    Default Design some qual blinds on this pond

    trying to decide if this piece of property is worth getting permission to train on or not (from a technical standpoint) its about 15 mins (country roads) away. i'd like to see the most blinds i could get out of it if possible (possible tune up and chinese drill maybe?). and if you want to be even more creative throw in a few marks as well. the tree at the top is due north if that has any influence with wind etc.

    from northern most tip to southern most tip is ~160 yards. and from the widest western part to the widest eastern part it is ~150 yards

    why in the blue blazes would a pond with 4 decent points and long land entries from all sides not be useful for both marks and blinds. get permission now and figure out how to use it later.

    It would work for up to master level training at least IMO. Not sure what you are training for though and couldn't tell you about field trial training as I haven't gotten there yet.

    Awesome looking piece of water. Get permission if you can.

    What are "qual blinds"? I know what you're thinking. But train for all age. Train beyond, above.

    also just google oklahoma end drive benton, ar and you should get the road right beside it

    don't get me wrong i immediately see multiple uses but i'm wondering can this be a 1-2 maybe even 3 days a week place.



    and i just wanted to see if anybody came up with anything different than i did

    here's what i've come up with so far blind wise

    the teal may be my favorite. knowing my dog that will take the longest to actually get right. that is to say stay wet all the way through no matter how close you are

    Take actual pictures from where you'd like to run a line (after you've got permission of course)
