I heard that the first series in the Open is an excellant test. Triple with two retired. My dog failed it, hunted for the long retired in some cover at 350 yards and the bird was at 400 yards.

Se le vie. :wink:

I'm no Cajun, just a transplanted Who Dat from New Orleans living in Cajunland! I realizes I typed it wrong, came back to correct it but, you beat me to it. :wink:

I have one of my duck hunting buddies handling him for the first time ever. I told him for the double land blind to; line him up straight, hang on, don't blink and keep your whistle in your mouth! :wink:

The Open is one tough son-of-a-gun. Great bird placement on both the marks and the blinds.

I think they might have called back all the dogs that got all the birds, no pencil whipping for sure.

It was a test typical of that routinely done in that section of the property, with a retired bird placed up a hill with a pond located midway along the true line to the bird. Divergence from the line to the retired bird causes most dogs to get lost, hunt short in the cover around the pond, or return to an old fall.

The test was a triple thrown: long right retired bird (2 people) thrown left to right, middle bird thrown right to left, flyer shot last left to right.

Am callbacks after double land blind (shown below): 1, 2, 7, 8, 11, 12, 17, 18, 21, 25, 27, 29, 31, 33, 34, 36, 40, 43, 46, 47, 48, 51

The perspective is off in the picture since it was not taken directly in the line from the handler to the birds. One thing not clearly visible in the pictue is the dead log in the path to the long blind. Covered by berry vines and wild rose, that deadfall caused the dogs to go either right (usually) or left off line with the result that the end of the long blind was very "interesting" for most handlers.

Thanks for the photos and layout of the Am!
Any chance of posting a photo of the water blind
before they get too deep into it? That way I can stratergize
with someone running it via cell phone. :wink:
Oh, and wind direction would help too. :)
Thanks and
Merci Beau Coupe de Ville.
