Spring is officially in the air (and on the hood of the truck) and competition season is in full swing. While writing this, I am anxiously looking forward to the weekend ahead and the UKC Tournament of Champions Regions. The weather looks amazing and should make for some great hunting conditions for all involved in each Region. By the time you read this article, we will know who the big winners are already. I sure appreciate the continued interest in the TOC, and I hope that as the years go, the event gets bigger and better. Good luck getting your five cast wins to qualify for 2022. Hopefully, you have a few in your back pocket already.
Topics this month:
- Handing a Dog During Shine Time
- Scoring Trees Out of Order
Guided by the belief that dogs make a difference by being the best partner a human can have in the field, on the job, or in a competition event, UKC is a community for people and dogs to pursue excellence together. Founded in 1898, UKC has been dedicated to enhancing the lives of Dogs That Do More, and their owners, by providing essential resources to help owners and breeders make informed decisions. The dog-human bond is celebrated through family-friendly programs highlighting the instincts and heritage of purebred and mixed-breed dogs alike at over 15,000 licensed events annually.
