Arggghhh! Thanks for reminding me why I haven't done hunt tests much. Too much going on all around. My head spins just looking at the pictures, no wonder my dog totally loses his mind when all those duck calls, shotguns etc start going off all around him within 100 yards. But by golly I'm gonna give it a try this summer. Got to do something!
Thanks for posting - clearly marked pictures like this help me understand what to expect. One thing I'm curious about....what would a JH and SH level test look like compared to this? Or the HRC level tests.....
In hunt tests, the birds fall one bird at a time, the dog picks them up one bird at a time. If your mind is spinning, how do you keep your dog calm and on task?Quote:

Howard, you have precisely identified my problem! Spin control anyone?
Great post Willie. It's nice to see set up's at the master level so we can use the same scenario during training. Technology is a wonderful thing.
Thanks for the different senior set up diagrams. Planning on running seniors this spring and while I am confident she's ready, it's always nice to consider other setups and things to train for :)
Thanks, Willie I will be running some of these set ups this weekend, you have been a big help. This is good stuff!!;-)
Willie, on the third series double with a walk up, when was the diversion thrown? Was this after they picked up bird one or two?
Thanks for sending these out. We will try similar set up's at our HRC training day this weekend.
