Today after reading an article on how water fowler's don't work on drag lines until it may be too late I decided to take Gauge out and do a few. She has never done this drill before so I guess the article was correct maybe it is overlooked and we only work on retrieves. So following the instructions I read I put Gauge away and did a simple 20 yard drag, got her out of the truck walked and heeled her up to the starting point, sat her and then gave the command "dead bird hunt em' up". Yeah 20 yards took all of 10 seconds. I then extended out to 60 again she loved "the game" so I made it a bit harder and did one out to 100, this one was over snow as well as grass and in some decent cover it took her a few mins but she came back with the bird.
Quick question when I run my first drill for a right over, should I run her a few times to the back pile with a stop at the T intersection and continue her back 2 or 3 times and on the next run sit her at the T and then cast her over? I am pretty sure this is what I should do but just want to check.
