    I think this is an area where AKC hunt tests have missed the mark. It should be possible for the judges to require the honoring dog to retrieve a diversion bird. This is...

    There were 436 dogs qualified as of last week, Mike. With the 3 busiest months to go my guess is that 1,000 dogs give or take will be qualified by the July 31st deadline. That should be enough, don't...
