Thank you all for all your comments. We discovered part of the problem last night - I hadn't been stacking for Agi for some reason. My agility was over 2k lower than the other Hunter in our group.The Guild started helping me gather gems, and my Raid Leader came with me and worked me through Reforging some of my gear. I'm now pulling only about 200dps less than the other Hunter, as long as I don't get overwhelmed. My global cool down was so long that the difference between her calling the shots and me calling the shots was a good two seconds - and if every 2 seconds, you're losing several hundred DPS, that tends to reflect in your overall. :PAs for switching the specs - I don't think I'm going ot do that, if just because I apparently can't quest not in BM spec. I do too much damage and my pet can't reliably hold aggro if I'm not in BM spec. I will try out a survival build over MM and see if that helps at all, though. :)Again, thank you all for all your comments! I'm linking this to my guildies so they can see what was suggested as well.

Tygerwolfe-Remember to use Misdirect when you are questing! Absolutely the only type of pet that might even have a chance of holding threat off me is a BM one, but if I do one or two back-to-back MDs when I pull a quest mob, my pet will have threat lead well over me.This is the Misdirect Macro I use:#show Misdirection/cancelaura Misdirection/cast [@focus,help][help][@pet,exists] Misdirection/dismount(I include /cancelaura MD and a /dismount for questing and refreshing pre boss pull. I'll use it on my /focus in dungeons [the tank] but if they are taking a long time to pull something and it only has less than 8 seconds left, I'll hit the keybind again to cancelaura and allow me to recast it for a new 20 second duration. Dismount for questing so that I can hit that key and MD to my pet all in one keystroke.)For Pet Growl, using Hunter's Mark as its toggle:#showtooltip/cast Hunter's Mark/petautocastoff [group] Growl/petautocaston [nogroup] GrowlThis second macro is particularly useful for those looonng long levels between 1 and 76 where you don't have Misdirect. :-/
