Still wondering about the "permission cast"...
Sigh...I sound like Gooser,,,,
Howard, if u use the sheep bleat baaaaack out there, it can be made to be heard on the longest of blinds.
A permission cast, usually a cast with a specific tone of voice added, when given cues the dog to get out
If he gets a "normal" cast, even right into the shore, he is to stay wet.
Please refer to post #53...Steve S
