I donít know about your state. But, in S.C. the small hunts are killing these clubs. The small hunts cost the clubs money, never pay the hunt packages much less the monthly bills. Then to top it off I donít remember the last MOH that I saw work a hunt without charging the club. Hunt directors that can hunt will do it for FREE! I know I will.
Ken I have put many dollars out of my own pocket into the club here, just to pay UKC. I don't charge anything to MOH, but some places will insist you take something for gas. As for the hunt director, its nothing but a direct copy of what PKC, AKC, and the rest do without letting them hunt. Under the Current format, hunting them just does not fit. That was brought up under the "cons" in another post. I have traveled far and wide, and I have never seen it work as its supposed to work, when questions come back or someone is lost. Personally, the lost or separated requirement should be dropped I think. Today's GPS world will get you back to the club, and most times the one that's separated is of their own doing. As for as the hunt director panels goes, that's a totally different story. Most, not everyone, but most that I have seen is made up of folks that hunted 20 years ago and do not know the rules, or they are on another cast that has came back, but if they rule the right way, they lose the top spot etc. Hardly ever is it done right, or ruled right by the rules. That is my beef. IF the HUNT DIRECTOR format is so great, why is it UKC will not use it for any of their hunts they put own? Its because they know the problem with it also, but it is easier on the smaller clubs to use a director. Using one is not a crime, its just not done the right way and on the up and up as it should be most times. I have been party to a question that the cook who had never comp hunted was on the panel to get the 3rd person needed. Luckily thy can understand English and read it too when the card was turned over and the rule read to them. Some can't even do that right, or just won't look. NOT me. I will take my chances with the moh and then appeal from there if needed. You are right about greedy moh's charging for services. It happens here too.
