What's happening up in Maryland?

I am sure the Open has completed the water blind, but I do not know for sure. The following dogs were called back following the land blind: 1,3,6,16,25,28,31,34,42,43, 52,53, 55,57, 61, 66. 16 dogs in total (out of 72 entered), 10 or 11 handled by Alan Pleasant. Fortunately the honor was done in the first. The land blind was very challenging and most dogs picked up. There was a dry pop from a heavily scented gun holder to the right of the line a couple of hundred yards away. After firing, the gunner "retired" to a position 20+ yards to the right where the dog would see him as soon as the dog approached the gun station. Wind was variable but seemed to be predominantly a crosswind blowing right to left so that the scents from the dry gun area were carried across the line.

Most dogs stopped at the gun and hunted the area. Straight back from the gun was a mound with an orange ribbon tied to the grass where a gun station had been located the prior day (I was told this and saw the ribbon, but was not there yesterday). That area also attracted big hunts. 10-15 yards past this mound there was another orange ribbon where I believe the thrown bird yesterday had landed. That too attracted big hunts. The combination pulled the dogs to the right and out of sight leading to most of the pickups. The most successful strategy appeared to be halting the dog before the area of tall growth ended and giving the dog 1-2 big casts to the left of the line to keep it from stopping at the gun station and being drawn in by the scent. I watched about half the dogs run.

The qual completed the first two series before stopping at about 3:45. Dogs called back to the third series are: 1,4,5,8,9,12,17,21,22, 24,26, 27,29,34, 38,40 for a total of 16 out of 40 of which 38 started. The first series was a triple shot left gun, long gun retired, and right gun flyer. Angles were pretty wide open. The long retired was thrown down hill and almost straight toward the dog to land in a gully area. The blind was 2/3 of the way up the hill. If dogs hunted over the hill they found open water and were out of sight. The line to the long bird took dogs through a pond like depression surrounded on the right by high cover. Many dogs exited to the right of the line and some of those switched back to the AOF of the flyer. 24 dogs were called back following the first series. Call backs appeared to be very fair. I know this for a fact because they matched my own assessments.:D;-)

Jeff, by your description of the land blind, I'm curious how it worked under the influence of this Trial Procedure point in the Standard Procedure:


20. In stakes carrying championship points, and in a
Qualifying Stake there shall be at least one handling
test or blind retrieve—and preferably two, one on land
and one in water.
A diversionary bird or birds, (but not more than two)
may be used as a diversion in a blind retrieve, but only
if the diversionary bird (or birds) is/are thrown or shot
so that the running dog has a clear view of each such
diversionary bird as it is thrown or shot. No bird which
the running dog does not see may be placed and hidden
on the general path to a blind. Nothing in this provision
precludes the use of visible flyer crates, bagged
birds, placed at the location of previous gun stations, or
bird throwers as diversions from the blind.

The areas were scented but no birds were anywhere except at the blind, which was well past the scented areas.

Way to go Breck. It's great to see you, Katie and Vikki still playing along with the others. Best of luck in the 4th. Anyone have updates on the Q or Open?

Well, the Q is done, but I didn't get the results beyond the fact that Charlie DeMatteo received a second with his dog Kate (new QAA) and my dog Misty received a JAM, which was a welcome surprise after a marginal land blind. Congratulations to Denise, Charlie and Kate.

I want to give a huge congratulations to Mr. John Thomas who won the Open with Chevy. This win gives him his FC. So now he is FC-AFC Chevy. John also took a 3rd with our dog Cane in the Amateur. This is awesome news Chevy had just recovered from surgery. Alan Pleasant got 2nd in the Open with Bill Bookers Ozzie. Alan also took a 4th with Kippys FC-AFC Jauque. Don't know any other placements or Jams in the Open or Am.

....He got the RJ. He was in too deep a of a hole from his middle bird in the first to get anything better, dispite having a good "rest of the trial".

Sorry about that. I wasn't watching when he ran. His blind definitely stands as one of the best I have ever seen run in that field. I was hoping my girl would do the same, but she came out of the hole to the right instead. She recovered well, but that also kept her out of the colors.
