    I had to zoom out otherwise I would give away my hunting spots because they are marked on Google Maps and I can't turn them off otherwise I lose them.

    NAHRA Field test, senior. your driving your truck down the road and see ducks. you stop and get out of truck. that is your story of how you got the handler to the pink running line. Ducks go down 1, 2, 3. Live shot bird is #3 out into the "cut corn??" You pick up the birds. Then you get back in yout truck and drive away = handler walks down the road. then from in back your brothers, third wifes oldest son from her first husband, who got out of the truck with you drops one more bird. That is the shot que. So you and Rover run a blind retrieve cross running lines and near the live bird fall area. Wind is a wee little breeze blowing from fall #1 to fall #3


    We did something almost identical to this 2 weeks ago to help my buddy and his dog prepare for the AKC Master National! Nearly identical line and marks!

    is it swimming or lunging water up in the back of those points?

    Here's a triple:

    First bird down is the long one on the right, which looks like it would land on a hill, retired. Wind would influence the dog to the left, perhaps into the flyer, which would go down second. Go bird is thrown inward, of course, the thrower would need to stand in view of the dog (not behind the tree).
