Hang on a sec... Not long ago I saw a post asking if someone could have a jr handle a dog at a lower level even though they had already finished a title higher. The answer was that in both AKC and UKC, they could, wouldn't receive anything but that the child would enjoy the ribbon. So by your answer, does that mean they are ineligible to enter the lower level or that any passes actually don't count because they have the higher title?
My answer was regarding handlers over 18.A dog that has been recorded as a Master Hunter
may continue to enter Junior, Senior, and Master
Hunting Tests, provided handlers are under age 18 at the
beginning of the test level entered, but no further Junior,
Senior, or Master Hunter certificates will be issued.
