     Wind, air currents, and thermals, are ever changing. The six photo samples are from endless possibilities.

1. Thick pungent scent of a resting bird. Pup won't miss this one!

 

2. Scent rising on heated air currents. Pup is trying to find a needle in a haystack, can it get any harder.

3. Out feeding, look at the scent this bird is leaving behind. Pups emphasis on a easy-going pace will set this bird.

 

4. Sent moving along with our bird. With pups instinctive touch and understanding this bird will set. We've all seen it. Pup on point, glimmering questioning eyes rolling slowly from side to side, the bird is here...somewhere!

5. Clean-edged scent from this bird is a hit or miss for pup. Running past up wind within inches pup will still miss'em. Running down wind pup scores a very enhanced point "where's the camera!"

 

6. Scent skipping across the field ads to the challenge, pup will sort it out.
