Series 5 Land Quad with an Honor

We are in the same field as the Water Blind. However, we have moved the line up to the road and about 150 yds to the Northwest. The mat is facing Southwest over-looking a field of heavily sprinkled large square hay bales. It is hard to find a straight path among all of the bales. The terrain is a gentle roll of yellow and bright green grasses ranging from light to medium cover. The sky is overcast with a temperature that has warmed to a humid 65'F. There is a light breeze out of the North that will not help scent these pheasants.

The first bird to be shot for this land quad is the long flyer (RF) on the right of the test. This bird is being shot to the left and is a hen pheasant measuring at 215 yds. The next bird (LR) to go off is to the left and throwing a dead hen pheasant to the left measuring at 233 yds. This gun will retire in a stack of tall hay bales. The third bird to be thrown is a swing to the right and is measuring at 145 yds (RR). This gun is throwing a dead hen pheasant hard angle back to the left. This bird lands right up against a hay bale. The final bird (RF) is a drake mallard being shot to the right measuring at 93 yds.
