Test nine

..........................Pam's drawing shows the test. The long bird on the right is thrown left at 320 yardsand the guns/thrower retire into the treeline. On the right, shot and thrown second at 190 yards is a hen pheasant thrown flat to the right and into the hip pocket of the flyer located in the middle of the test; the flyer station shoots a rooster flyer angled back to the right at 210 yards.

Pro trainer Alan Pleasant had these comments about the test: "There is plenty of room to miss that short bird and go deep -- and there is a lot of scent playout off that flyer fall. Plus if you miss the long retired out far to the outside, there is tons of room to go deep and really get into trouble in that deep cover."
