Who knows why, it makes me wonder if the club you speak of only give their hunters an hour of traveling and dog gathering time for a regular 2hr hunt, much less if they called timeout. Most hunt directors or MOH ask the cast going the farthest what kind of deadline they need. I personally make my early round deadlines just before the late round deadline. In the other kc we make them the same time.
Back in February I remember seeing a DH down in Oklahoma that had hunt sign up deadlines of 7 and 9. I was thinking whoever set this up has never hunted in one before! That would barely be enough time to call out cast drive to a close spot hunt an hour and drive back. Everything would have to go perfect for a cast to get back by the 2nd hunt. I think that for some it is just inexperience at DH and through a little trial and error most will figure it out.
Just a week or so ago some had asked about signing up and leaving instead of setting around and waiting on the late round hunt deadline to see if anyone new shows up. Another told them to draw out cast and wait, neither can be done. Again inexperience in how these things function. Anyone that has attended very many know that most of the time it's the same hunters in both but there are many times that someone who couldn't make it early come late. We have 2 at our club who is more likely to make it to the late because of work or other family obligations.
Most on the side of the world where they have been doing these thing for years and years late winter hunts are 7 and 11, 8 and 12 in fall and spring, 9 and 1 in the summertime. This is dependent upon time zone and when the time changes but there is almost always 4 hrs between. Most of the time they don't need it but in the summer when it's not getting dark till after 9:30 here there are times when they barely make it back and aren't hunting far from the club.
