  • Regarding the Roustabout:
    Just in from the Hunt Test Committee:

    • Roustabout will be run the same as in the past with exactly the same rules and regulations with the addition of a "Hunt-off" between the winners of fields A and B to determine the Final Champion. Think of it as a "Super Bowl" type finale!!

      * The Final field will be determined by the Hunt Test Chair or their representative,  by the use of a coin toss.

      * The chosen Field will be cleared of all birds to the best of our ability. The running order will also be determined by coin toss.

      * The winner of the coin toss will choose from three(3) cards sealed in envelopes. Each card will have a predetermined pattern as to how the birds will be planted. The field will then be set according to card pulled. Neither party will be allowed to see the card or watch the set up of the field.

      * The first party will then run the field. Upon completion, the field will then be cleared of all birds.

      * The 2nd party will then also choose between the same three envelopes with cards for their set-up.

      * The winner will be determined by the same rules already in place. When the field is planted , both parties will kept from view of the field.

      * If any member or either party is caught viewing or trying to view the set-up of the field, the set-up of the field, they are automatically disqualified and the other team wins by default.

        In choosing to to add this, we hope to accomplish a even more exciting finale and to also eliminate the possibility of one field having an advantage over the another.
