In my experience, stupid doesn't recognize that they have ran out of scent. Dogs that over run will leave a check area in weeds and briars and result in a loss worse than in an open field. In an open field there is a line of scent if the dog will keep searching. In a briar patch, more than likely the rabbit changed direction and squatted a few feet away. A dog that ranges will almost never recover.
