A UKC Licensed HRC Hunt must be hosted by an
approved UKC/HRC Club. All three categories,
Started, Seasoned and Finished, must be offered at
every hunt other than the International Grand Hunt
and the Upland Hunt.
There are two types of hunts, which are classified, by
type of Activity. The Activity types are “Regular Hunt” and
“Upland Hunt.” The maximum number of entries at a
Licensed Hunt is based upon the number of Judges
(flights) per category. Although the Club may declare a
lower number, the maximum number of entries a flight of
Judges can judge at a Licensed Hunt shall be:
Started - entries not to exceed 50 dogs per flight
Seasoned - entries not to exceed 40 dogs per flight
Finished - entries not to exceed 30 dogs per flight
Upland - entries not to exceed 30 dogs per flight.
Limiting the number of entries per flight will allow
hunting retrievers an opportunity to participate in each of
the hunting tests without being eliminated.
There is a collective limit of twelve (12) dogs per
Handler, per Hunt. Each Club has the option of lowering this limit. The limit must be published on the
Premium. Each dog is limited to one (1) entry per
Licensed Hunt. A dog participating in a Regular Hunt
(Started, Seasoned or Finished) may participate in a
separate Upland Hunt(s) on the same day.
handling more than 12 dogs or more than a Club's
lower designated limit, will forfeit all Championship
Points for all dogs handled by that Handler at that Hunt.
The Handler and the Hunt Secretary are jointly responsible for ensuring that point slips information is correct
and complete and the limits are not exceeded.
A separate entry fee for the Upland Test will be determined and collected by the host Club. The host Club will
submit the appropriate per dog assessment to the UKC
and the HRC, just as it does for the other test entries.
