I recently bought some wingers and have been training on a field that is ~200 yds long and 200 yds wide flat no cover. Its basically in the middle of a neighborhood so short trees and wood fences in the background. I have been running marks from the wingers (with stick men in front) anywhere from 100 yds to 175 yds.
It seems like anything greater than 130 yards it become very difficult for them to see it. My female has been running these distance with no problem and it seems like on these grounds its just hard to see the marks? I have tried sunny days with the sun in all kind of positions and overcast days all with the same result.
The only benefit is they are pretty much learning to run to the gunner without really seeing the bird. But I am really just try to build confidence and build a double.
Any thoughts on how to make this better? Or is this just a bad spot?
