    Thanks for all of the advice. The test is OCT 6th... i will be sure to post about how it went! If it was a normal day, he would surely pass... but like everyone pointed out... with the distractions it is a whole new game!

    I just attended my first ever hunt test last werkend, and enterd my 10 month old pup in started, we passed sat and sun, and i had never attended one before. It was awesome, beware of the nerves, the will be peeking at the line, but go for it if ur pup can consistantly do 60 yard land and water retrieves, matbe a lil longer. Its awesome the cover at my test i went to was a just cut hayfield, so minimal.
    Train,Hunt,Enjoy

    Details - It was in Vienna, MD. When we arrived, my dog was OUT OF CONTROL on the leash... because he was so pumped up by the other dogs... walked him around a little, but him back in the truck, and went and watched the first couple of dogs...

    Brought him down when it was our turn for the land series. The first retrieve was about 50 yards in heavier cover. He did well, and brought it right back after a quick search. The 2nd was a live flyer, about 100+ yards... and our flier flew the wrong direction and was wounded at best when it fell after 5 shots... flapping... he picked it up and it flopped out after 10 yards but then got his grip and brought it back.

    About 1/2 the dogs got to the water series. He did the water series perfect!

    It was a great time and i was very please because it was not only my first time going to an event, but also my first time entering a dog and the dogs first time.

    THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL THE HELP AND ADVICE! We will be doing his next one on Nov 4th and hopefully finishing up his JH Title by the spring.

    "we" would slip the gunners a cold bier after the test for such. nobody wants a hard to find bird when your at the line. bet it put a bit of pucker in the trousers didn't it?

    Congrattulations! Glad you had a good time.
    When it stops being fun, I will find something else to do with my time and money.
