I don't think it's entirely gone........yet........maybe. I don't know the politics behind it as some have claimed UKC is abandoning the program.......I don't know and do not have an opinion on UKC plans going forward. I will say that the PP program had a lot of "bigger name" people involved early on. They traveled well building the program and looked to be growing. I think the biggest thing to hurt PP was it was a program that was accepted regionally more than nationally as with any program starting up rather it be field trials, racing, or whatever. The Mid-Atlantic region of VA, Eastern WV, and MD has/had a fairly good following. It seems to be growing in MO, IL, AR and that part of the country. Ohio looks to be holding hunts still. I could see the Mid-Atlantic firing back up if the support from UKC will be there. I think people are worried about pouring money into a program that may not be here a year or two from now. It's really hard to tell what will happen with the program as I'm sure there are some who are in the know.
