    Lightbulb What querky things do you do before running a FT or HT ?

    I heard one at a FT I was gunning at this week end. Want to see if it is posted cuz it was pretty off the wall.

    However mine is I feed my dog a little breakfast before, first thing in the morning. Because she ATE the whole duck in the first master test, the gunners prepared for her, (the second bird retrieved(flyer)) When the bird was shot Judge said "That was close". however forgot when a wing and foot was brought in by the gun.

    It is far easier to spit on the work of others than it is to produce something better yourself.

    You have to admit it IS funny though!

    Um lets see......Keep the same lead through the entire weekend. Even if it's going bad, don't ever change it. I also know another pro who always goes to the line with THE running order book in his back right pocket.

    He must not be a very successful pro. Everyone knows the the book needs to be in the back left pocket for the good mojo to work .

    In addition to having my book in the back left pocket, I always take a leak before I get my dog of the truck, whether I really need to or not.

    I would always whisper a secret in my dogs ear right before we headed to the line.
