    Default Test dog Hunt Test Senior Bong Roadkill

    Stan thanks for running test dog for us in the Senior the first hunt test in the State of Wisconsin Saturday. First dog wouldn't get wet you showed them it is a water blind and got enough water! When I put decoys out had to break ice on the water's edge.

    Yes, nice job by Stan and Elvis on the blinds.

    The judges set up a fun and challenging senior test with savvy consideration to the cold conditions.


    I think we were all done by 11 AM.

    Very good test.

    There was a bit of skim ice on the edges of the shallow ponds, but not enough to be considered a safety hazard. I believe most of the ice was broken up by wave action from the test dog. "Elvis" makes quite a wake!

    Thanks again for judging Earl.

    My father in law filmed my pup running the test. I'll see if I can figure out a way to get the video's from him and post them on here.
