Based on the information given, I would favor dog #2 if it was my weekend to judge. Judges are to make direct comparisons, "series by series", of each dog's work to determine placements and the "relative merits" on that day. Judging blinds as pass/fail seems inconsistent with this directive. In my opinion, dog two did relatively better when taking all series into account based on the descriptions. My opinion would change if the "large and lengthy" hunt on the flyer in the last series was out of the area of the fall as opposed to in the area of the fall as predetermined by the judges when setting the test.
