    Wayne, The layout blind discussion was around using the layouts to retire gunners in a FT where there is limited cover/terrain to retire gunners. I have heard of using layouts at the line for AKC hunt tests though.

    I haven't run AKC in a very, very long time. Just HRC. There all guns are retired behind a holding blind.

    You mean "hidden," not "retired."

    There is a difference between something that was never there, and something that was there and isn't any longer.

    Drive is the manifestation of Desire, and measured in Style.
    Thank you judges who score Style, you are preserving Desire!

    the dog/handler can pick them up in any order they choose
    For the most part that is true....but on a re-run you must attempt to pick up the birds in the same order you did the first time.

    My source, who shall remain nameless, but has the initials MS, says the wind shifted just as Chad and Trav got to the line. The wind is now blowing from behind and right of the handler. My source says he was extremely proud of Ali for coming up with the birds as well as he did. By the way, the wind has made another shift and is again favorable.

    Everyone around here seems to be afraid to name names so I figured I better be safe and keep my "source" confidential!!
