    And just to clarify, not all Hunts do live kills. Our Hunt Club's hounds have to be LEGALLY bred with shorter legs. That is actually the law now, not sure of other states but it is here.

    No Kills ever happen, unless the hounds come about a sick fox or other critter that is too weak, sick to run. The majority of animals are too quick for the hounds short legs to even get caught by them. Almost every single time when the hounds catch a scent and do get on the trail of a critter, the hounds cannot even keep up with them.

    It's the law. The Hunt has the Government come and keep track of their breeding program to ensure that the pups and dogs are of regulation conformation. If the hounds are not, they are sold as pets.

    I envy all of you who get to hunt. I've wanted to do this for years, but never had the opportunity. It seems to be a pretty exclusive group.

    I belonged to two hunts in Colorado. One was a real kill hunt. They would really work hard to have a kill. I was a member of this one for one season only. The other worked hard not to have a kill. I was granted my colors with this hunt. I loved it. We, mostly, hunted coyotes, which I liked a LOT more than fox.

    Breeding short legged hounds? Are you kidding? Are you using English, American or what? What law? For the breed, the hunt, or the state?

    I have no idea. I asked the Hunts Master the question about kills, and the answer I got was that the hounds have to be bred with shorter legs, and gave the explanation as to what I gave.

    I took care of the Hounds for 2 years *I was a Working Student there* and got to know the hounds quite well and was given the honor to ride with the Hunt often even though I was never an official member.

    Here are some pics for you, maybe you can tell me:

    Okay anyone that was watching this thread well the first hunt is on sunday god help me lol First hunt of the year hope it goes well. As some of you might have read in another one of my threads entitled gag bit that I am going to be using a three ring elevator bit on Phoebe with double reins just for the hunt. We have been using the double reins a couple of times a week now just so that the two of us get the hang of it together and she has worked really well with it so far and I am hoping that she will be as well behaved on Sunday. My dad bought me a hunting jacket for it and everything I am so happy right now so what everyone think?

    Hey everyone well today we went out on the hunt Before we went out dad said that if I enjoyed it then he would join me up as a junior member and then I could go on all the hunts because you are only allowed on two as a guest. Well it was the best day of my life I loved it and so did Phoebe she was great I think she was made for it lol So going on all the hunts now lol hopefully will all be as fun as today

    Glad you had an awesome time I will be hunting once Mist is in xD

    I wouldn't use studs because usually the ground is so soggy they don't make much difference and when you go on the road for short bits you are a bit buggered
