That is what failed us Sunday, dog would not come off first mark and never saw flyer!

    Only on the walk up. Other marks have a duck call and shot. At least I've never seen a senior, or master for that matter, where there wasn't a duck call before the throw. Again, except on the walk up.

    Maybe I'm deaf. I did not hear a single call on any mark in the last three seniors. I know they used them all the time when I first tried with the older dog. It made him insane.

    Section 4. Test Set-Up.
    The Judges, with paramount regard to Section 1 of this Chapter, shall determine the tests to be given and shall design those tests in order to approximate as nearly as possible the conditions met in true hunting situations. In keeping with this aim, the Judges shall design and enhance hunting situations by utilizing, as naturally as possible, the equipment that would be found in a true upland game or waterfowl hunting situation. Strategic placement of numerous decoys, use of camouflaged blinds to conceal guns and throwers, duck boats, duck and goose calls, etc., are necessary adjuncts to Hunting Tests for Retrievers.

    I have to ask-what exactly did they kill the flyer with? Lasers? Your dog didn't pull off the dead mark cause he didn't want to, they do that sometimes. I find it hard to believe not a single call was used in the last 3 tests you have run.

    Well Nancy they didn't kill it with a duck call! Like I said, I must be hard of hearing cause I never heard a duck call. Too many years of rock 'n roll. And of course he didn't pull off the memory bird because "he didn't want to". That's his "issue". Work in progress.

    By the way Nancy, my training partners these days are rocket scientist.

    Calls AND shots. Plenty of attention getters, judges following the rules......there ya go.

    Sorry Goose didn't mean to derail your thread- we almost always use a holding blind or natural cover to hide the Gunners out here in the Midwest.
