Your little MOCH hunt is stupid. All the bickering back an forth, both of you should have been scratched for unsportsmanlike conduct. Why in the world would you tie dogs that close to one another. Your asking for a fight to happen. Common sense my friend.

Wonder why itís always the same people having to draw out and hunt with a mean dog? The mean ones are few and far between.

I'm still trying to understand two dogs tied to a truck while shining a tree. Do some of you drive to trees?

Here's how I see this.

Group 1) they have heartless gutless backpacking dogs that can't handle pressure of any kind and want tree jackers, blowers, and any dog that can win over there's scratched. I don't care for a true mean dog, never have and never will. They don't tend to make it here.

Group 2) this group likes mean dogs and prays on everyone else's dogs. And this type don't tend to be loners, they backpack more so than the typical cuz its how they win is to back a dog and run it off the tree. I hate type of dog and don't care much for the owners either.

Group 3) (my group)Dog doesn't take deal from others, but doesn't ever seem to fight anything unless teeth were applied to it. I don't want a mean dog. But I want 1 that doesn't take any deal from the rest of them. And honestly I like them to end the squabble fast and in a hurry. My Bildo dog I would definitely not put in the mean category. He would take some cheap but as soon as some teeth came in contact he ended it pretty quick only seen 2 dogs that he wouldn't tolerate on tree much. Both of those dogs would run other dogs off the tree. And I've got some good memories of the look on the handlers faces to those dogs when they couldn't run Bildo off a tree.

I know people are getting scratched for their dog defending itself, and honestly it happens more than most of want to admit. It won't effect me anyway this rule goes down. But I do happen to think you can't scratch a dog for a fight it didn't start. If you think that's right then you need to re-evaluate the sport if your choice. A dog defending itself doesn't mean a mean or aggressive dog. If you do then you fit in group 1.

Ya your right I probably don't have the knowledge or kahunas to judge it but it just so happens I'm headed to PA this weekend. Not sure what your MOCH hunt is exactly but you arrange it and I'll give it a shot I'm sure I've judged bigger hunts than this.

If only 2 dogs on tree & fight breaks out, I would also give them 1 warning to see if I could figure out who aggressor was UNLESS they are both balled up when I walk in. If next tree has a fight with different dog, then you can figure out who aggressor in first incident probably was. Take care, Ron.

Your stupid for having both dogs together on a tailgate. If it wasn't during the duration of the hunt I don't care what they do. I guess if I'm judge and they did it under my authority after the card was given out they'd be scratched if the were actually fighting out, If not no interference can happen while on the leash so nothing would happen. The handlers may have been scratched before the dogs if y'all get along as well at a hunt as you do here.

This rule isn't grey in any way but I do not trust Joe blow that the local club has judging to be able to tell the difference in a dog fight and some blowing at a tree. There is also way to many ways to screw this up.

Chey, you mentioned earlier of a judge being able to basically scratch the whole cast with out seeing whats going on. They cant do that. In order for you to scratch 2 dogs for fighting you there can only be 2 dogs there and you must know without a doubt where the other dogs in the cast are. Lots of people miss that. You have to know for a fact there are only 2 dogs around that tree to scratch them.

I don't like this rule at all. Ukc should of never allowed it. Its not that it cant be done right because it can. The problem is 50% of the judges cant even right the scores on the card right and keep proper time. I'm not trusting them to scratch 2 dogs without seeing them fighting.

My dog trees with a steady chop then breaks loose with a bunch of screaming and squalling then back to chopping. It sounds like a war is going on in there. The thing is he sounds the exact same way by himself. I know that with this rule I'll run into a judge one day that will try to scratch him and that is just his tree style. Needs done away with.

I have only seen 10 mean dogs in 40 years there is a difference in a mean dog and one that just donít like or agitated at anouther. Most of the ones I seen were back when we had non hunting judges on champion cast or mostly at higher level hunts. If you can see your dog is not wanting to get along with the other dogs in the cast you as a handler should withdraw and as a judge I will give you that oppertunity. But you force a mean dog on the cast and you think itís cute you will be scratched.


But we also got to realize dogs are animals they sense things we do not and the will defend their self. I go through a lot of dogs to find the ones that just back up and get out of the way.

Oh my goodness, you can't tie your dog up close to another dog without it getting into a fight? What happens when you put it into a dogbox with another dog? Or what happens when another dog is treeing right beside him?

This "poll" has been viewed 4,000 times but only 100 people have voted and it is a 50/50 tie on whether to change the rule or not.

I have hunted in 500 UKC casts (just guessing but sounds about right) and I have never seen dogs get scratched for fighting that were not fighting. On the other hand, I have heard a lot of dogs that I thought were fighting that didn't get scratched. So, leave the rule alone or you will just have a bunch of light broke fighting dogs. Yes there is always the theoretical chance that a judge could scratch dogs that weren't really fighting but in the real world, it just doesn't happen. "If it ain't broke don't fix it."

Ive said it before i'll say it again ...
If you're ok with dogs fighting or want to fight dogs there are places underground you can do it . This is the sport of COONHUNTING . If you yourself want to fight there are places for that as well . Let the rest of us who want COONHUNT , COONHUNT and the ones who dont care to or have knowledge enough to break a problem dog , well , your possibly gonna get scratched . Its your dice to roll . It is what it is . Pack a clean dog you'll have a clean card.

Im

Going to agree with Richard on this one. I been in several hunts in my 68 years and never seen dogs scratched from listening from a distance and only a very very few scratched when looking at them.
