Don't be scared of mean ole' Ed.

If you want the birds to be wet then by golly them birds were wet.

In fact, I heard them darn things were wet and thrown in a gopher hole.

I heard it was a armidillo hole and each bird was blow dried before they were thrown.

Amateur, Triple with long retired bird about 250 up the gut through a field with various tree groupings. Line was elevated. Shorter bird left thrown left to right hip pocket to long bird, but plenty of room between the two. DRY hen pheasant flier on right. Great test with answers on every bird. Only 19 called back to land blind and only 11 called back to water blind tomorrow.

Cudo's to the N. Texas RC for putting on a fine trial. Lots of hard work put in by members who do most of the throwing, shooting and of course, the setups. Thanks for all ya do.

"Congratulations to alll, and especially to Lauren Hays and Slider on their Derby win! Lauren has worked hard with this very nice young dog, and it has paid off."


Ditto that, for a relatively new person to the game who primarily trains with a small training group with no formal training grounds other than city parks, etc, to come out and win against a fairly strong field is really something special.

Way to go Sugarbritches and Slider!
