Thread: Marking scenario definitions

    Default Marking scenario definitions

    There are some marking configurations that go by similar names and/or have similar meanings.

    For example... To some people an "inline triple" means the gun stations form a line and all throw the same direction. To others, it means that some of the FALLS are inline, so the dog must go through an old fall en route to a longer fall.

    One of my questions is... Is there a difference between a "flowerpot" and a "mom and pop" (or momma/poppa as some people call it)?

    Some people differentiate between the two in this way: in a flowerpot, both birds come from the same station. In a mom and pop, they come from two stations inline, but one deep of the other. Some folks use the terms interchangably. So at least it's simple and uniform.

    I learned it just the opposite of hookset.


    A flowerpot didn't have to be from the same station but the two gunners had to be on about the same line throwing in opposite directions.

    A momma and poppa was both sets of guns at the same (or nearly) the same gun station and they sat down together as one station after their throws.

    I wonder if it's regional differences or ??????

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    yeah, i think it's regional differences and then a matter of who you've trained with or what you've read.

    A flowerpot requires water(ing).

    So an extension of the original question: What are some of the other names for marking setups and if you can explain them that would be great.

    For example:
    In-Line
    Bulldog
    Indented

    I'm still not all that sure on a hip pocket and a reverse hip pocket.

    I learned it like Howard.

    Hip pockets, tight behinds, off the heels and California/Texas doubles always confuse me.

    I have a problem with "over & unders". Have seen two or three different set-ups called this.
