    Fiber considered a place for bacteria to grow by some. Why not wire? You get a much better finish with wire (you can't mechanical finish fiber very well). And you don't want a hand or broom finish...

    Can't use a pure random algorithm when handlers enter multiple dogs & you have to have reasonable separation in the running order. There are considerations for multiple dogs per handler, dogs...

    Shouldn't be any more difficult to coordinate than a FT with a 100 dog open & an 80 dog Am. Many of those 80 amateurs also run the open, it happens routinely. In fact some of the pros & amateurs...

    Actually the owner/handler Am rule was intended to stop the practice of an accomplished amateur handling dogs off a specific pro's truck in amateur stakes - said amateur being very successful in...

    It means I won't run a dog which I don't actually own both in letter & spirit of the rule in O/H designated stakes. That covers about 98% of those who actually handle and "own" dogs. The other 2%...

    When I was looking, Steiner Predator series 10 x 42 seemed the most competitive price of the high end, quality binoculars, best compromise on size, weight & warranty, etc. You can certainly get less...

    My FT dogs seem to see some groups before I do but I think it might be more of a peripheral ability than a distance ability. Also a flock is easier than a single bird & can be seem at farther...

    If you have a UKC registration & UKC-registered parents, I think AKC will provide a performance type registration but it will be limited to that dog & won't work for any pups unless they can be tied...

    Lots of info around which says dogs don't see bird sized objects beyond 350 yds. Maybe some do, maybe they see white flashes, etc so I understand your sentiment but you & I both know judges will...

    Don't know what internet service you have now but keep in mind that ATT residential service is very S-L-O-W unless you have a 50 Mbits type option which will be very $$ from ATT & you need to verify...

    Looked at them a couple of years ago. It's possible but not feasible. The intent of the electronic pistol is to have sound reach each runner at the same time so speakers are used to produce the...

    Not sure most dogs see 350yds+ marks, meaning actually see the bird. I think they see the white coat, see movement in one direction & hear a gun - that's what gets their ears up, feet dancing etc. ...

    No doubt the NEF variations (including the Days End pistol) & the GunX pistol are much more reliable than anything else currently available. I own a Days End primer pistol, NEF .22cal pistol & a...

    Don't think the Alpha 209 is worth the money. In the absence of the GunX pistol, I would just buy several of the $69 pistols like that shown in the link. You have to put up with the lack of a...

    Should clubs be able to target specific people & dogs they don't want to compete against? If not, there is no need for such restrictions. If so, those targeted should only be those operating...

    In my duck club we allow some bow deer hunting prior to duck season provided it doesn't disrupt or disturb use of the property by ducks. Only 2 of 6 guys do any deer hunting so it hasn't been a...
