Field trials are much more enjoyable when you have a dog that’ll handle well and play the game. Got my first placement at a NSTRA amateur trial this weekend. Just have to work on a couple issues so we can beat those bearded dogs.
Notice the walking bird in the second pic.

3, check out the condition of the cover. The birds were limited on hiding places. Lots of them along fence rows at the OB markers

I've been to trials where they had to break up square hay bales.

Nice Mike! That low cover is kind of crazy, but easy for the pooches to cover it quickly, that's for sure. I have been bass tournament fishing of late, and the way the past couple of tourneys have gone, probably would have been better off running NSTRA.

You could get lucky depending on the time of the day.

I'm sure a lot of cover was lost due to the freeze.



Shopping with your husband is like hunting with the game warden.
Experience is what you get, when you didn't get what you wanted.

There is time, and you must take it, to lay your hand on your dog's head as you walk past him lying on the floor or on his settle, time to talk with him, to remember with him, time to please him, time you can't buy back once he's gone" GBE

At trial in Winters this weekend. First dog DQ, found 2 birds in first 4.5 minutes. But took them both out. Second dog runs brace 15 this afternoon. Hoping for better luck.
