    I have been to enough hunt test to see and hear the whining about a long blind all the time. Yes they do whine. I hear it...The rule are 125yds that's too long" Never, ever heard a whine from the field trial folks, ever. I also heard if training with hunt test guys. I'll put a blind 300 yds out and the whining starts, "this isn't a field trial why's the blind out there?"

I feel you train big so your dog is ready to encounter any situation. We had a guy that was in hunt group never did marks over 40 yds, well that dog checked down all day at 40 yards no matter the distance.
    I think that could play something in it. This morning, he didnt whine at all on the cripples but he did let out a bark once at the cripple as it started to move.

    BW, Corey is seeking feedback about real hunting.

    The only "whining" he's concerned with is that which his dog did when chasing the bird.

    Corey's post had nothing to do with hunt test or field trial. It is about real hunting.

    Corey, have fun. I promise you that for only your third hunt with your dog, he's having more success and action than lots of retrievers have when they get going!
