Not much explanation needed.
I have a 2x 6 across two cinder blocks behind the kennel for same drill.
That's the standard set-up I see on training grounds!
We'd just started the drill as working on a lot of angle entries, blind factors, cheaty stuff....and the dog takes to it all pretty well. More concerned with the bird than taking the easy way out (which is nice).
But as one would expect - hitting bales at 75 yards to and fro went fast. I removed one bale last night and increased the distance to about 150 and the first attempt was a cheat.
Early next week will angle 3 bales into cover on the backside. Still haven't gotten around to competent handling skills so those will begin as marks not blinds.
