12/23 Gap Analysis - transition (blinds), OB & "whoa", upland (steady to flush & shot), HRC
         1/6    Gap Analysis - HRC "stuff", upland - considering the snow & cold "It's going well."
         1/11  Gap Analysis - need to use "real" ducks regularly

          Dec. 21 marking phases  - influenced by Hillman's philosophy and personal experience

                   #1 work on pure marking skills first - straight to the AOF (refer to early Hilllmann Land
                        Fundamentals) many singles, orange bumpers, pin-point expectations with "reps"
                                     note: Pounce is well into this phase with confidence & good distance
                   # 2 introduce how multiple marks influence each other - basic concept singles first
                                     note: Pounce has (from day one) demonstrated having an excellent memory
                   # 3 introduce factors - wind & terrain (it is winter = no water = built in simplification)
                                      note: repeat above in spring and remember land skills do not always
                                                simply carryover to water = KISS time
                   # 4 introduce the influence of combining marks with blinds (transition phase)

                                           note: this is a work in progress (begun December 21, 2015)
