My thoughts exactly.
I belong to two breed associations and neither one got my opinion or vote on anything.
So these guys just went to this meeting and voted their way???
My other question if these changes are so great and following in the proverbial footsteps of the other $KC's .
Why do the other $KC's only draw the same 3-5 guys at every hunt?
Why is UKC hiding/not publishing the entries numbers at the hunts?
I submit that we will not be able to use our own judgement instead of propaganda as to whether these new rules help or hurt entries.
There will be guys that no matter what the rules are will go to every hunt.
It will get to just like the other $KC's it will be the same 3-5 guys showing up at every hunt.
Many hard core comp hunters breed their dogs to fit the rules. Unfortunately in order to make dogs titled and win consistently they will have to likely be hot nosed, get deep ,lonely ,and not cover.
This is not my idea of a coon hound to own and pleasure hunt and still win in the nite hunts. So in the future whether a dog is titled or wins every cast will no longer have a significance for me .
Mr Dave Dean made the statement one time.
I try to breed my dogs to fit the rules. Every time I finally get them bred to win in the hunts they go and change the rules and I got to start all over.
IT SEEMS THAT EVERYTIME A BREED OR LINE OF DOGS GET POPULAR IT EVENTUALLY LEADS TO ITS RUINATION BY UNINFORMED PEOPLE BREEDING WITHOUT DOING THEIR RESEARCH FIRST.
