There is a rule in place that takes care of the dog being abused during hunt time. Use it if you think a person is abusing a dog. You can get a dog to do almost anything you want it to . Once they understand what you expect from them a verbal approach will normally work. The main reason I believe for the deep an alone is people are tired of these back packing pos getting undeserved points. You people are sinking the ship before it leaves harbor. Sounding like a bunch of whining liberals.
Mr Graves. You hit the nail on the head. During hunt time! Not to many hunters are dumb enough to try to "train" at the hunt. The abusive part is done long before then. You call them back packers. Call them whatever you want, but how can anyone say the points are undeserved? The rules clearly state the points awarded and in what order. If the hound that's the best hound is working right, he/she will win most times. Points are deserved when earned in accordance with the rules, letting the hounds be their natural selves. What the real problem is the loner dog can't beat the packer when the loner has been made to fear his own kind and you know it, but will not admit it. There are many dogs man made to be alone. Not so many that are natural. Yes there are some. All is in the eye of the beholder, or should we say what we hold on our lead. To each his own, but changing rules to fit what we hunt is not the right thing to do. You sound more like the AOC type than I could ever sound. Good luck to you. I just stated a point that has not been thought out in depth as it should be. Rules can be anything, and if I am moh they will be enforced as written. We just need to be careful what we right because it can be detramental at times.
