Question for any judges on here: All things being equal, what is judged more favorably on long marks, (1) a dog that runs straight at the holding blind then over to the bird or (2) a dog that runs to the AOF then puts on a big hunt and finds the bird?
Looks like dog 100 was added back in...
There were a lot of dogs dropped with what seemed to be acceptable work from reading the blog. Not a criticism of the blog at all. The coverage has been great, but they aren't holding the books.
Test description and picture are posted...
looks like its a keyhole or in this case a "field goal" blind
Must be strong dogs "throwing" the trees after going over the mound. :-P
The Field Trial Committee must have decided it was dangerous, all the tree throwing, because now they're going thru the trees.
