I'm aware that the best you can do is beat the dogs in your cast but if placing dogs by their score is a joke what if the club is giving away a dog box or light, declaring King or Queen of The hunt or even determining the world champion? How would you handle that? Draw numbers out of a hat or draw high card? Seems a score would matter at times.
That is the mentality that has been for to long. The only true way is by elimination style hunts for larger events. And for the record... I will stick with that at the UKC World hunt the 3 high scoring dogs of Friday's early round moving on to the finals needs done away with. To prove the point this years World Champion was sent back out to hunt late while 3 others that he went on to beat were automatically moved to the finals while he had to hunt again to get there. Were they better because of their score early Friday? On that weekend no. Many variables go into winning a cast, overall scores are quite often dependent upon the ground you have to hunt. This is the reason that double cast wins have always thought to be more important than a one night high score.
Some of the larger hunts may need to rethink their way of doing some things in crowning champions.
