Think we probably have all seen the 'hand down' misused more often than we would like to admit. My take on it would be, however or whatever a person uses the que for be consistent The pro that I use is always getting after me for not putting my hand down on the first bird retrieved in a marking series, but I have always put my hand down to signify 'secondary selection' so avoid the que on the first bird.
Oh, and my "hand down" is behind the dogs ears, they can 'feel' it's presence they don't need to see it. Don't block the dogs view!!!!
