Open is getting ready to get started. They had to switch fields due to to many staab's? in the field??? I asked "stub's" and was informed it was not stub's that stub's were something else!

Must be a Southern Thing Regards,

A staub is a sharp stick Aaron ;) Like when you bushhog a field and it has too much woody growth.

I know the field well. That's honeysuckle (I believe it's called) and it's in patches all over the field. If you cut it, it becomes even more dangerous and also spreads. I'm not certain how they're going to get rid of the stuff.

We tried to use the field for a Senior Hunter a year ago and had to move.

Thank you Kevin for the clarification! That is what I thought it was, I said a stub and this fine southern pro said no a staaaaaab? Thought I was just needing a translator for the phone call! lol

Up North we call em stubs regards,

my phone source said it was the cherokee rose bushes that have been
sprayed and cut were the culprit, but still can punture a dog's pad
good luck to all this weekend

The first Open set up was scrapped before a test dog ran when a pro advised that he had tried to train in the field recently and had given up after the third flat tire on the ATV getting set up. The field apparently had a lot of Cherokee Rose that was partially hidden by high grass cover.

A second test was set up and the test dog was called when again handlers pointed out that the field had a significant number of stabs. For the Vietnam vets think pungi sticks. Judges punted again and moved.

The first dog ran the third setup about 12:30 local time. Triple with two retired. Long bird on left thrown left. Flyer middle bird shot to the right. Right bird is shortest thrown sharp angle back left along a row of maze. The order is left, right and flyer. Test is set facing south so guns are back lighted so the long guns are especially difficult to see.

Too hot to sit out in the sun to watch so not much work info. Watched 3 dogs. One got the birds with biggie hunts, took ten minutes to complete the test. Next two picked up. BTW there is an honor.

Dog work was generally better in the mid to late afternoon with improved lighting conditions and some light wind.
