For you guys that have dogs that may not want to travel this season, but still want to get out and work some birds.
This is the way to keep your dog tuned up and keep your gun from getting lonely

Blanco,
I've never done anything like this but it sounds like it could be fun. Can you give me a little background as to what is required or how this thing works? How are points determined?

The basis of the game is very simple.
You will get 3 birds planted on a field aprox. 75X300 yds. You will not see where they are planted. You , your dog and a Judge show up at the start end of the field. You get 6 shotgun shells and 20 minutes time. Everything you do either gives or takes points.
The object is bag 3 birds as quick as possible.
If you have a pointer once the dog goes on a steady point, you call point and after a 3 count either you or the dog flushes the bird. shots cost points so you must be accurate. Once you shoot and hit a bird you must remain stationary and the dog must retrieve to hand. If you move, you get a partial retrieve (less Points than a full retrieve) When you bag the 3rd bird you call time. Any minutes less than 20 you have left count as points.
The dog can catch or trap birds also and they will count as shot birds, but it will also cost you 1 shotgun shell.
shells left out of the 6 are worth points.
So the point is be quick and be accurate.
Flushing is basically the same but no steady on point

Sounds like a LOT of fun!


Do you ever get the feeling you're being watched? Because if you do, I'll stop doing it.

By the time you have numerous plantings in the same field do the dogs scent old bird scent

Yes there will be extra bird scent. However most dogs will move on when there is no bird.
The bonus of having a later run is that there are usually leftover birds from previous runs, so finding a bird is usually not an issue.

I like the part about a caught bird. My female might do well in this. I'll know once I get her out into some birds this year (ugh).

I am in the process of making up an entry form, and will have it out soon.
Seems our pointing classes are going to fill up quick. We are going to limit each class to 30 dogs.
This is close the maximum number of runs we can do in one day.
30 Open pointing
30 Am Pointing
30 Open Flushing
30 Am Flushing
So a total of 120 runs... Some of which will be 2X runs

I don't have a dog yet, but would love to come out and watch. Are spectators welcome?

Spectators are welcome, but would have to stay a good distance back. Best way to watch is be a score keeper

This sounds about like a similar venue that Dodies dad put on in Anna back in November. Did any of you go to that trial?
