Was gonna post sooner but site went down so no one missed any thing .
Guys did well sorting things out and scoring things.
The biggest problem incurred at this tree was with dog D and handler.
He refused to Award dog D minus of any kind. It came away from this tree smelling like a rose with no minus of any kind.
I know some stated that no split was called. It was however obvious. Rules state when obvious/ judges decision . So Dog D was treed by Handler when that dog treed that was about 50-80 yards away. There was never any discussion about any dogs being incorrectly called.
AAnnnddd Dog D handler was also the hunting judge on this cast.
Dog A and Dog D handlers hunt together regularly .Both admitted after the fact that they have a hard time telling their dogs apart after the fact.
This was not the first time they called each others dogs on this night but it was not some what provable until this tree. It also was not the first time Dog D had split the other time was 150 yards and left without taking minus.
Not my first rodeo. Been around for awhile and titled a few .
Now lessons can always be learned and without further elaborations on anything else that happened this night because this tree was mild. LOL.
RULE 1 ... NEVER ,EVER trust the judge !!!
Always check the score card "AFTER EACH" scoring event.
Not only to make sure things are scored correctly but as they were called.
RULE 2 …. NEVER,EVER get complacent . SEE RULE 1 !!
Just because a guy has a MOH license does not mean they know the rules or will score things correctly.
RULE 3... NEVER ,EVER trust a person you draw out with that you thought to be a friend to be honest and score things correctly (honestly). SEE RULE 1 !!!
IT SEEMS THAT EVERYTIME A BREED OR LINE OF DOGS GET POPULAR IT EVENTUALLY LEADS TO ITS RUINATION BY UNINFORMED PEOPLE BREEDING WITHOUT DOING THEIR RESEARCH FIRST.
