Hunt test rule check

Quick rule check. Are you familiar with the rules?


1. You are not allowed to use a choke chain collar under any circumstances.
2. In Master, the dog must complete a clean triple, no handles.
3. The handler is permitted to line the dog to the gun stations upon arriving to the line.
4. Under what circumstances is the handler permitted to wear white (white camo)?
5. Birds must be hung on a bird dryer behind the judges.




Please take a look and respond.

Sorry, I should have specified AKC hunt tests. I am not really familiar with HRC or NAHRA.

Good review this time of year!

1. Only junior gets to use a collar, and it has to be a flat buckle collar.
2. Senior is a double, not a triple. You can handle, so it doesnít have to be clean.
3. No lining the dog to any gunner station. Unlike field trials, where you can line the dog to each gunner station.
4. Dark or customary hunting attire, Iím not sure how white camo would work into that scenario?
5. I donít remember anything about hanging birds from a dryer.

Iím apprenticing judging senior this summer and judging one senior test this summer. Iíve judged a lot of junior tests. It will be nice to judge something different.

Thank you, I should have said clean triple in MH. Not giving my answers yet. Again, loaded question. And you are a ringer, you judge!

#4 is kind of obscure for most people so I'll start with that one.

White or white cammo is permissible when the hunting scenario is a Snow Goose Hunt. You would also likely see a field full of white decoys as well. This differs from a Field Trial as everyone is wearing white not just the handler and gunners. If you aren't entering a test occurring through the center of the country, you probably won't ever see this scenario.

This one can get very complicated for some people.

Thank you, that is when it is appropriate.

The problem occurs when the judge insists "There was a rule change specifying clean triple". Find the rule change.
