As a PKC Member, you share in the responsibility of assuring that the hunts you attend are conducted properly within the PKC Rules and Policies. There are many PKC Members like yourself that are running up and down the roads several nights a week spending lots of time, energy and hard earned money to compete in the State, Breed and National Races, as well as, running for the elusive “Truck Tickets”. You certainly do not want unscrupulous hunters cutting corners, bending rules and doing whatever possible to diminish your chances of winning what you have rightfully earned, just so they can sell a dog or benefit in some other ways from an undeserved moment in the spotlight.
When you enter a PKC Open Event, watch the clock, entries may not be taken more than thirty (30) minutes after the advertised deadline. If possible, judges who are not members of the sponsoring club should be used and club members who live in the local area should serve as hunting guides. Make absolutely sure the selected judges are called up to randomly and blindly draw their guide and other cast members in front of all members present.
If you observe Hunt Directors not following the PKC Cast Drawing Procedures outlined on page #24 of your Blue Book, step up and let the Hunt Director know that these errors need to be corrected before casts are sent to the woods. Please DO NOT leave the clubhouse until the Hunt Director announces how many dogs are entered and what the payout is. It is very important that you notify the PKC Staff of any discrepancies right away, so that they may be corrected. Please ask the Hunt Director to send the hunt
report to PKC the morning after the hunt if at all possible.
Following each PKC hunt that you attend, win or loose, please check the Hunt Results frequently: http://www.prohound.com/3549-listresults/?View=C
This results page is updated every day as the hunt reports come in and they can be sorted by state and date. Make absolutely sure that the online hunt results reflect the exact same number of entries that were at the club the night you hunted. If you see an inaccurate number of entries on the hunt results page, contact PKC with details immediately.
