    I agree with Darin for the placement of the guns. If they avoid the cover to the right or run tighter to the gun they could drive out further, especially up the hill, and the wind won't help them out, although I would throw it a little more to the left and flatter.

    I would like to know how tall the cover is just shy of the 200 marker. Can a dog be seen hunting in and behind it.

    Ok, I have moved Darin's flyer slightly to the right.



    I want to make it inviting for the dogs to cheat the cover up front and run directly to the guns. I want to divert their attention from the bird. Invite the dogs to set up a hunt in a bad place. As test wears on, some dogs will get hung up in feather drift.

    Darin, I don't like your flyer, because the dogs are more likely to drive the cover, where you have located your flyer. In this location, I want to make it easy to run to and hunt around the flyer guns.

    Cory, I don't like your flyer, because the cover will prevent dogs from running and hunting behind the gun. Remember: the dogs tend to hunt around guns. Don't fight that tendency. Encourage the dogs to indulge that tendency.

    For purposes of this exercise, we assume that we cannot see dogs hunt in the cover.

    See how inviting it is for a dog to cheat the cover, run to the guns, and be diverted from the bird?

    White line is from mat to guns. See how inviting that path is?

    And look at all the room - in 360 degrees around the guns - that a dog can run

    Cory

    See how easy it is for the dog to get from mat to bird?
    See also how the cover prevents the dogs from hunting behind the guns?

    Using the same principles articulated in post 32, you could shoot the flyer this way. Again white line is from mat to flyer guns
