Please remember this is a “training day”, not a hunting day. There will be an open field to exercise your dog prior to your field work. So you can view your dog when it makes bird contact, Plant your birds at a reasonable distance. This will help keep things moving along for all participants.

Bring lunch, check cord, shotgun, shells no larger than 7 shot, and a way to carry birds if you have one. An assistant gunner will be provided if you desire. Blaze orange will be required in the field!!
