AKC Hunt Tests question (pointing dogs)

Recommended Posts

So I just tested my youngest dog this last weekend and was hoping to wrap up my Junior Hunt title. I had passed 3 of the 4 legs, and was hoping to make it a perfect 4 for 4, but unfortanetly I failed to get a passing score on my 4th leg.

Anyways my question now is this. There is another hunt test approaching and I asked the Hunt Test secretary that I only need one leg to get my title. If I was to sign up for both days and I got a pass the first day would I get my money back for the 2nd day if I didnt need to run, and I was told no.

Is this common? I did some more research on my own, and even got an answer from one of the judges that this is indeed the case. However I could take that entry fee for the 2nd day if it was not needed and apply it for a Senior Hunt Test the following day or a future test.

I could probably run in the Senior but my dog is pretty young yet and I know I could pass on the pointing, honor/backing but not sure how steady he would be to the flush. He is not %100 whoa broke yet so I am not sure if I would just be throwing my money away if I do jump right into the Senior tests.

The junior title to me should be a cake walk, but I as a handler probably cost my dog the title on his 4th run as I did not fire my starter pistol when I probably should have but thats a whole nother can of worms lol. So I know I can pass, but I may very well have another run of bad luck and not have a good run in the bird field.

They are correct, you will not be getting a refund.

You can either run the 2 day of JH stakes if you title the 1st, just for the fun of it... or

sign up for your SH for the second day. Run the JH the 1st with hopes of titling, and go to the SH and see how you do. As long as you do not finish a SH stake prior to getting your JH, you could always go back and finish that title at another event. I did this often, crossed registered my dogs. If they failed the lower stake but were in the mix in the higher stake until the last series, I would purposely scrub them if I wanted to go back and finish their lower title. Often if they would complete the 1st leg of the higher stake, I'd just keep moving forward on that title...

Good Luck!

LABS, I thought they had a scratch fee on the Hunt Test side of things?

Field trials we can scratch and just have the scratch fee (20-25 dollars) excluded from our refund.

THANKS

    • I never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason.   It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....    
    • How does the cold smoke accessory work? I wouldn't fathom doing any this time of year or does it have a built in ice tray to keep foods cool?. If not any grill or smoker would do the trick in the cold. I'm with others,  having room to hang for long smokes works the best. It is a nice concept though.
    • The fatty was good! Got up at 6:30 am Friday morning to put it on the pellet grill.    
    • Ants are just trying to make a livin.
    • Buy an ant moat. Feeder hangs underneath it. Ants can’t cross the water. While I have never used this, I used to put my cup of grape jelly on a small plate, filled with water. Never had a problem with ants. So, in theory, the moat should work just the same.
    • I grease the pole with Mentholatum 
    • Gotta love wings!! Had to see what this reverse searing is about. Pork chops off to the side grabbing natural hardwood smoke then over the heat... tasty. 
    • Did a bunch of wings in the steam pot for 15 minutes yesterday. Let them cool and then brushed with oil and rub. Left uncovered overnight in the fridge. Tonight I grilled them indirectly over some charcoal and apple pellets in the smoker tube. Finished them off over the coals to get them crispy:
    • I'd just take a $20 loss and use the proper stuff your outboard is specified for.    It's just not worth it.   I feel like this falls into one of those "if you have to ask the answer is no" sort of things.
    • I have a half gallon of arctic cat APV oil, and was woundering if this can be used in my oil injected 2 stroke Yamaha 200HPDI? I bought a new sled this winter that requires C-TECH2 oil, so I have a half gallon of 45$ oil just sitting in my garage.
