Welcome to the
Hunting Retriever Club

"Conceived by Hunters, for Hunters"

 

HRC POLICY NOTICE

After careful review, the HRC Executive Committee has determined that
the use of electronic/robotic/mechanical decoys are illegal in the
HRC testing program. This policy includes: Mojos, pulsators, spinners,
squirters, etc. Equipment of this type is already illegal for use in several
states as well as portions of other states in the country.
Our position is that if they can not be used everywhere,
then we should not be using them anywhere.

The use of these motorized decoys is considered an element
in which to "trick" a retriever. Our rulebook states,
"tricky or unrealistic hunt tests are not only counerproductive but are
against the principles by which the Hunting Retriever Club was formed."

Additionally, the use of jerk strings or jerk rigs
is prohibited due to safety issues.

The Executive Committee has unanimously approved this
new policy which goes into effect immediately.

of 2009 - 2014, before the "Mossy Oak" camo option became available.
We are pleased to announce that this motion was voted and approved!

The honorary replacement Judges Jacket in Mossy Oak has been
offered to those Judges who meet the following eligibility criteria:

1) in good standing with HRC (active membership & not under suspension)
