I was the hunt test secretary for the Kansas city retriever club, our hunt test fill up with 60 master dogs in a few hours. When you put your hunt test on entry express, entry express will submit your judges to akc and akc approves your judges. Entry express puts your hunt test on to enter. It is hard to know when process will take place and your test will finalizes.
Two pros had 24 dogs each. I was unable to get my dog entered before it filled up in a couple of hours. Pros can enter too many dogs and scratch dogs before the test closes and replace the dog with another one or one of there friends dogs. We also only have about 5 people to work our test. Also there were no ams to help shoot birds.
