Please note the following updates to the Youth Guide Policy, the changes are underlined below.
Rule 3.F. Guide - Hunt Director should ask entrants if they are willing to guide their cast. All hunting and non-hunting guides used must be drawn to casts at random. Those selected as hunting guides must guide their cast without assistance from any other individual. Hunting guides arranging for another person to guide their cast is strictly prohibited, violators must be reported and those involved are subject to disciplinary action. The PKC Youth Program allows exceptions to this rule, please see Youth Program section. Hunting area should be close enough to allow the cast to complete the hunt and return to the clubhouse before the deadline. If possible, casting ground should be where the cast can compete safely for the entire hunt without calling time-out or moving. Clubs should use area "Hunting Guides" first, area "Non-Hunting Guides" second and out of area "Hunting Guides" as the third option. No person will be permitted to guide a cast in a raccoon controlled environment or enclosed pen.
(Page 30 Blue Book) HUNTING AND NON-HUNTING GUIDES IN YOUTH CASTS
Hunting and Non-Hunting Guides may be used for Youth Casts. Youth that are able to guide their own cast, should be used first. Non-Hunting Guides provided by the sponsoring club, should be used second. As a third option, the parent or legal guardian of a Youth Handler may guide their youth’s cast. If a parent or legal guardian is going to be used as the guide, the Hunt Director must be informed when the youth is entered.
