    Arrow KCHRC test-water advisory!

    Due to the torrential downpours that we have been getting these last few weeks and the potential for more rain this week, we are advising those entered in the hunt tests this Memorial weekend to wear their rubbers!
    Started~ knee boots advised
    Seasoned~ hip waders recommended
    Finished~ full chest waders a must!!!!

    Looking for dry land!

    Surely, they can find an area to run a finished test where the handlers don't have to wear waders in +80 heat. I guess this means the dogs will be on platforms or in boats and will be swimming the whole time....

    Not sure on what the setups will look like yet, going today and tomorrow to help blaze trails if needed. We have a lot of high grass, ticks, thorny brush, and now most of our islands and pennisulas are under water. Since this is public land corp land, we also usually have to contend with their mowing plans. We have scouted "perfect" areas before and come back three days later to find it looking like a golf course. We also have to contend with the Holiday weekend and campers, fishing in most of the "good" coves, and lack of parking. We are trying to find areas for all three tests in a sort of centralized area so that multiple stake handlers do not have to drive that far between stakes, and so that bathroom facilities will be available for those that do not want to go all naturale~. So it is best to come prepared for most case scenario, and sorry, but there's nothing we can do about the weather! We do promise to have a lot of good food (whole hog), fun games, great judges, and an all around good time with our banquet on Saturday.

    At least we don't have them bayou lizards!!!!!!!!!

    Isn't it great to use public land on memorial day for HT...at least you can use poppers. Around here, you can't in some areas. On a positive note, if we wear waders, the ticks will be less of an issue

    It wouldn't be an HRC test without having to clomp through a little mud and water. Good luck with your test. We are starting to dry out up here but our back to back test weekend is going to give us at least a few stuck vehicles which yours truly will be pulling out.

    Maybe for some, others may need a little MORE protection! Others, like Bubba, could get by with golashes or crocs.
