    Thought I'd give the callbacks first since I know people are waiting. For those who might be interested, the Open first series was a triple with two retired. The judges initially set up a quad but, after the test dog, felt it would take too much time and dropped one of the marks. The line was overlooking a bowl with the marks around the rim. First bird down was the shortest on the right thrown right to left into an area of mixed cover patches. The line to that bird went down into a valley, up over a ridge, down into hidden heavy cover, and back up to mid-slope. Dogs that cheated the cover, came up either left or right of the line to the bird, some ending up high on the hill above the retired gunner. The second bird down was in the center, also thrown right to left from a tree line and slightly down slope in front of the tree line. The line to this mark was down into a valley, up over a ridge, back down near the edge of a small pond to the left, and up hill to the mark. Although there were some good marks on this bird, some dogs never made it over the rise and hunted short. Others entered the treeline near the gunner and spent time hunting there. The last bird down was the flyer shot left to right from an area of short cover into taller cover. This flyer was the longest mark by far but there was less terrain to cross with just a roll down hill and back up, encountering the distinct line of cover change near the fall.

    Am is a triple with 2 retired guns. Marks are thrown right, middle, left flyer. Right mark is 250 to 300 yards thrown left to right. There is very heavy cover on the way to the bird with a pond on both sides with heavy cattails surrounding them. Middle short retired is also thrown left to right and is around 75 yards. This mark lands in front of a small shrub. Left flyer is up on a slight hill about 125 yards. I m posting pics and video ony Facebook page Black Blizzard Retrieves.
