Not a slick handling move, but just what happened.... Was in a Nite Champion cast in the early 1990's... My dog had -200 and another dog in the cast had +200. Ten minutes to hunt, and the handler of the other dog lets his backup handler take the reins, not that it really mattered. My dog gets 1st strike, and his dog peels off to the side and split-trees... 2nd strike and 1st tree = 200 pts. Then my dog comes treed over where she struck, and i treed her... 1st strike and tree for 225.... The other dog shuts up and comes to my dog's tree -- which has a coon in it -- and takes 200- while I got 225+, winning the cast with 25+... So, I never withdraw a dog when I am within 400 pts. Not slick handling, but some said so.... I just gave the dog the credit for having a coon.... And no, we did not pick up a Nite Champion win, but we did win the cast! UKC hunt....
