Well, I haven't. There was a guy we used to call "Nitchie". He filled it perfectly because his name was Nitchman! When I was a newcomer to field trials, I heard him lecturing a group of guys in the clubhouse at lunch. "Never beat a dog around birds," he was saying. I told that to Gene Uhlman while we were riding the next brace. Nitchie was handling and his dog chased at flush on it's first point and predictably, Nitchie beat the he11 out of it. "So Nitchman says 'Never beat a dog around birds,' huh" was Gene's only comment. Strangely enough, I really had no answer!
