Handlers. Maximum 2 dogs per handler including unentered dogs, no exceptions.

Separate entries are required for each family unit and for each hunt, on the official NOFCA entry form, completed, signed and accompanied by the required entry fees. If entering more than 2 dogs, you must provide a separate check for each additional dog over 2. In addition, please number them in order of preference for entry. Except as required under NOFCA Rule 6d, refunds and substitutions are at the Hunt Secretary’s discretion, but will generally be allowed prior to Closing Day (refunds) or prior to draw (substitutions).
