We just ran marks this morning. Nothing over the top. Just two double retired triples...land, then a water series. Happy with the land...he smoked that. Water was just okay, with a picky handle on the long retired due to a square. He did check nicely into the short retired.
We're going to back off this coming week and do therapy marks. Just easy singles with minimal factors while upholding our standards.

The sponsors of the shoot asked our retriever club to do the dog work and we had 8 of the guys bring their dogs. They shot 300 pheasants in the morning and 300 in the afternoon, so the dawgs got some great work.....50 pheasants each, plus or minus. The cool weather made it as easy on the dogs as possible. Everybody had a good time!
