I think it may change numbers for a year or so.. but eventually the little guys like myself will quit going and the ďUKCĒ crowd will just become the same crowd you see at $ hunts now. Pkc hunts around her draw 3 dogs just like the UKC hunts. Itís just a different 3 guys.. the 3 $ guys will probably come to UKC but the 3 dust collector guys will probably disappear. If money was their motivation they wouldíve been at the Pkc hunts. Just my opinion.
Would they disappear because additional competition showed up?
Who is the little guy? What many fail to realize is that many of these guys are the little guy too, paying their own way. Which is why many like to hunt for at least their gas money back, they are hunting on their own dime. Working hard day in day out putting food on the table and raising kids just like nearly everyone else. Many raise and train their own dogs. Why would someone resent outside competition showing up unless they are so used to their small group collecting wins. Want to make it work...welcome them, feed them and don't make outsiders feel like outsiders and they may surprise you. I stated in a previous post that to qualify you have to have 5 wins, winning 75% of casts that's 7-8 hunts, 50% of casts would be 10 hunts.
Our club has lots of crossovers us included we've got those that have never hunted for money in their life right along side and having a good time and good hunts with those that have won everything there is on the other side multiple truck winners, world titles, nationals, SS and the $200,000+ $ winners, you name it they've won it.
I remember one time showing up at a hunt a few states away on our way home from somewhere else and guys pulling their entry slips off the table never speaking and walking out the door. The 2 that were left were super guys and one of them won the hunt that night. The others didn't even know who we were but we were outsiders. Don't ever be that hunter.
