The Open is a triple with two retired. The field is hilly with trees, rocks, and brush. First down is the shorter retired middle bird thrown right to left from in front of a cliff-like rock toward a lower rock with trees and brush around. The line to this mark goes uphill through brush. There is a gap in the trees under the arc that has appealed to some dogs while others want to climb the open hill backside of the gunner. There has been a variety of work on this mark. The second bird down is the long one on the left also thrown right to left into the left side of a tunnel-like gap in a grove of trees. There are heavy brush and more trees behind the mark and a wide open hillside to the left of the trees. In front of the line there is a row of short willows in a ditch to punch through, although some dogs have taken a wide open gap on the left rather than hold a straight line. Many dogs have hunted short on this long mark while others have been attracted by the open hillside and run long. There have been handles and pickups on this mark. The flyer is up a hill on the right shot right to left with some trees, rocks, and brush to negotiate to get there causing some hunts.
