Never been to a field trial or AKC or UKC hunt test, and was just wondering what "typical" cover is for such an event. I mean, is it 12" high grass in a hayfield or 4' high weeds where you almost need a machine to get thru and a deer could bed down 5' from you and you would never see it? Or somewhere in between? I hope to get to some events this fall, but just wondering in the mean time.
It's still kind of hard for me to imagine 400-600 yard retrieves in any terrain, except maybe water (where the dog could see).
