This month, we will be talking about a few simple tricks to help clubs increase participation at their scheduled Hunt Test events. Every club across the continental United States, regardless of how successful or otherwise, has asked the same question one time or another in the history of its existence. “How do we draw more dogs?” That is the million dollar question!

06/04/2014: Hunt Test-Imonial

We had a Hunt Test last Friday night. There had not been one at the club for a few years. We were not sure what to expect. We had nine dogs, of which four passed. Grand Nites we thought would pass did not. Registered dogs we did not think would pass did. We had some dogs tree multiple coons, and some tree slick. We had some dogs change their mind about hunting and go back to the truck and...
