The mist is hanging on the tree tops on top of the hills and temperatures are cool and promise to stay that way today. Wind is negligible.
Left Flyer: The line faces NW and sits atop a mound. The birds are shot left to right, "round the horn." The first bird of this quad is a rooster pheasant flyer shot to the right at 153 yards. The line cuts the end of a pond and up an incline of mowed cover in a field with large square bales. One of the bales has been broken up and spread around to create the look of "simulated cover."
Left Middle: The second bird is a dead duck thrown to the right to the first island of another pond requiring an angle entry. This mark is at 138 yards.
Right Retired: The third bird, a rooster pheasant is thrown right into a mowed field at 232 yards towards a stand of trees. There is another island on line to the bird. This gun station retires.
Right Flyer: The fourth is a flyer hen pheasant shot right towards a mound. There is an un-mowed strip to cut through to retrieve this bird at 130 yards.
The test is taking approximately 11-12 minutes per dog.
