16 back to the land blind in the Q... first serious was TOUGH.

I guess it was one serious series.
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 call backs after the land marks, 27 dogs:

1. 2. 3 Rocket-Man to the Moon, 4, 7, 8, 11, 12, 17, 18, 21, 25, 27,29,31,
33, 34, 35, 36, 38, 40, 42, 43, 46, 47, 48, 51.

No news on the Qual or Open.
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.
