    I hear 27 back to Water Blind in Open. Do not know numbers.

    The water blind is very long down channel hitting point on left and a point further down on right. There is a poison bird on the right. Double dry shot on front and you lose sight of dog on entry for a while. Very hard the whole way. This blind has very thing but the kitchen sink, but I've ask someone to look for it too.

    The judges only dropped one dog on land blind (pickup). Good for them. But, when your judging the Open, have 27 dogs back to the water blind, with Eckett and Farmer having a chunk of the dogs, it is time for desperate measures.

    Someone reported that the kitchen sink was indeed found in the water blind! Three dogs refused to enter the sink and were picked up by their handlers.

    8 back for a water quad, they ran seven, 5 pickups and 2 handles, they scrapped the test and will start again tomorrow, everyone thought it was a great test except the dogs, crazy judges?
