150 Mile Race Results - Big 11 Bird Drop!!

21st through 31st on the first 150 mile race vs 496 pigeons, 39 lofts competing. We had a nice drop of 11 with the winds against us. The birds did good, all 11 are top 10%.

Update: Rolla, MO Toss 87.885 Miles

Jumped the birds to 87 miles this morning with a 10mph NE cross/head wind. They gave us 1215 ypm, got a bit of a workout today. I wonder if they used the Sun or the Moon to navigate today??

40 Mile Jump Update

The jump from 10 miles to 40 miles went very well. The YPM was pretty slow, like 700 (haha), but that is to be expected and speed is not a concern at this time (This is their 4th toss overall). I think they joined up with the birds from the Illinois clubs, not sure. I had a handful of pigeons show up with mine that continued on North. I had 25 on the initial drop, and the remaining knuckleheads came 5 minutes later...100% accounted for!

Line of Flight from St. Clair Toss 41.288 Miles

Bypass the arc on 44 at the St. Clair exit, dead on the line of flight to young bird loft.

Road Training Update

Training is coming along nicely. We went a couple miles last Sunday. Today, we double tossed from 7 and 10 miles. We're jumping them to the 40 mile point, and holding there through the next couple of weekends. Birds are fully winged and through the body molt...looking like these two... The season starts Aug. 18th - I love YB racing!
