Long retired was at noon position, 509 yards per range finder, thrown to the right along a wooded area and hip pocket to the middle retired. Early on, the sun was behind the long retired gun station and dogs had difficulty seeing the gun and there was no wind. Middle retired was a 1:00 position, 175 yards per range finder, thrown to the right with the biggest throw I have ever seen. Andy Curtis must have thrown that bird 40 feet and it had great hang time! The flyer was at 3:00 position, 175 yards shot angle back left. The dogs did better once the sun was higher and the wind picked up, IMO.

5 dogs did the water triple, momma/poppa (flyer) with momma retired and long gun up, without handling. Wind paid a significant factor in whether the dog blew through the short retired or checked down. CONGRATS to all! We had (IMO) very difficult blinds in this amateur, and nice marks.
Congrats to Rick Wilke and Flip--second in the Open and 4th in the AM!
