My first field dog started in hunt tests going all the way through from JH on up. I then started trials with him and he became AFC Glenhaven Devil's Advocate UDT MH OS FDHF. I was much younger and had more energy therefore the various titles.
I also took two FC/AFC one Golden, one Lab---FC/AFC Glenhaven Htrs Mn Baronet MH OS FDHD and FC/AFC Yellowstone's Dust Devil MH and went from field trials to hunt tests. They loved it. Have taken a lot of QAA dogs and put MH titles on them over the years. Hunt tests actually helped Twist learn to do much better check down birds at trials. The three dogs named qualified for various Nationals as well.
Bart and Twist thought the hunt tests were being put on for their own personal enjoyment and really had fun. There are some field trial competitors in the Southern California area that also run hunt tests with their competitive trial dogs.
