    Water is not on line but not far off. Dogs should take levee, many did, some cut the corner while on the levee. going straight to the water and fat is not the best place to be.

    Thanks for the clarification Mike, always good to have a knowledgeable on site person to sift
    through the narrative.

    So was this one of those run by water kind of blinds where water is off line that people say you don't need to train for?

    Not one of those run past water. Very good blind. I dont think any dog will be dropped for getting wet. those that went in fat will probably not have a happy face on the page.

    Yes agree and I like the pictures. Wish there was something on the setup; sketch, a pic or drawing or does that come later?
