    I like the way this guy thinks, but I don't see it.

    Now you are talking crazy talk. All you have to do is have the school prepare a report that nothing happened and you can get reinstated in a day's time. Right, Rev. Cecil Newton?

    It is pretty standard around here for the working dog handler to ask the honor dog handler if he is ready, but I have never heard of anything like what you describe. I think the answer, in a very...

    This. Or keep Mr. "Often Wrong but Never In Doubt" over there to the left from getting somewhere you don't want him. Don't let the pretty face fool you.

    The dog did not go to an area, establish a hunt, and then leave the area to hunt another fall. But that's the first definition of a switch. The other is dropping...

    You are undoubtedly OK with FSU at #2, so I guess it is the other 3 of the unprecedented 4 SEC West teams in the Top 5 that is giving you heartburn?

    See the poison bird thread for a time when I would stop and give a straight back for a momentum cast to try to get mine by the PB.

    I'll look for that split casting drill. Thanks for your help.

    Precisely the reason we are telling you what we are. My dog sits in the blind and shakes while he waits on birds.
