I said it before(most of this had already been hashed out in the deleted thread) but I'll say it again. A hunt test should NEVER favor a pro over an amateur handler...NEVER. I'm not anti pro at all but it wasn't the intent of the hunt tests, in fact I would argue that the intent was partly to get away from pros all together. Pro's are in the game to stay but to sacrifice any amateur handler that wants to play to allow a pro to run a string of dogs is wrong in every way.
Fair or not the random draw hurts everyone and still risks leaving the local guy out of his nearby tests
A limit to the number a handler can enter each day until full would work but some pros may prefer just being all in or all out. Which brings us to the simplest and IMO best way to do it, Owner/amateur/handlers get a day or two to enter before a pro can. That way the amateur gets his 1 or 2 dogs in, then the pros get to see who has the best computer skills. If they don't get in, they move to the next test even if they have to drive to get there instead of only getting a few of their dogs in before it fills.
