    Default (HT Master Land/Water) What would you set up here?



    For those proficient at using Paint or other drawing programs, what would you set up here and why? Just looking for a different perspective on what I came up with for a land/water Master HT scenario here.

    Start with a long middle memory bird, then the left hand bird thrown from behind the tree in a well hidden blind. Bird lands on the bank. 3rd bird is a whiper/ flyer that splashes into the channel.... assuming we can shoot safely. Land blind across the deeper cover, through the trees and out into the mowed field.

    Sorry the picture shrunk on me for some reason...

    Shrinkage was a factor that day, oh the Joys of April training in Upstate NY. Interesting perspective. How do you feel most dogs would get to the Long bird?

    One interesting idea would be to put a winger on the dike between the ponds and throw a high throw to the opposite shore. With the winger on the dike, the tendency may be to hunt the near side (with the winger) ... to not ever cross over to the correct side of the pond. Run from the corner to the left of the house. This would test true marking rather than simply what the dog thought he saw.

    hard to judge distance, don't want to be to close to the road. You could run the opposite direction. Just my thoughts.

    I'd like to understand your bird placement on the marks, what were you thinking? What makes that a challenging test?
