    Join a club and work some of the field trials you attend on a regular basis and you should be able to get some training birds at the end of the trials, and meet people to train with who are successful at the game.

    Not trying to beat on ya Neil but you didn't say how deep you were in on original post. Hope with that kind of chedda its the FT game. Most water days I use 3" marking bumpers unless the Pt Arthur crew is training with me. Birds a couple times a week will keep them fresh.

    The option here is not about what to use...the option here is to show and somehow makes sense to the dog your are showing. You need to do that so that the dog understands from you from what you want him or her to do....What they retrieve is a matter of satisfaction to you, if done right....

    Raymond nothing meant by my post other than if I want to stay in the game I have to do it myself financially. I appreciate everything you all have directed to me, Neil
