    Default attire for hunt tests

    What would the correct attire for a nahra hunt test ? Can I get away with just a camo shirt or do I have to be dressed in camo from head to toe ? What about for a akc hunt test ?

    Tex -

    A camo shirt is recommended. Brown, tan, green, etc. all are ok as well. Jeans are fine but tan or green or brown pants are preferable. Basically wear what you'd wear for a fall duck hunt and you'll be fine.

    Same for NAHRA as AKC.

    Don't forget the camo makeup on your face and arms.



    Bug spray

    30 SPF or greater sunblock for face, nose, and ears.

    Don't forget the Kentucky Fried Chicken for the judges.

    Baby wipes for the judges to clean their hands before giving them the chicken.

    I've never been to a NAHRA test, but for AKC and HRC, I mostly use B F Goodrich.
