Depends on what obstacles they have to fly around or over. Here in the open countryside first shot is 30 miles. Then another there. Will be open loft usually so into the first race. 150 miles. If they are flying around good. Different locations different methods.

Had mine out nearly every day over the winter so might not take them down the road. Any thoughts?

if their experienced and flying well around the loft I would just give 2 or 3 at 15 miles to tune them into the game that's about to start ...don't see the point hammering old birds early season just my thoughts though cow and chicken atb fer 2017

For me O/S Smile Smile it all comes down to the roof/flying trick & if your birds are not in the right mental frame as such when giving them the first toss, one more than likely will get a hiding sadly at times at 2 or 20 miles etc I suspect.

Last year had the young to the 30 mile station. They had been slow from there 3 times. Was speeding and made it back in good time. I was getting out of the van then seen them. Way down near the lake shore almost a mile away. 15 minutes later they came back from the West and still flew. Guess was not long enough for them.

107 mpm Hal Smile Smile for the last mile etc Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes. No chance of being picked up for speeding by the radar gun I suspect there at the time Wink Wink.

hi phil, I think for me it would depend on how much racing experience they had had the season before, if they had raced the full yb program I would start them off around 10 - 15 miles, and that's also providing they had been regularly exercise around home during the off season. JMO

1 2 3 5 Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Smile Smile  why bother Wink Wink young or old, an insult to there intelligance factor from my perspective. Just imagine our beloved Ray Smile Smile basketing up all his scrubbers & the effort lol! lol! lol! & taken them1 2 or 3 miles.  cheers
