    It still amazes me, after as many years that I've read this story when you post it, that it still gets to me about halfway into the story.

    Thank you for continuing to share.

    Merry Christmas...

    Do you identify one key mark, and build around that? Or identify several good marks and try to make them work together?

    I disagree with this. I think with the current format, you get out of it what you put into it (as well as who you apprentice with). Also, you need to have a clear idea of what are you actually...

    It's my understanding that the MARC event follows the same rotation as the MN, just off by two years. So yes, after Montana, the Master Amateur should be somewhere in the Pacific time zone.

    Hard to give a one-size-fits-all answer, with many factors affecting pups development (different dams, different environments at breeders, etc.).

    However, with that said, I can tell you about my...

    I have very limited experience with field trials, so cannot speak from a field trial perspective, but certainly agree with the training comments, which I think apply to hunt test training as well...

    There was one thing my breeder did, that I noticed when I picked up my last pup. They had a large area in their basement for the puppy pen. It was 10x15, and shaped like a snowman. The "head" of...

    When you say "here/heel are too much for him", what do you mean? That the adjustments he makes are too big?

    I agree with Tobias. I think of it as an adjustment, like on my Dogtra controller. ...

    Totally agree. Have been waiting for this year's copy. Have read it for years, but I know it will still get to me.

    So, while I would definitely consider Terry to be wealthy in some regards, I would agree that he's not "well heeled", as evidenced by how many uses he squeezes out of his flyers (uck!).

    And I...

    Terry...let me see...

    You have two really nice dogs. You get to do what you love, as much as you want to. And you've got kids that love and support you, and grandkids. Grandkids.

    Sounds like...

    I definitely agree with what Hunt 'em Up said in post #7. It's a journey. You've gotten three passes, so you're over the hump of your first Master pass. Don't underestimate that. Figure out what...

    Hey! I paid good money for that stuff! It didn't seem to make much difference, but they told me I was applying it incorrectly and so I bought some more.

    Yes. At the tests I've been to in Oregon/Washington, it's typical to get a live flyer in the first series. Saw one test where they shot a flyer in the first and second series.

    Jeff,

    Very sad news indeed. I will give my boys an extra hug tonight and think of Purdy. Fifteen is a great run, but even at that, it's never enough.

    Jen,

    I was gunning for Senior on Saturday and remember watching your dog run. He did a really nice job. Didn't see him on the water, though.

    How did the weekend go? Did you see what you...

    It funny that you are mentioning that about Corning, because that is where I experienced the worst weather I've seen at a hunt test, back in 2010. It poured non-stop, and was intermittently blowing...

    The other thing I would add is, a good training group is one of those things that you appreciate how good it was, after it's gone.

    I was in a good one. It imploded. People's priorities change. ...
