I prefer to create a tepee like structure that is visible by its shape, and place the bird 5 feet in front of the tepee. I have also brushed up gun stands and used them as markers. If you want to use orange, I find that if you place it high - say 6' above ground on a tree branch, the dogs do not notice it as much
Competition does not build character - It reveals it.
