"cast your dog toward the blind""
They will judge control from that response!
It wiil be that particular judges opinion as to how he interprets the rules...
But from what I have seen and experienced,, you will not be dropped, if your dog doesnt get on a specific point, or jump over a log. If you keep your dog heading in the direction of where the blind is planted,, and handel when he is not going in that direction,, and the dog corrects and takes the cast,, you will meet the standard.. If he miises a log, or point that may be on that dead straight line to the bird from the handlers line by a few feet,, I dont think the dog should be dropped in HRC..
I would as a Judge ask myself,, "would I hunt with this dog?"
THAT would be my determining factor..
