    In a general sense, yes, there can be benefit. I'm not there so I can't comment specifically about this set-up. But I can give you my personal experience with selecting out of order...not very good. I attempt this from time to time but almost always when the dog shows me clearly it would prefer the out of order bird (say the shorter 2nd bird rather than the longer last bird thrown). I have attempted to influence one of my dogs to select on several occasions & my recollection is that I have been successful maybe twice out of a dozen times. It's just a tough set-up made even tougher by the factors (wind, cover, hen pheasants). Sure puts the judges in the driver's seat.

    As evidenced by the 50% drop from the 7th going into the 8th!

    Thanks much for the reply, David.
