I saw the first few dogs in the opening series of the Open which was run from a hill. It was a wide open triple with two retired and a nearly 180 degree spread. The first bird down was on the left thrown left to right from a hill down in front of a line of sage in the valley. Next came the flyer shot left to right from a high mound in the middle down to the base. The third mark on the right was also thrown left to right from one sage bush to another and the gunner retired immediately. The two retired marks had lots of stands of sagebrush and mogul-like hills to negotiate to find the birds. About half of the dogs I saw were able to do the test in some fashion. The others got lost in the sage and were picked up or switched from the right hand mark to the flyer.

I heard that the line to the land blind ran behind the flyer crates, taking a piece of the mound.

I was told that they called back some handles from the first series so I think more than half were called back to the blind. At about 4:00 they still had a few dogs left to run after taking a brief break due to threatening weather. Sorry, that's all I know.

Amat Tests:

First series was a very nice triple. Not long marks, and very well placed birds.
First bird was the middle station, thrown left to right into some sage cover, and retired. It wasn't particularly long, maybe 150yds.
Second bird was very short to the right of the middle bird, fairly tight, along an edge of a small corn patch, short throw right to left, and retired. It was short, maybe 75yds.
The last bird down was a flyer, to the left of the middle bird shot right to left. You had to go through some sage brush if you were on line.

Most dogs got the flyer fine, and then tried the right short bird. If you blew by this bird (which many did), you often ended up not finding it or winding the middle bird. Dogs that got the short one, went to the middle and some hunted big hunts right of the bird. Some handles, and a lot of big hunts on

Placement of these birds was excellent, the judges used the wind and terrain to excellent advantage.

The land blind wasn't particularly long either, maybe 175yds. There was a dry pop with a hidden kid on a chair about half way on the left. You had to hold an initial line over a hump, through part of a corn field (which was disked), through some cover, cut a weed corner, go by the kid on a chair (which provide huge suction), and then up a small hill to the bird. Lots of dogs flared the weed corner, or sucked over to the kid on the chair. Also before you went up the short hill, there was suction in a small draw to the left. Wind was from left to right on this test.
Again this appeared to be a straightforward test, but it turned out to be extremely difficult for some dogs. Excellent test again by the judges.

Water blind starts today with dogs 21 dogs; 2, 3, 4, 5, 6,, 17, 18, 21, 23, 25, 30, 33, 34, 36, 39-43, 45, 47.
