    now in hindsight, this could be a trick question.
    We need to know the color of your coat Ed.
    are you ankle to earlobe in shadow grass
    or in a crisp white coat with black gloves?
    Did you just use your duck call to tell the judges you were all set?

    I'm going outside my area of knowledge. But for Dr. Ed, isn't it mainly in field trials that a blind is a separate series?
    I know in HRC, that a blind is almost always incorporated into a series that includes both marks and blinds. And the gun stations for marks are hidden. Sometimes not as well as other times. Sometimes behind holding blinds, sometimes behind trees, brush piles, etc. Sometimes the blind is run first and sometimes last.

    I guess Ken and I were typing at the same time. Same question but worded differently.

    Depends....in HRC the guns can be extremely well hidden. The dog doesn't necessarily know if a mark or a blind is coming.

    edit to add....Wayne and I must have been typing at the same time!

    I prefer mauve, taupe, and teal but sometimes navy or tan depending on pants color and accessories...

    Ahh. The Art of Sarcasm. Unfortunately everybody doesn't find it nearly as useful or witty as I do. It should come as a standard issue IMO.
