Shotgun Quiz: Win Free Eukanuba Dog Food!

Shotgun Quiz: Win Free Eukanuba Dog Food!

By: John Davis

Two vouchers for Eukanuba dog food to the winning answer this week. Since a great supporter of the retriever world is sponsoring the quiz and the Final’s shotgun course is a mock duck hunt, let’s roll with a retriever question.

Scenario: A timber hunt with calling, dog stand, waders, and Bubba gunners—the real deal. In-line double on left, big swing to the right for an incoming, breaking bird. Judges instruct you to have “Biscuit” pick up the go bird, then retrieve a blind that is on a line under the arc of the double. The judges have declared the double “poisoned” until the blind is retrieved to hand.

To Answer: You are in the gallery with some friends who have never seen any type of retriever trial or hunt test. They want you to explain what is happening, what the terminology means, and what the judges expect to see from the handler/dog team.

Alright now, yall listen up. "Biscuit" needs to follow his handlers commands to the T. The "Go bird" was the last bird shot. He needs to retrieve that bird first.
Next, he has to find and retrieve a "blind" (a bird that went down and Biscuit did not see where it fell) but, the tricky part, is that it is on the same "line" (path or direction) as the double.
He cant mess with the double because it is poisoned. Biscuit has to find the blind bird and bring it back to the handlers hand "without dropping it".
The poisoned bird (a bird that is usually easy to retrieve but is to be left alone until given the command) was the double, if he picks one of them up before retrieving the blind, he will be penalized.
Once he has retrieved the blind he can go for the double. It's just that easy.
