josh i have judged pp at a fun hunt and never opted to take the test i have judged little pack and taken the test. to me as a little pack judge and master of hounds we go with the hounds and score the plus points unless we have to minuse in pp it looks like its the other way around. just a small observation cause i don't go but to say one or two a year. i have never failed to enjoy myself when i've been to one. remember the biggest majority of pp hunters use to be lp hunters so i do know alot of the guys that hunt it so i do enjoy the hunts. that is what its all about. i could careless if i win would just like to compete as a beagler not necessary as a little packer or a pp hunter. i don't mind getting picked up as long as its for the right reason.
