    Yep, containers are our concern. Hunter gets fooled on blowing/pooling odor. Our first try at NW2 he hit odor immediately, checked several bags and then gave me a nice solid alert. The odor bag was directly across the room and every time the door opened it sucked odor into that bag. He essentially found the strongest odor across the odor cone instead of working it back to source. Add an unknown number of hides plus distractors? Yeah, I will be wary of containers if we ever get into an NW3! I would love to just work on it through the fall and enter next spring, but we have ridiculously long waiting lists for NW3 in my area, so I am just entering what I can and will go with whatever I get into, ready or not!
