10/24 TOSS

On today's toss we had to wait to turn out birds starting at 9:30.  There was heavy overcast.  We turned birds out 2 crates at a time.  It was very hazy and got a little warm.  Hopefully we will get some birds in the morning.

TRAINING

Today is a nice clear day however there are 50-60 mi. winds in the mountains starting 25 mi. out and further.  Therefore we are just giving them a short toss.  Tomorrow winds are gonna be bad again so we will train again on Wed.

TRAINING

We haven't trained the past 2 days because of weather.  We actually got some rain in San Diego on Friday night and Saturday and today have been very cloudy, not good for training.  Weather is supposed to be good this coming week so training shhould be good.  In our last toss we acturally had 445 go to toss so we dropped 10 so far.  Not sure why, hopefully some of those will straggle in.  Entry forms will be mailed out beginning of next week.  Good Luck!!

TRAINING

On yesterday's toss, 10/9, we encoutered an falcon right after releasing the first group.  The birds appeared to scatter and some went to the ground.  We feel that is why some of the birds straggled in all afternoon and more came home today.  After we train tomorrow we will have a more accurate count on exactly how many birds in the loft.  Training today went well.

We trained on Friday and will be training today, couldn't put them on training page.  Training page will resume on Sunday.  Birds are doing will, we plan on training most every day unless the weather dictates othewise.  When we get out to 40-50 miles we will be alternating days.  We will be sending out entry forms in a couple weeks.

TRAINING

The start of training has to be delayed a couple days because we have had extremely thick cloud cover the past couple days.  The sun doesn't come out until afternoon hours if at all.  We will start training as soon as we feel the weather is adequate.  The latest inventory is on the training page.  Good luck to everybody this year.
