    Default Minot, N. D. Field Trial

    Looks like 85 Open dogs and 18 Derby dogs. Don't know the Amateur or Q numbers. We're dog #40 and they have us listed as Boofy Raider.

    I understand that the weather is predicted to be lousey. Mid 70 degrees and sunshine. Terrible duck weather!
    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    Be thankful they didn't print your dog's name as "Goofy Raider"! I always have trouble with one of my girls Dam's name--no one seems to be able to spell 'Kestrel' correctly.
    Hey, that's nice weather for ducks that want to sunbathe!! Does anyone know how many are in the Q?

    Thats what the weather was like last Oct. when i was up there. Gave up on the ducks and hunted phesants, sharptails and huns,had a blast. It snowed the next weekend and the ducks and geese were pushed in from Canada.

    Good luck to Boofy Raider. Hey Boofy with 18 dogs running the Derby it would have been a good time to break out your young Boofy.

    Good luck to Suzanne and her dog this weekend. Also to Steve who has a Derby dog running. I've always wanted a Kestrel for a pet. I love to watch them hunt in the wintertime when I'm killing time in a deerstand.

    Gene, I wish Shot was ready but he is still a bit immature. At 16 months and being a bigger yellow dog, he's just not ready to win a Derby, yet. Maybe in a couple of weeks.

    Thank you--hope all on the list do well this weekend! It's a much smaller Q than last week. I have two girls running--they can't seem to get together and ever finish a trial together--how cool would that be if they did!! Butterflies are starting already--you'd think after almost 40 yrs off and on, of playing this game, they'd go away.

    I was hoping Raider would make it throught the first series of the Open. Didn't happen. Too much test for a youngster. Nice set of marks I understand. Flyer down last as the deep bird. Two shorter birds with the line to the flyer just downwind of the first bird down. We'll try it again in three weeks. Booty made it through the first series of the Open in great shape. Go girl!

    Maybe Kyle will post some photos from the trial.

    I got a voice message that Chef got a derby JAM. He was running a good trial, but backsided the long gun on the last series. I didn't hear any results.

    Updated - He actually hooked a gun on the land (not that it matters).

    Christian Curtis' dog Slick got 4th.
