I didn't feel so confident being my 1st event but Buddy thought otherwise. Saturday, did well, had 2 points, he caught 1 bird I thought, oh boy please don't play keep away, thankfully he came to me with the bird, he handled great, the judges dinged him on trainability? Pass
Sunday, I again thought he did awesome, 3 points, one bird broke on us before I could get as close as I wanted, fired the blank, the judge said he did fine. He had a running partner today that was chasing him and wanted to play, they had one collision, Buddy stayed focused and wanted to hunt. When we got to the birdfield I put some distance between us and it went well. Pass
Here's a few pics of an attempted stack, probably did it wrong but wanted to give it a try. Overall I thought the judging was pretty tough.
Woohoo!! Congratulations. I know how excited you are. When is the next Hunt Test you can enter?
I was going to say the same thing as lauralee, don't stretch his back legs out quite so much. Still a pretty good stack and a great weekend with two qualifying scores.
Congrats, hope you got that last leg today. We are done with Hunt Tests in our area, so I have to wait until Fall for Ringo's last leg. He is now with a trainer. The plan is to actually have him ready to go for his Master Hunter for Fall so I may actually skip the final JH leg and SH and go to the MH when we have some more Hunt Tests. We'll see how he does over the summer.
Congratulations again. I know that feeling when time is running out and you are praying they find a bird.
