Not being consistent on judging and picking up dogs for no reason is why PP attendance in down. I have seen judges change there opinions week to week depending on who were or were not at the hunt. I think dogs can run both pp and lp, it just depends on the dog and how you run them. Judging dogs that are not leading the pack is one of the big problems. How do you know the dog out front is messing up if you are not judging him and if he is so bad why is he not in the truck. If the dog out front is not messing up then the rest of the pack is running a covered track. The judges always say the dog out front is running to fast to judge. Then how do you keep up with lp dogs?
