    RN has been good about describing tests. If it isn't listed as a flyer, there probably isn't one. Neither is there one in Eagles Nest.

    No flyer at Oops I Did It Again either. As Tom said the set up descriptions have been accurate.

    Average distance for flyer in all MN Series is 68.3 yards
    Average distance of all marks in all MN series is 83.5 yards Shortest is 40 in Oh No MR Bill(live flyer), Censored(live flyer) and in Oops I did it again (Go bird not a live flyer)Longest marks are 130yd and 123 yards(live flyer) both in Double Trouble.
    Average land blind distance is 115 yards, longest is 165 yards at Double Trouble shortest is 87yd at Oh No MR Bill
    Average water blind distance is 91 yards, Longest is 123yd in Censored, Shortest is 68yd in Oh No Mr Bill

    Double Trouble is the only series in the MN that has distances longer than I have seen in a weekend test.

    As in any test diagram, it's a lot different on the line. For example: Butterfly slots. The last portion of the blind is actually down a narrow 30 yd "tunnel" of trees. There is a drop off of 1-2 ft on the left side of that tunnel. Additionally, you have three sets of bird boys/stations on each side of that tunnel, one for each mark and one for the blind. Some broke down on the blind due to that scent. Many dogs when sent for the mark on the right missed it and got caught up in the bird station scent, or in the blind scent, which was 20 yds deep of the mark.

    Karen,
    Annie should be good to carry to the 4th. Rose is on the ropes. Hoping for good enough.
