If any moh ruling is appealed it is to a panel. The hunt director simply cuts out the middleman.
In years of having those infamous $ hunts we have had to assemble 2 panels to hear a question, they know the rules upside down and side ways. We have very few questions ever come in at any local events around here ever even the UKC hunts. I recall two in the past year not at our club. One on a question on driving to score dogs (still not found in the rules) & one a guy still wanted to question Cheyenne even after he showed him the rule on the back of the card he just had to hear it from the MOH lol. In multiple years of hosting the zones I believe Mr. Tim has had one question come in. Now I will say that in setting around AO and the WC I have never before seen the likes of frivolous grasping at straws questions in my life! Maybe this very few questions is not typical of all areas of the country??
It seems that around here most hunters seem to display an excellent level of professionalism and sportsmanship At our club we have a MOH that volunteers his time (thank you Shawn) and as almost always a few people hanging out visiting, not all clubs are like ours. Even at ours I sometimes act as a hunt director if he wants to hunt and also at federation events that don't require a MOH so all who wish to compete can saving money that we can give away for something else. Not all clubs have a Jennifer. Many have more overhead and are taking turns sitting in an empty club house when they would be an extra entry or guide.
In order for UKC to ever allow hunt directors to hunt I urge you hunters to act with more professionalism and sportsmanship. LEARN the rules and apply them correctly. QUIT bringing in frivolous questions. REMEMBER there is a hunt of some kind somewhere every night but Sunday your not going to win them all.
Until UKC quits getting a bunch of calls on Monday's and appeals they will not allow hunt directors to hunt regardless of how well it has worked for us in other registries. We would like to blame the rules committee because they should realise that a hunt director can't seat a panel until enough have returned to seat a panel. We can also place blame on those who need to take a look in the mirror. Any who seem to have issues arise on nearly every cast they are on and think they are consistently cheated are the reason that this rule didn't and won't pass as much as many of us would like it to be an option. We all know someone like this... it's never their fault or their dogs, they never just get beat they always got cheated. If UKC no longer has to deal with on a daily basis the headaches of daily issues with problem hunters the likelihood it changes is slim. Be part of the solution. At the club level appoint good knowledgeable judges and teach your young and new comers through these people. As an individual learn the rules and practice good sportsmanship, everything will go smoother. If these things happen maybe at the next rule change year we can get this passed!
