Here is the new rule.
6(b) For fighting or attempting to fight*, when off-leash
during the hunt, including any time-out periods.
When the aggressive dog is known, scratch the
aggressor only. If not known, scratch dogs involved.
Withdrawing to avoid dog being reported for
fighting is not permitted.
Attempting to Fight: 1) Showing aggressive behavior and
2) interfering with another dog(s) during the authority of
the Judge. (This rule definition is has not changed in any way.)
I know some of you protesters are the same ones that did not want any changes made to help prevent babbling, did not want the rule changes to allow for silent dogs to not be scratched and wanted questions to be placed on the card after the situation took place and did not believe that off game should be seen to scratch even though we have to see coons to plus. If memory serves me right a couple of you had an on board disagreement over something about tied out dogs getting in a dog fight. Well now neither is scratched but you as individuals could still be wrote up for misconduct if it came to that.
*Also, for the record the scratch questions Dalton referenced in his above post did not pertain to anything to do with fighting or aggression, it was someone not knowing the rules or just trying hail Mary passes as the only way to win (it didn't work). I personally had never seen the likes of grasping at straws questions like I witnessed in setting at Oaks and the WC as I saw this year. It was insanity some of the questions that came in.
Competition coonhunting should not be about 75 ways to scratch an opponent, coondog up! I for one am glad that several scratching offenses are gone and several other rule changes benefit the dog treeing coons and eliminated petty rules that were more harmful to the new comers.
Many of you need to go with Cheyenne's philosophy that some you win, some you lose but there will be another every night but Sunday. Go into it with a good attitude instead of a win at all costs or that I'm going to get cheated chip on your shoulder, the outcome may just surprise you.
