    Not saying you can't say Mark, as in 'get ready, birds are coming", you cannot however point out a gun station and give the command. Big difference.

    Pointing out the gun stations before signaling you are ready, is prohibited. Whether it be with a hand, gun barrel or verbal "good", "mark", "watch" or "right there". You can't do it. Bring your...

    The whole limited entry competition to get entered turned me off to the point that I recently chose not to enter any more AKC hunt tests. Strictly Field Trials from here on out. Raise the entry...

    Dave, You sure it wasn't just an itchy trigger finger from trying to quickly enter master tests on EE? I hear that's one of the symptoms.

    My dogs get distracted by sandwiches and the crinkle of potato chip bags. Perhaps AKC should ban all forms of food for judges, workers and gallery on-lookers at events!

    That's great, glad to hear he's one of the do-ers! My post wasn't intended to call out Travis, but I see many posts from folks that don't help, chair or judge with potential solutions to problems...

    I agree with Mark, Paul and John. I judge all levels of both Hunt Tests and Field Trials as well as work at and chair many other events. Many others have taken their turn in the chair for me to...

    After discovering that a stubborn and recurring dry patch of skin on my ear was actually basal cell carcinoma a couple years ago, I had to have a good chunk of the top of my ear cut out. Thankfully...

    As Wayne said, normally a wipe out, wiper or eraser bird is shorter than the other marks and is thrown across the test, over the line(s) to one or more of the longer birds. The excitement...

    Prior to limited tests, many clubs would only list one set of Master judges and if entries exceeded 60 at the close, clubs would scramble to get 2 more judges in order to split. Many folks ended up...

    Some FT'S may start with 100+ dogs, but they certainly don't end that way. You're comparing apples and oranges. FT'S are a competitive elimination event, therfore many dogs never see the 2nd, 3rd...

    I know it seems like a big deal to you now, but trust me. If you stay in this crazy game long enough, you'll get screwed a few times and be given gifts a few times. Junior is just the tip of the...

    An O/H is an O/H, whether it's a minor or major stake. Same concept. It limits competition to those who actually own the dog. As for your numbers, I think you have them backwards. Most O/,...

    So, can we assume your thoughts are similar when considering O/H Amateur stakes? Perhaps those points shouldn't count when striving for the AFC title too. Seriously. Your argument makes no sense.

    I'm not worthy! Besides, Sarah Shull here in MI would be hard to beat! She won the Midwest Qual with her Curly dog Rhino a little over a year ago! Super nice dog and equally capable handler!
