    Maybe a dumb question, but are the hay bails more for tricking dogs? We have trained around them before. Curious.
    Thanks, Brad

    Ok, Thanks. Didnt know if the weaving in and out of hay bales was to trick the dogs.
    Thanks, Brad

    Its part of the terrain and the judges definitely are glad the bales are there. They add something to the field and give the dogs something to think about for sure...

    Does it seem like there's a lot of no-birds this year? Maybe it's just me. Of course, a quad with a double flyer will have more no-birds than average.

    No... It seems they have a lot of them every year... Great throwers and strong birds.... Combined with some somewhat seasoned gunners... Ahem. JMO.

    Look at description on the blog. Then, if there is a picture, you can usually get a idea of the actual success by looking at the dog's tongue. This usually shows you how much they actually ran around. However, some dogs will heat quicker and I do have one. Thus, it is not always 100% accurate.

    Always the diplomat...

    Also, it may be a hay field but I would be shocked if those particular bales just happened to be right there when the judges showed up
