The only loophole is if the tree is circled. If your dog is there when the cast arrives, you will have to vote to circle the tree or your dog will get his strike plus assigned tree points minused.
And this wording doesnt address the dog that comes into a tree after the cast arrives. They will still get a free pass.
With all of these strike points getting minused everyone will want a silent track dog that is independent to a fault. Is that what the majority of UKC competition coonhunters wants? I guess that is why they voted to allow them.
I would guess that the majority of the rules committee decided that if a dog was not at a tree within 3 minutes he A. Wasn't running that track and me'tooed dogs that put in the work or B. Was entirely to slow and did not deserve any plus points on that tree.
Now why they didn't include circle trees or get rid of or at least change that saved by the judge circle points 5(b) your guess is as good as mine who knows. Maybe in the final tweeking that happens because certain rule changes affect others we will find out.
