The 2014 hunt test season has come to a close. Year end results: 2 new master hunters. One of which I qualified for the 2014 master national. One new senior hunter and one ending the season with three senior passes toward the four needed for the title. Dogs that I ran but were owned and trained by Sharon Long: two new master hunters (ruby and tequila). Two seniors ( ruby and bix). And a junior (bix). Bix also obtained one master pass this year at only 17 months of age. It was an awesome season. Back to the yard for more training. Lots of young dogs to work on for next year.
