I hunt in some pretty rough country. As an example of why I would like to see some kind of rule, I was on a cast one night where a dog got treed with a coon. It was in a very rough hollow. We led her back up on top where we could hear one of the dogs. The dog we could hear was an idiot and never made a tree but he kept it where the other could be cut loose. Long story short she ended up going back 4 times and killed the whole 2 hours on the same coon. We never got to get to where we could hear except the one idiot dog all night. After the hunt we went and got the other 2 off 2 different trees in different hollows.
Great example of dogs killing hunt time. We're out there to coonhunt not go get gather the same dog over and over. This change still gives 2 chances before the dog is scratched on the 3rd.
Rules as of now....
Scratch a dog for things unseen.
Scratch for inadvertantly blowing a squaller.
Scratch for not knowing how to fill a card out even if not qualified to carry it.
Circle possums when dog comes in late.
Award 75 points to dogs that put little effort and come in upto 4.59 on trees.
Walk however far your comfortable to re-cut dogs letting handlers walk out hunts or lead toward dogs that have been doing the work all night.
Let dogs return to the same tree as many times as they want. Lol.
The above are several reasons that change is needed and needed a long time ago. It has nothing to do with what everyone else does.
Ukc and several others are doing everything they can to better the registration but too many are set in their ways. Several rules never made sense in the first place.
Allen needs a pen and the ability for executive orders!
For every hunter that may be lost by changes they will pick up many others. The rules of a game should never be complicated. A little common sense goes a long ways, and a few here now are lacking.
