Well, we are all thankful for the generosity of landownes who donate the use of wonderful places to run Dogs. I recall from somewhere that when the freeforall ran in south Mississippi they used about 8000 acres. That kind of ground likely isn't available any more East of the river, but it stl is in Texas and Oklahoma. The bird population isn't as consistent out there tho and is harder to manage.
I still think there is a place for the 3 hour Free For All.
How about Kansas and the 43000-acre Z Bar with wild birds only.LOLTakes a real tough dog to run the prairie for three hours on horseback.
>Btw, I saw in the field they ran a 1 hour aa on >430 acres!!
D^mn, I bet that course had a lot of 180 degree turns! Harry
