LATEST 40 MI. TOSS

last sunday we took the birds out to the 40 mi. station again.  the weather man said 20% chance of scattered rain showers.   

we did not encounter any rain on the way up and everything looked good, so we realeased the birds and they headed home like always.

about 3/4 of the way home, we encountered a rain shower ( pretty heavy) that had sprung up from the s.w. ( behind them).   

well that 20%  turned into   almost 100 % most of the day.  rain showers  off and on all day!

Had we known any rain was coming, we would not have tossed the birds but you know about  hindsight.

we have dropped several birds but remain hopefull more will return.

another flyer had the same problem the same day as he thought very little chance of rain as predicted by the weatherman.

we apoligize for the mistake , believe me , i sure didn't want this to happen.

the birds that are home are in top shape and intellengent birds to acomplish what they did. you all should be proud of them.

we will let them rest for a few days and return to training.

sincerely

UPDATE

hi breeders/

we did a 5 mi. toss today and found some mistakes so we have been talking with terry gilmore of wincompanion.

we will do another toss tomorrow and hopefully the mistakes have been corrected,  just bear with us.  if you see one, let me know

a lot of the birds showed unassigned breeder  but we will get those corrected.

 

there is one bird that has a hurt wing so has been put aside and one cvr 2387   lost his chip, but we have put another one on him today.

 

keep tuned and let us know if you have any problem that you see.

 

thanks

bob

UPDATE

Hello Breeders

all birds have been loaded into crates and tossed  short as it has been exceptally cool here the last few days.

they were released a crate or two at a time.  i do this to get them used to being crated as they do get frantic the first few

times they are crated.  they are crated at random.   we did have that group the first day that took off the wrong direction, but

all others did fine.

yesterday while out exercising a hawk hit one bird and killed it, the owner was notified.   so today they stayed in, and will try to capture the cullprit.     the only good thing that came from the hawk is the birds took off routing and dissappeared  for a while.

we will continue to crate the birds and toss them short  for a while.

HELLO BREEDERS

today was a nice cool day so i decided to load up a couple crates of the birds and take them a short ways from the loft.

BAD IDEA.   i released them and they circled a couple time, then headed straight n.e.  ( the loft ios to the south).

and went completely out of sight,  so tonight we will see how many are lost .  can't figure it out but it must be a bad day for trainng as a friend of mine who is one of the top pigeon flyers in okla, tossed his birds 15 miles, and after one hour had NO

PIGEONS HOME .  , i hope he gets them back, but he said his did the same thing, headed n.e  and his loft was north west.

 

so stay tuned and we will see the outcome.
