I use the hand on marks as a release for the go bird, and when I am cueing the dog up for the long bird especially if its a retired bird. My use of a hand on the blind depends on the blind, I am more likely to use it on a long blind that I think I need lots of momentum on.

The most difficult concepts of hand use for me were 1, to remember that I was NOT aiming the dog with it, and 2 to not put my hand down until the dog was locked up on its destination(not putting it down and then bringing it back up when the dog looked off)
