    Question for any judges on here: All things being equal, what is judged more favorably on long marks, (1) a dog that runs straight at the holding blind then over to the bird or (2) a dog that runs to the AOF then puts on a big hunt and finds the bird?

    There were a lot of dogs dropped with what seemed to be acceptable work from reading the blog. Not a criticism of the blog at all. The coverage has been great, but they aren't holding the books.

    The Field Trial Committee must have decided it was dangerous, all the tree throwing, because now they're going thru the trees.
