The dog that trees a coon first gets awarded 125 points, the dog that trees second only gets 75 points. What does it matter how much later his handler trees him? What if a dog is "awarded next available" and is minused? Will he get 75 or 25 minus?
Richard the better question is which judges do you trust to determine when ol Boone is running a deer? What criteria do they use to make this determination? Coons must be seen to score with plus. Why have the criteria different for a dog being minused or scratched? Is a dog that is "running off game" really a threat to a dog that is treeing coons? It is a know fact that some dogs run coon tracks at a much higher rate of speed than others. Should a slower moving dog be scratched because a judge that has never hunted with it be able to scratch because he believes it is cold trailing a coyote? Should a fast track dog be scratched because it is believed he is running deer?
