I think that all predators will freeze and stop a stalk. I think flash pointing is a useful term for the instinct pause during a stalk. I have had 6 goldens and all but one of them would point upland birds. Two of them would hold a point for 20 to 30 seconds. I had one that was returning with a quail and locked up in a point on a bobwhite in a small clump of grass. That one flushed and he turned fast to follow it. I shot it and he marked it down and turned back to look at me and I said, here. He then retrieved the bird he pointed. The same dog pointed wild turkeys for us in a CRP native field. All three of us shot pointed wild turkeys. We had walked into a group of about 30.
