    Default Ever run...

    Ever run a field trial or hunt test in a uncut hay field 3 feet plus tall? If so, what are your thoughts?

    Everyone will know it was a bad idea when a dog dies and can't be found.
    KARMA - The return on your entries will increase the sooner you decide to contribute one of your weekends to be in the judge's chair and judge others who have done the same for you.

    What he said. But as a handler as the dog pops out on the way back you turn to the judges and say " All right pinned all three"

    To tall grass and your question add hotter in tall grass as no air circulates then sloping downhill so its even more difficult then a lot of seeds in the eyes and nose.

    Been there, seen that, always scrapped, and you are hoping its scrapped before you have to make a decision

    Now we're not talking a point of cover, you mean the whole field

    Yes and was not happy about it especially for the level of dogs that were having to run in it.
