I have completed the Double T and transitioned to Pattern Blinds with my 1 yr old. (Following Lardy program/ flow chart) I have established 3 separate blinds on property with good separation. The three leg blinds are left 105 yd.; middle 112 yd.; and right 96 yd. I taught first left leg and ran several days starting at 40 yd. and working back to the line stated above, then taught right and middle with same progression over several days. He is taking/remembering the line, but has a slight bow when taking the line to left blind (the grounds do slope down to the rt.) . I transition to front of property to establish two new pattern blinds and ran for two days, he remembers the blind but the bow is more significant on this one approx. 150 yd. Could it be the distance is causing and need to get closer and run for few days before backing the line up? I also noticed he does not "Lock Head In" when I que dead bird. Will this come with age and attrition?
I am trying to locate different pattern blind locations and run before going to cold blinds. Your thoughts!
