Pat yes you are correct but I have asked this same question to a long time field director and got a different answer. This is one reason this rule needs clarification. As of right now there is nothing stopping a non-hunting judge (we've had some doozies) from scratching all dogs 1-4 dogs in a cast from a far with no way of being 100% sure of what's going on. There could be blowing that is not a dog fight which is not scratchable unless interference has happened. They could be fighting a coon. Unless you see it you don't know a thing only suspect.
The next on the list is #13 scratch for fighting while off leash until the completion of hunt. So if some Male in the dog box greets a female by smelling her hind end and she takes it unkindly if #13 were to pass she would be scratched if off the leash not in the box or tangled up in a dog leash if someone ties their dog together on a ball hitch.
