Welcome to a new year everybody! I know it's late but I hope everyone had a wonderful holidays and is doing well.

As a lot of you have noticed, the Hunting Club has been down this year, and will continue to be for a massive overhaul and updates. This post is just to give you a sneak peek of all the stuff coming in the new year! Please feel free to post below if you have any questions, comments or concerns!

New Breed Entries!
Just as it sounds, we will going through and entering new accepted breeds into the registry! If you have some currently, please post them here and we'll look into them!




Breeds In Progress Program
This program will be getting its feet under itself in the new year, and will include conformation shows for breeds in progress,  along with specially designed activity shows that'll help you prove your new hunting breeds in Breed specific sports, and instinct testing. Note, we will accept new breeds NOW so we can get things set up! Please post the name of any hunting dogs you are creating below and a link to their creation post and I'll add them with the update!




Hunting Certifications:

These will be fun activities that can earn you club titles, but not take away from showing! These are tests that are designed to show your dogs ability in a real hunting situation.  Both purebreds and breeds in progress will be able to compete in these activities!

As you'll notice, there is a board for these on the Hunting Club page now, and more information will be coming about it shortly. As of right now here's how it'll work:

- Hunting Certifications will open the first week of every month and you will have from the first to the seventh to enter your dogs. Dogs make take ONE (1) Certification per month.

- Dogs will compete against themselves for a score between 1 and 100. This will be randomly rolled, and then if they are instinct tested they will have that added.

- Depending on the level, dogs will need a 50, 65 or 80 to pass their testing and earn a qualification. 

Currently the following activities will qualify for hunting certifications:

Singles Hunting (divided by group)
Pack Hunting
Earth dog
Barn Hunting  (modified)
Coonhunting
Retrieving

There may be further breakdowns within sports based on Prey items and such with their own titles, and all these will have 3 levels.  I promise if it doesn't make great sense now, it will when it's organized properly.

Dogs will have to earn 3 qualifications in order to earn a title and move up a level in the first two, then 6 for the masters level.

So what are the levels/titles? All sports will have their own title, which is still being determined at this moment, and each title will correspond with a level. They are:

Beginners: earns 3 qualifications (scores over 50)
Juniors: earned after their beginners and is 3 qualifications (scores over 65)
Masters: earned after their juniors and is 6 qualifications (scores over 70).

Scores are not retroactive, so 5 qualifications over 70 at the beginners level will NOT count towards your Masters.

Cost has yet to be determined, but I'm thinking about $20 per dog per test.




Instinct Testing:

We use instinct testing in the Herding and Protection Club, and look forward to introducing it to the Hunting Club with a twist. The instinct tests will be per activity, but will not be used for every show Class going. That would be a lot.

Instead, it'll he used in the hunting Certifications and special stakes shows. These shows will be run on scores instead of random, and instinct tested dogs will get their test results as a bonus.

These tests will have a maximum of 50 though instead of 100 to keep it more fair. Dogs will roll 3 numbers between 50, and those will be averaged Out and rounded to the closest whole number.




Club Rare Breed Auction

This is exciting, and will be an auction open to Club members only! Remember, you only need 1 dog registered to be a number, which means entering 1 show!

These dogs will be created in pairs by the club, so you'll have all health and stats avaliable to you.  You will get them instinct tested (with advantage so they may be a bit higher;)), and they'll be 2 years old and ready to go.

I'm thinking the auction will start at $500 per PAIR. I'll be choosing one set, and I'll open voting for the other.




Other items I'm running out of time to post:

-Banking system for the club
- Other club titles to earn including total dogs and versatile titles.
- Hall of Fame
- Breed specialities and prestigious shows!
- Year end Awards
- Point Submission system




I hope you enjoy the preview! Let me know what you're most excited for and You'll recieve a credit for show entries in the new year!
