DAY SIX – Test Three – Flight B – Pearly Gates – Ed Arnett and Laura Judd

"Pearly Gates" is a water triple with a blind using all ducks. It is shot around the horn left to right. Decoys are situated to the right of the line at the end of the levee bank. Handlers walk up the levee to the line. Each station has been instructed to blow three calls of their duck calls and then shoot and throw. The left bird is thrown to the right onto land. The middle bird has a flat throw to the left with a splash. The right hand bird is thrown left angle back. The blind is across the pond over a long point, reentering the water through some brush and into a back pond. The bird is up on the bank and there is no diversion shot.


At lunchtime, we went to the "Pearly Gates" to check up on the progress of Flight B. Dogs will be running for 2-3 hours before this test three is in the books. It is still taking 11-12 minutes per dog.
