    Do you and your co- judge discuss and define AOF's for each mark you construct.?
    It is far easier to spit on the work of others than it is to produce something better yourself.

    I don't.

    1. I rarely set up tests where the birds are so tight that the AOF overlaps.
    2. I think the work over the course of a test determines what an acceptable AOF is.

    No. I have not. I am familiar with both the FT and HT Rulebooks.

    I know they both state that judges should decide upon the "hypothetical" boundaries of the AOF before the dogs begin to run.

    I just don't know how you do that until a some dogs have run.

    I was curious if you started out in FT or started in HT's.

    To add......we usually determine the controlled break line as well.

    I started in HRC. I think I was member number 300 or so. Never judged in HRC or AKC HT

    I want to thank all that participate here as I read all these posts. I do think they help those that run HT's in that it gives an idea as to what judges think important.

    I will be running at least one HT and maybe another, depending if I get in tonight. I am curious s to what you as judges would modify your tests in order to consider the guidlines for cov19. My first thought was the judge taking the duck from the handler. Personally, I never turned and looked at judge but held the duck behind me. My thoughts were that a bucket to put the ducks in would work nicely but a friend told me that was against AKC rules.

    Anyway, it would be nice to hear your thoughts given you might be judging soon.
