    I mostly agree. One of the basic tenets of judging a blind is you don't count whistles you judge the line.

    But still I think I am getting a feel for how the work is. How accurate that feeling is? Is mostly in doubt.

    Nonetheless, I am very grateful for the work and the reporting by team RETRIEVERNEWS.

    Knowing a few of the excellent dogs having difficulty getting into the second piece of water it must be a big ol' out to sea picture the dogs are getting or there's a big ol' cotton mouth sunnin' over there.

    Entry into big pond is a shoreline curving to the right( away from "big water").; difficult angle to enter that piece of water. It is EZ for dog to make progress away from water. Hence the large number of whistles in that spot.

    I figured that much .....and again, I realize it is hard to report....

    Right OK I think I found the blind. easy for dogs to exit stage right after "land bridge".
    This pic is "my guess" of the blind. Older image so work may have been done to the grounds and the point or whatever but think that's the mound and land bridge.
