    I agree with your first statement regarding diversion birds. Could you please show me where it states that poison birds must be retrieved per HT rules? I don't see HT rules even use the term...

    Hey DeWitt,

    I will tell that Co-ownership can be legit and not just to get around rules. Just because you and others have manipulated it, doesn't mean we all have or will. So your thoughts are...
