Surely you do not believe that saying! You tell me that a cast hunting in thin coons and the winner scoring on 1 coons is inferior to a dog hunting in thick coons scoring on more than 1 coons. I stand by my comment that all any dog can do is beat the other dogs in their cast. It's absurd to just compare scores seeing how all casts are NOT hunting together or on the same hunting grounds. Hunting off feeders and scoring a big score proves nothing, as a started dog can do that. Hunts like the Winter Classic should at least be based on the Grand American format top 4 double cast winners hunting to determine the Winner. Dave

You logic is flawed to say the least. Show me any dog that can do more than win their cast. Treeing 1 coons or 10 in 2 hours depends just as much on the coons population as the dogs ability. If a dog wins it's cast with 1 coons it still beats the other dogs in it's cast. NO DOG can do any better than that. Comparing cast winners is WAY better than comparing high scores as score depends on coons population where the cast hunts. Compare Apple's to Apple's not Apple's to Oranges. How many times have you seen the same dogs score be high or low on different nights in the same hunt due to different hunting ground? Basing a winner on high score in one cast is insane. Dave
