Judges, when do you instruct your throwers to retire and why?
For example, throw and then retire soon after the bird hits the ground like at this field trial:
Or throw, stand motionless, and wait to retire when the working dog is released for the first mark?
Several years ago we had a Q up here in Alaska where the 2 judges where outside judges.
First series was a triple with 2-retired marks.
Both retired behind conspicuous holding blinds out in a fairly open field.
Is the rulebook requirement to "brush out" holding blinds only for AA stakes?
