HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN IT?
If your following the "National Championship" at the Ames Plantation, it was reported that National Ch. Shell Creek Coin had 5 finds. His bracemate, last years champion Whippoorwill Wild Agin had two unproductives. The first two braces before them had a total of 3 finds.

Was his race slower and more deliberate? Does he have a better handler that directed him to likely bird locations? How can you possibly explain what makes one dog so much better than the others, at least on one particular day? Ah, the mysteries that keep us searching for that really great dog.
