[b]Assignment[/b]: blind hides, outside.
[b]Location[/b]: enchanted meadow ? grass and leaves. Expanded search area to include the slightly sloped section.
[b]Hides[/b]: 4 blind hides.
[b]Assistant[/b]: My assistant did all 4 hides in grass correctly! Yay!
[b]Run Order[/b]: Speed was 2nd.
[b]Conditions[/b]: early morning, mid to upper 40s, foggy, damp.
[b]Aging[/b]: ~20 minutes
Two of the 3 stooges show up at the end of the video. For some reason, my assistant thinks I?m done when we finish the 3rd hide, so I pull out the hides to count and have 4. Speed?s staring at me so I have a party. I am so used to doing 3 hides, I think ?silly me, he?s right, we?re done?, but as I walk to the house I realize there?s still one out there. After the dogs ate their meal, I took Speed back out and he found the 4th one, no problem.
I think Speed?s doing great. Having 8 years working with Speed, our working relationship is rock solid. I will continue to do a little priming with him at the start.
Plan for remainder of week 3: Same plan as with Monza: do another set of 4-5 hides in another grassy area of the yard that’s slightly sloped. Then return to meadow and do 3 targets: 1 slightly buried and 2 in grass or 2 buried and 1 in grass? Comments?
Thanks Alana and Kristin!
