Thanks Oriana for letting everyone in on the secret!!
This weekend Fisher finished his SENIOR HUNTER title, plus a "bumper" leg on Sunday, down in Okeechobee where it was freakin' hot 90+ weather but thank god for little Hondas that can idle all day with the AC on :)
Fisher scared me by having a really rough land blind in the morning, looping behind not one but two gigantic clumps of palmettos then climbing back THROUGH them when I blew a come-in whistle, but after giving me a heart attack he took some good casts and got the bird! Water was totally clean so we passed! The next day the pressure was off and not only did he nail all marks with no hunts, but lined both blinds. GO FISH!!!
So now we are back to the training board, hope to run some HRC Finished and maybe a master test in the spring. We'll see :)

Oh -- and I must say, Saturday's test had THE most ridiculous flyer I've ever seen. There was a huge mound/hill/plateau thing that they launched the flyer off, seriously it was about two hundred feet in the air before they shot it in the butt and the bird plummeted to the ground. The mark itself was only about 40 yards but the dogs had to sit and watch it for what seemed like forever. Here's a picture someone took that doesn't quite do it justice (that's the bird in the air going right to left, landing in front of mound):


Anyhoo, long weekend, great time, great friends, great dogs -- I'm pooped!!!!

PS - Dad please tell your mom she needs to stay "connected" when she goes to these things. It was very hard for my dad to not spill the whole can of worms the past two days! ;)
