Flight C – Buffalo Wallow – David Christianson and John Marchica


Buffalo Wallow is a triple with a diversion, two blinds and an honor using rooster pheasants. The order was right, left flyer and middle. The diversion bird is thrown as the dog returns with the third bird. The dog runs the left blind and then the right blind, before retrieving the diversion bird. It is taking between 4.5 to 6 minutes per dog.

We watched three dogs run and the handlers chose to pick up the birds in different orders. Some went for the middle bird first and some for the right hand bird first. All of the dogs that we watched completed the test, but one had to be handled on the flyer. We heard that up to this point, 7 of the first 20+ dogs have been eliminated by this test.
