The Open is a triple with two retired. First bird down is a long retired on the right thrown left to right with lots if terrain including rock cliffs and sage enroute. The second bird down is the flyer shot left to right in the middle. There are some rows of sage on the way to the bird. The last bird down is the shorter of the retired guns on the left thrown left to right up a hill, again with some rock and sage to negotiate. The marks are followed by an honor. The marks are fairly wide apart. Most if the dogs are getting the birds with the only difference being the straightness of the line and the degree of hunt. There has been a pickup and a couple of breaks so far.

Second series starts with dog 25.
I'm starting all over again because I keep getting a message that my token has expired and what I wrote wont post. Posting from an iPhone is not fun.
Land blind with poison bird thrown toward the line to the blind and crosswind blowing scent toward line to blind. Then pick up poison bird as a mark. Lots of dogs picked up the poison bird on the blind. Callbacks to third series tomorrow morning (18):
Starts with dog 50 tomorrow.
