    See the poison bird thread for a time when I would stop and give a straight back for a momentum cast to try to get mine by the PB.

    I'll look for that split casting drill. Thanks for your help.

    Wayne is right that there is no straight back after TT. After that, they start learning that straight back is actually 5-6 degrees (roughly) to the right or left, so there is a direction change.

    You are right that it may not be a switch, and I could make at least as strong an argument using the actual words of the rule that it is not a switch for the reason you cited. If you look at the...

    Sounds like a random attack of what I have learned to call the "4 legs and a tail syndrome." Mine has it sometimes as well.

    Precisely the reason we are telling you what we are. My dog sits in the blind and shakes while he waits on birds.

    It's your dog and you are certainly free to manage him as you see fit.

    Good point here. I am currently involved in some "steadiness rehab" where a no-go there can actually be a good thing. With a soft send, it is great if my particular dog decides not to go;...
