Are Hunt Tests For Me?

This is the exact question I asked myself almost 3 years ago.  My answer was no.  I said, “I don’t need another hobby.  I am already pushing it with as much fishing and hunting as I do now.”  I was wrong.

I wasn’t wrong because I absolutely love hunt tests.  I was wrong because all of the training that you put into your dog/handler relationship leaves you with an exceptional hunting companion.  So, it’s not so much about the hunt tests, it is about the group I train with.  The learning relationships I have established with other handlers in the club has made it all worthwhile.  And, I would not want to leave out the friendships that have been forged.

I absolutely cannot wait until we all join up again in the spring to knock the rust off the dogs and us, the handlers.  Until then, its drills in the snow.
