    ps -- the reason we "always" run multiple blinds with young guys is because if they fudge one up, you have 2-4 more that you can use to recover and help them learn. This even often goes for older dogs. You want to be able to reinforce the concept and see if they learned what you were just showing them in the first blind. So if you stop there... You are missing an opportunity for repetition and learning ESPECIALLY when teaching factors...

    I have access to some 800 yd wide fields in the winter. The cover is cut corn or clover(deer bait). I'll run em as far as I can see em in these fields 400-450 yds and my eyes start to get fuzzy even with field glasses. I also like to set up combination diversion drills in these fields. Needless to say I don't do this stuff on days where the temp can be a factor.

    There is a bean field across the street from where I teach. I look at it everyday trying to picture different blinds. It should be picked in a few weeks! It's one of the very few places around here that actually have a few small slopes!
