The folks on the cast report an expected cast time of 10:45, about 30 minutes from now. They are going not too far and expect to be in a good patch of woods.
----------------------------------
Cast at the woods, handlers buckling on the garmins, everyone assembled for the famous "judge talk.
----------------------------------
Dogs cast at 10:45, wind is a blowing, but maybe they can hear the dogs
----------------------------------
Strike Cutter Jim for 100
----------------------------------
Strike AJ for 75
----------------------------------
And just like lightning out of the north, tree the Cutter Jim for 100
----------------------------------
All dogs have a good voice and may be an asset with the wind and the leaves
----------------------------------
Second tree closed and they are walking that way.
----------------------------------
AJ comes on the tree for 50
----------------------------------
Cast arrives and handle the dogs, David wants to shine alone for the first two minutes.
----------------------------------
Big Silas is heard in the distance but has not been called, judge is busy searching the tree.
----------------------------------
Judge finally hears the Silas and asks for a call. Silas is struck for 50.
----------------------------------
Silas is treed for 100
----------------------------------
Jim and AJ get bad news on their tree and are minus for being a little too quick
----------------------------------
Now they are leash locked and will have to lead to Silas tree.
----------------------------------
Cutter Jim -------200-
Jack's AJ-----------125-
Silas-----------------150 pending
----------------------------------
Ole Silas was a fur-piece in there and they are hustling to get there.
----------------------------------
Silas is treed on a tree line by a drying up pond.
----------------------------------
DON'T TAKE LONG, EVIDENCE IS THERE AND BIG SILAS IS PLUS 150+
----------------------------------
David decides to withdraw Cutter Jim.
----------------------------------
They call time out with 23:11 left in the cast.
----------------------------------
Must be close to a road, the Guide takes David and Jim back to the truck
----------------------------------
Dogs are recast and the minute is running.
----------------------------------
Everything is quiet, wind is-a-blowing. Cast moves up on the pond bank to see if they can hear them.
----------------------------------
Tom Wilson is forecasting rain because of a ring around the moon.
----------------------------------
Wind still blowing and the handlers have their hand cupped around their ears. Trees are creaking like a haunted house.
----------------------------------
Yep; that's a dog, strike the AJ for 100
----------------------------------
Yep; tree the AJ for 100
----------------------------------
The boy knows how to catch up.
----------------------------------
Three hills, one field, a railroad track and a couple of fences and Ole AJ has the eyes, plus 200
----------------------------------
Big Silas ----- 150+
----------------------------------
AJ -----------75+
----------------------------------
AJ is off the lead and still has 75 points of work to do and not much more than a minute to get it done.
----------------------------------
Silas struck for 100
----------------------------------
