Eight, 45 minute shooting dog courses are marked and trimmed, now its a matter of deciding seven which courses will produce the most birds.
Four, 30 minute derby courses are also set up going thru some of the best woodcock cover in the area. I'm hoping to add a 5th course if it produces birds for me.
