    Converging middle birds, looks tight on the diagram, interesting to see the time, with hunts could be 8-10 min/dog = 6-7 dogs per hour = all day and probably into tomorrow

    Looks like a mother...... if that wind direction is correct, anyone see a potential issue trying to get out to long pheasant hen?

    Looks like they could pick up the two middle birds in one pass ... that could save some time.

    Tight as a tick, as they say in East Texas. Perhaps the test will not be as tight as the diagram.

    Would that be marked as 2 excellent marks or would they rate one lower for lack of desire & running around the terrain?

    I think they would have to say "worked smarter, not harder"

    Marshal's notes say 12.5 minutes per dog.
    Competition does not build character - It reveals it.

    Both test dogs did the test. Sources say it will take 2 days at 4-5 dogs an hour.
