Field November 2012

Typically we don't have a huge # of posting in a week in the Hunt and Field section of the forum. So what if we change from weekly started threads to monthly started threads?

Works for me -- most of our "northern" friends don't do much field over the winter

Today was a quick train out at Lazy J -- didn't really have time but a friend asked me to come as he rarely gets off work in time to train in the afternoon.
Yesterday I had trained with Kristin and ran a rather simple channel blind. So today I backed way off the entrance of the channel, on a road, so now about a 35 yard entry to the water, had bird boy throw a poison bird off to the right, ran the blind. It blew Slater's mind! ended up walking halfway up and re-sending, he kept trying to go get the poison bird. Once I re-sent he suddenly remembered the blind and I think one-whistled it. I repeated the whole thing from full length and he lined the blind no problem then got his mark. We also did two long singles over two points, nice to have a thrower with a great arm to really heave the bumpers! Bumpers in short grass and Slater did a super job marking them. That's it!

As I said in the drill thread, we are running lots of them. I think I'm trying to build that picture library.
We are running, under the arc, backside of the winger, between two wingers, blind drills. Also long blinds, I'm always on the look out for that long looping whistle sit I still get occasionally.
We have been working on long shoreline blinds and big open water blinds. However, I let the training get a bit out of balance by running way more big water blinds. Last week we were running a shoreline blind and every time I casted away from shore she wanted to put herself out in the middle of the water. The pond we were training on is overflowing with water, due to a beaver dam at the outlet. It is very easy to take big water on it. Later that day, I was writting in my training log and really looked though it. I realized that I had not done shoreline blinds in a really long time. Hmm, maybe I should look at that log before I go out and train.
I'm running a lot of blinds so we are throwing a lot of marks too.

It is hunting season up here, so lots of people are busy with that! We had our first picnic trial of the season last Sunday. Bonnie was my star of the day--she did a great job on a delayed triple with a mixed bag of ducks and pheasants. Breeze was rusty as we have been off training for so long now, and little Wings had issues with the live gunners--we do so much work with a small group, and so use wingers a lot. So that is something we need to work on for her! Have a conformation show with Butch and his brother this weekend, but we have early ring times, and the folks I am staying with live close to a good hunting spot so we are hoping to show then shoot!

we are planning to get to Dan's today, because if we don't go to Dan's, we don't train. Just the way it is lately. <<sigh>>
Last week we had some *issues* that resulted in putting a fair amount of heat on the monster boy, so we'll see how he does today. To make a long story short, we ran some very, very hard marks last week. He tried every possible avoidance behavior you can think of (hence the heat) and finally just gave up trying to avoid it and got the job done. We did several marks after his "attitude adjustment" and he did an excellent job. So we will see what happens this week.

We are in hunting season here and training/trials won't pick up until spring. Been still training but my training group has withered substantially. One is hunting, one medical, one moving (so sad, good friend who helped me a ton--don't know what I'm going to do without her), a handful of newbies not serious/gave up, one busy with obedience, etc.

Land blinds today at Lazy J, in the front field where they've mowed & baled. Really beautiful, short clipped grass with round bales everywhere
Set up 3 blinds, one down the middle about 120 yards, one to the left about 90 yards and dog had to run through/jump over an exploded bale, one to the right about 250 yards with while goose decoys set up slightly off line to the right halfway to the blind. That got some handling out of Slater! I felt he learned something on the blind, both with pushing back the decoys then the distance. Fisher one-whistled it He's always liked long blinds.
Master test this weekend PLEASE send good mojo....

We did have a good session at Dan's today. Apparently the monster boy took last week's lesson to heart, and he put up some very impressive hunts today. We were again throwing very difficult singles. Nice job, good dog.
Then as his reward, Dan dizzied up some chukkars and planted them all around the field. The field is very tall, very heavy cover. We sent Tito out hunting. Hunt 'em up! Bird out there, where's the bird? He had a blast!! He flushed them, Dan shot them, and Tito retrieved them. What could be better on a sunny fall afternoon!

Today at training we had out 4 Goldens, 3 training for Master and one training for Senior.
We started with a mark/blind drill, then ran technical singles and blinds and finished up with a water blind. Winter did a great job and held her own with the big dogs.

Annie, Good Luck to you and Slater this week-end. Come on Slaydoooo!
