    Default Winter Training in the Desert

    Made the trip to Brawley Calif, just south of the Salton Sea to throw marks for Don Remien, yesterday there was a constant 20mph breeze from the north so we ran land marks all day
    Must have thrown about 30+ marks and honestly only messed up one throw ,since the trial is this weekend we shot a live flyer and were able to throw triples and quads while Don and his training group handled their dogs
    Don has a couple of FC's on his truck and the other young dogs all marked very well on our set ups, it was refreshing to watch some speedy retrieves and some laser pinpoint marking
    The sun will be up in the next 30 minutes so we are going to do water work today,gonna be a long day,will try and add pics and commentary as time permits

    If you have ever wondered where the doves migrate to in the winter, one of the spots has to be here in Brawley, they are here by the hundreds at the campground alone and near the cow pens, no ducks or geese , I think they are at the refuge at Wister or the Salton Ses

    Now it's getting warm, already down to T shirts and sunscreen, headed to water marks after they get finished running the land blind with a keyhole entry

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    That's who these people are , was wondering why they asked where I got my Kenai River hat from

    Someone suggested via pm that I ask Don if he uses TRT or SW, I have already been threatened with being banished from the training group
