After reading Rosco's post on judging advice, I think it is time to lay out some situations for open discussion. Everyone welcome to add imput so we may be enlightened. Everyone is now in the Judges Position. First cast: 6 hounds Hounds are cast to search and after a few minutes the hounds are actually working cover and you notice the white collar is just following along behind the green and blue who are hunting like Indians. Red,Yellow and Orange are working along with the gallery but seem to hunt fair.A rabbit is jumped by the gallery and pack is placed on this rabbit. All hounds are in the pack and white is scoring heavily as is green and blue. Blue tends to rush to the front coming off the checks and can carry the front better than anything in the pack. Red, Orange and Yellow are fighting to control the back of the race and aren't getting much done. Green stays closer on the checks and tends to run 2nd Slot and 3rd but can cut the white and Blue at times. White gets wider than the other hounds quicker on checks and gets most of the hard checks. Now what would you do with this pack and try to convince me as your judging partner?
