    Sorry, Bridget, I was trying to be funny (the whole "punked" thing.) What I was really doing was trying to see who the judges were... searched on your name and didn't come up with anything. Still doesn't come up, but I found it searching for AKC hunt tests in MD on the weekend in question. Maybe that kind of info just doesn't show up until the results are finalized...

    Hey, you got 6 pages out of it!!!

    I was at a Junior test a year ago when two judges who clearly didn't know the rules told handlers all the dogs HAD to be brought to the line on a slip lead. Slip leads are disallowed in Junior. That said, I don't get why they're disallowed but the rule is the rule and most there didn't have slip leads so they had to loop their leads through the handles to make them.

    My co-judge and I hooked a boatload of JH folks after pulling a rulebook out during our 1st series scenario to confirm that everyone was aware of the just-released Supplement which allowed us the discretion to include ".... a junior land or water blind not to exceed 50 yds". Someone had conveniently left a piece of orange tape out in the middle of the field away from our marks which only further sucker-ized most in the crowd. Jaws dropped (pro's and ams), mumbles ensued. Our point, we soon explained since we could barely keep a straight face, was to Know Thy Rulebook! Don't be afraid to ask questions or call bs!

    I can assure you that if I'm ever in a judging situation where a significant rules change was just then being "announced", I'll be packing written proof.

    Depends on whom you are planning to choke, and whether there is a quiet back road to dump the body.
