1st series was an indented triple with 2 retired. Yes, 2 retired. Then run the land blind.

I ran test dog with my dog Ida. The indent gunner was not formally retired at that time. However, the gunner's chair was in the shadow of a large round hay bale such that essentially the seated gunner was retired.

As the day progressed and the sun headed west, the gunner's chair would become clearly visible. IMHO, the judges decided to retire the middle gun in order to create a level playing field -- the later dogs would not have an advantage over the earlier dogs because of the seated gunner becoming increasingly more visible as the day progressed.

Also in my opinion, the indent bird was more of a problem because of it being a check down from the flyer, then because of it being retired.

The long retired gun was a problem for almost all of the dogs because all of the factors were in concert and enticed the dogs to give in to the factors rather than go to area of the fall -- excellent bird placement by the judges.

AM first series was a fairly wide triple with long marks -- flyer being the shortest at about 200 yards and two retire guns. Hen pheasants for all marks. Many no birds. The field had many, many large round hay bales. With the possible exception of a couple of flyers, the hay bales prevented a "straight as an arrow" path to the marks.

Second series will be a land blind in the same field as first series and starts at 8 am Eastern DAYLIGHT SAVINGS time. Don't forget to set you clocks forward -- Spring forward, one hour.

39 CALL BACKS to second series -- hopefully no typos:

1, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 18, 19, 21, 22, 23, 25, 26, 27, 29, 32, 33, 34, 36, 38, 39, 40, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 49, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56.

I called Weezer..... he was getting a back rub, and had a little ice cream. I hear he's getting a brand new bone tomorrow! :D

Ha! So true Howard! But a thrill nonetheless.

Bob was pretty tickled earlier today when we talked about the open win....but I have to say that when Bob called me this afternoon right after he got the am results, he sounded half stunned and a whole lot of elated. Its fun to hear someone talking to you through what is obviously a huge smile!

As you noted, of course its not the same as being there myself, but.... I did a pretty fair job of living vicariously through Bob and Weez's grand success....my neighbor from 8 acres away said she heard me whooping it up while in my yard when I got Bobs call this afternoon.

I had the opportunity to watch and compete with Bob and Wheezer in the Open, he laid down an almost perfect set of marks on Friday in the heavy cross wind, and 2 retired gunners that were extremely hard for the dogs to pick out against the wood line, and then stay focused on the birds. He was 1 of only maybe 4-5 on Friday that had A Marks. His blinds were great, and he had a excellent last series. They make a perfect team!
Congratulations Bob and Wheezer!
