    This is the coolest looking field ever. I bet that took some tractor time.
    These are field trials and the people involved largely don't understand a normal day much less a "normal days hunt".

    Looks like the aliens were 'in the sauce' when they made those crop-circles!

    If judges need a field like that to set up a good test...

    How sad judging at the national level has come....

    IMHO

    Dear,

    Do you realize who one of those judges is ? Have you ever seen a trial he has judged ?

    He's just avoiding Needle grass and Foxtails with that field.

    If the powers that would be would ever pull their heads out, the man should be judging on this side of the border some November.
    Discipline is no excuse for a lack of enthusiasm !!

    How is that not a trick test? Are we really testing marking with a setup like this?

    They look like marks to me in a interestingly cut field, longest bird 210 yards, shouldn't be a big deal for a national level FT dog? Stupid, really Angie B?
