His first bird was a walk up.
Walk to the line with gun, bird gets launched and a shot goes off. You have to point the gun that direction. Trap follows the gun.
I shoulda been watching him and just pointed the gun in that direction, but I didn't.
He didn't see it. First was a memory bird.
Now you turn, and second bird is a live shot flyer. Judge says "dog or your number" and then you can tell your dog to go. Usually dogs are sent when you say there name.
He gets the flyer, delivers to hand, and Im already lined up on the walk up memory bird. Say his name and he runs about 3/4 of the way and pops. He didn't know what he was going for. He pops occasionally, but then turns and continues when I don't direct him.
He started hunting and left the area and went back to the flyer fall area.
I thought it was a marking test and didn't know I could have whistled him and then give him a hand signal of where to go.
I failed him......
