The required 5 cws required to qualify for zones would bring all the grnts out that in the past just go hunt 1 or 2 rqes just to get qualified. now with ntchs and grnts hunting together in even the small hunts under the new rules.. i think the competition will be a lil harder requiring people to hunt a few more to have a chance to get a piece of the final four purse which would be a great amount.
You make some good points and I don't disagree with your numbers. But the title of your thread was "Idea to bring hunters to the clubs".
At the clubs in my area, and there are a 8-10 of them within an hour, you pay a $20 entry fee and your dog puts up the highest score of the hunt, the prize you win is absolutely nothing. Now, charge them another $10 more and the winner goes home with........absolutely nothing. That extra $10 isn't bringing in more dogs but it will cost you some entries.
Why do some clubs in the same area draw better than others? Good hunts vs bad hunts. You really wanna increase entries? Quit scheming and concentrate on top notch guides putting casts in top notch hunting. Hand that card to good, honest judges or hand it to a competent non-hunting judge. Good hunts are what brings in entries. If your club doesn't have any good guides/judges or just doesn't have good hunting ground available, close your doors and give the other clubs a boost.
