Rumor is Bearden and Bearden are throwing a delayed quad with two momas and poppas. Both fliers are shot into the test. You pick up one bird, run a land blind and then they throw the next moma and poppa. You then run the water blind. If you are called back from that, then you pick up the three remaining birds. Rumor is the test will take about a half hour if a dog does both blinds and finds the three birds. Should be done by Saturday and then they go to the water marks!

The first series was scrapped after 13-14 dogs ran. The new test is a triple. Long retired gun in hay bails. Short retired gun along a pond shoreline. Fluer shot hip pocket to short retired gun.

The word i just heard is that the dogs are smacking the new test. I do not envy the judges!

Question : when a test is scrapped, do they start back at the first dog or take up where they left off when the test was stopped..

I guess 36 smacked it better than the rest. They obviously wanted to get at or near a certain number and took that many to the next series.

20 going to the water blind after a double land blind.

AM first series was a very nice triple with a mixed bag. Thrown middle retired, 250 yrds from left to right; right mark at 125 yrds, also retired; and left flyer at 200 yrds in heavy cover. Middle and right marks were well placed with tight lines.

Qual first/second was a brutal triple. Very nice and very tough. Middle mark was 280 yrds with gunner in big patch of cover throwing left to right, right mark was thrown right to left in a pothole pond at 225 yrds, and left flyer was 50 yrds thrown right to left. Blind was by invitation, behind flyer crates, angle through a big patch of cover and drive slightly up hill between hay line and a round bale. Blind was approx. 325 yrds. Both the marks and blind ate up dogs. 15 back to water blind. Water blind was short, very tight water entry in running water and across a point, then in to swimming water with right to left crosswind, through a big strip of cover in water, then exit water and go 40 yrds to blind. The blind was approx. 175 yrds. 11 back to 4th, begins at 9 am. Qual has been very challenging, requiring great marking skills and solid control on the blinds.

Derby ended yesterday, Martha Russell won with Tubby. Congrats Martha!
