Members wanting to take their Hunting Test are required to attend the following:
The Hunting Test at the Hunt Kennels should be marked as follows:
The passing of the Hunting Test allows the Member to go hunting unaccompanied and this should be in the Examiners mind during the test. The Members should be tested orally, the Member either passes or fails wholly at the discretion of the Examiners.
It should be taken into account that the Member may be nervous, and the Examiners may try to lead the Member towards an answer if they feel they are suffering from nerves rather than ignorance.
If the Member is a borderline case, it is recommended that they be accompanied for a further days hunting by one of the Examiners and encouraged to explain what is going on during the day and be asked informal questions.
Examiners may then ask the Member as many of the following questions as they feel appropriate.
