2015 HOY and Regional HOY Points!! - 03/25/15 08:52 PM

I want to clarify that the Original HOY Points and HOY Regional point structure from previous years are in tact, with only one change.

The Change to the format is as follows:
ALL Big 6 Hunts points will count in the region of the ADDRESS of the hound's listed owner at the time of the hunt. This is the only change to the format of either of the HOY categories (national & regional). If a hound is sold during the year, those points will not move to the new owner's region (points are only awarded to the owner listed at the time of hunt).

This change is simply to recognize ALL Big 6 Hunts as the "neutral" standing that they have been for years. This keeps all big 6 hunts in the same category as they were intended to be. It is our hope that this change will spike continued growth in our sport and passion.

We think it will be a good idea. I think it will draw more people to the bigger hunts, since they will count for any reagion and the prizes for the ppba gives people more chances.

How about a clarification on the new strike rule or how a dog can or can't be minus for leaving a strike area. . A lot of confusion and discussion regarding this at the last hunt I attended (3-21-2015).

Found it on the newly posted 2015 rules on the PP page.

It's a shame that Progressive Pack is now going the route of the UKC night hunts , and is now promoting pop off dogs, babblers, and automatic strike dogs.
