    At judging seminar, bending over the dog and letting whistles dangle over the dog's head was mentioned as probable bad form. Stick whistles inside your jacket maybe.

    Indeed... before I left TX I was attending a Lutheran Church on Sundays. I know all the farming families were praying for rain. In their defense, they didn't ask for wind and hail.

    Everyone in TX doing OK?

    I know there are many Retriever folks in TX and with all the horrible weather that passed through, I am hoping no one suffered any property or personal damages.

    It makes sense that you'd require MH title, but I didn't see it spelled out.

    And while we're at it... when is the cutoff for qualifications to count? Is it the end of January or end of Feb?

    Are we talking about some "school blinds" aka "single-point blinds"? If so, I don't see why a 200 yard blind at maybe 4 to 5 months old would be impossible. A lot depends upon terrain and so forth.

    Thanks Lyle. That gives me a phone number. I guess there is no web page or email at this point, but the phone number works fine. I’ll contact him when I get back to Nevada.
  17. Is Billy Sargenti in the Witness Protection Program

    I've used Google and I have also gone to PRTA's web page. I'm not very imaginative, maybe someone has better ideas about how to find his contact info.

    I think in other states, they've considered even domestically raised ducks "wild". HT and FT could arguably be referred to as "contests".
