UKC Cur & Feist Licensed Hunt Format

Revised January 1, 2008

Note: There are currently two Hunt Format options for Cur/Feist events. Unless specifically noted in the advertising or listing of an event, all events will be run under the Standard Hunt Format. Elimination Style Hunt Format events must be pre-approved by UKC.

Standard Hunt Format

Dogs are drawn out into three categories based on their current Championship Points standing at United Kennel Club. The three divisions are Registered, Champions and Grand Champions. Dogs must compete in their own division. Placements in each division will be awarded based on one round of competition. Placements will be determined in accordance with the UKC Licensed Cur & Feist Event Honor Rules. If the club wishes to run division winners against one another in order to award special Championship honors, it is considered a non-licensed category for which UKC is not responsible.

Elimination Style Hunt Format

In the elimination style format, all three categories (Registered, Champions, and Grands) are drawn out and compete together. First round plus point cast winners are to be drawn into a second round to hunt for final placement. The top ten dogs regardless of category will be placed according to score. Placement is determined; first by order of second round plus point cast winners (based on second round score). Next, by order of second round non-cast winners (based on second round score). A dog must be a first round plus point cast winner in order to place. Registered dogs placing first through third will receive a first place win. Registered dogs placing third through tenth will receive a third place win. Nite Champions placing first through tenth will receive a Nite Champion win. Grand Champions placing first through tenth will receive a Grand Champion win.
