    Default Wood River- fall trial : Picabo ID

    weather this morning included intermittent showers, after a hard rain on Thurs evening

    the first series of the Open featured a LONG triple, thrown left to right, G1 and G2 both retired, G3 was the flyer..the middle bird is so long that the guns are almost out of sight..dog's are gassed after running the marks. Test is taking some time, lots of pick ups, dogs going backside of gunners

    judges : Alan Madsen and Cynthia Tallman

    all info is relayed second hand with spotty cell coverage/dropped calls

    the LONG land blind (350 yds) features a dry pop diversion where the dog has to shave the gunners nose with the initial line and carry that before it gets to heavy cover which it has to fight past before getting to the bird, a good solid test


    Someone lodged a protest about a "hot bitch" on the field but it sure as heck isnt our gal since she is an 8 yr old SPAYED female LOL..check her to your hearts content

    3rd series water blind had a poison bird, dog had to go over two different points and avoid getting lost in the cattails, which we did not do....it was a good solid fair test...

    Amateur going on now they are trying hard to get the first series in before the weather or darkness says they cant...rain is welcome just not this weekend...
