Had Sadie out to the club for some work. Ran some drills, and put out 5 birds for her and I to play with. Did pretty good overall, but she had a little trouble finding them in the rain (it was drizzling). I was working with her on steadiness as well - I would like her to steady to the fall. She did great with the dummies, with shots being fired over her, but when it came to birds - she was just too excited. Started holding steady toward the end of the day, on some simlated birds (bird was about dead). I guess it would have helped if the birds would've fell asleep easier (I was having issues with that today). Anyways - work in progress, and not a bad day out! I also got the opportunity to try out a camera mounted to my hat - which worked GREAT!

Camera mounted to my hat video...
Real easy to build one, too. If you have a light camera (I have a Sony point-and-shoot - pink no less, but that is another story) just run to the hardware store (I ran to Menards) and pick up a 1/4 - 20 UNC thumb-screw (I think it cost me $1.98). Punch a 1/4" hole in the brim (stiff, thick, brim preferred) of the hat, as close as reasonable to the hat (I was a little too close and the thumb-screw just touches my forehead - not uncomfortable, but any closer and I would have had to re-punch, or modify the thumb-screw!) and VOILA! HAT-CAM! You may need some washers, or have to cut the screw down shorter (I cut mine). More video to follow! When I watch it, I feel like I am in a first-person hunting game (especially with low-resolution, I am an old Atari player...).
