Deleted Points, is the correct answer.
Wow, I'm shocked so many missed this one. Especially, when we provided a link to the rules to look it up, if there's any question. Someone is not doing enough (rule) reading.
Rule 5(e) applies. The correct answer is; deleted points.
5. CIRCLED AND DELETED POINTS
(a) When dog strikes and trees on a tree or a hole in the ground where there
could be a coon, yet Judge does not see coon and no off game is seen. NOTE:
In case of running coon in a hole or place of refuge other than a tree, handler
may call dog treed. However, if not called treed, cast may proceed to general
area, and track can be considered finished if dogs, by actions either tree barking
or otherwise, show to the satisfaction of the Judge, coon to be there. One
dog must show end of trail. For dogs declared treed in a hole or tile, see Rule
3(b) or 4(g), if applicable.
(b) No dog to receive minus points for coming into tree after Judge arrives
unless a coon is seen and the dogs treeing are awarded plus points.
(c) If half the cast votes to plus and half the cast votes to circle a tree.
(d) If a squirrel is seen on a den tree (must have visible hole large enough for a coon
to enter into) or tree has a nest, or a place of refuge where a coon could be hidden.
(e) If half the cast votes to circle and half the cast votes to minus a tree.
(f) If dogs are trailing when time is out.
(g) If Judge has to call time out in accordance with Rule 7.
(h) When dog trees on a tree or coon previously scored. (Cast may go to tree without
dogs being declared treed, if majority of cast agree, when hunting Judges are used.)
(i) When dog that is shut out* comes into tree shut out on. Refer to 3(e).
