    Default Rowdy (by Pirate) Disciplined Casting and Misc

    Rowdy doing disciplined casting. Normally I would do more freebies in between but shortened up for the video. I thought he was going to switch on the right over but he didn't. Dang, tale of the tape, I wasn't paying enough attention to Rowdy's spine alignment. The looks to the left were the noise from a lawn maintenance crew. Can you believe cutting grass in Jan. The house is vacant and for sale so I guess they are concerned about curb appeal. I will probably do one more session of disciplined casting and move on to pattern blinds. Swimby will have to wait for warmer weather.


    Some odds and ends of things I have been intending to do. Hay bale, duck call, goose call, decoys, shotgun, honor in hunting situation. I started honoring with Rowdy two sessions ago. But also wanted to do it in a hunting situation. Rowdy on the left and Shadow on the right.

    Welcome back Wayne! Are you concerned at all that Rowdy is anticipating the stops? I guess it does not matter as long as it is only on the return, but I have one that has a real problem with hesitating or spinning if we do too many stops on the way, even without any pressure.

    Any constructive critism is always welcome. Except for my goose calling, LOL. 2Tall, I am not terribly concerned about the slow return or anticipating the stops as long as it doesn't happen on the way out. I think the slow returns will disappear when I get through yard work.

    I did some simple sight blinds yesterday in the field and the ground speed on return was similar to marks.
