Default Tracking with Ruger (warning; kind of boring video)

Here is a video of my dog Ruger tracking. It is not a really complex track. 3 legs, the first corner is only a slight angle change and the second corner is right turn. I make a couple of handling mistakes. At the first article, I checked him harder than I realized before I watched the video. At the second article, he walks it and I did not check him at all. He kind of paused at the article and I was trying to give him a chance to down on his own and he did not. At the last article (end of track) he downed on his own. At one point in the video, he looked back. This was in response to my son who stumbled some while videoing in the clumps of grass. I used food drops very randomly.
