I'm hoping to go hunting this season if my friend is able to lend me a horse and put up with me for a bit. While it is illegal to kill with dogs here her hunt uses a bird of prey for the final kil which is legal. Looks like a really good day and ride.

Eagles may soar but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

I've never heard of that. They just to drag hunts here. They get people who are into cross-country running to be the fox

YAY for Fox Hunting MIE! :) What a fun sport! I had a BLAST on my first hunt EVER last weekend and we actually followed the trail for about 2 hours before we had our "viewing" of a lovely red fox!! And no, don't freak out everyone, he was not killed, we don't do that in our area either ;) Although I believe the hunt club I went with HAS killed a coyote before, so it's entirely possible. Just didn't happen when I was on the hunt with them...which is fine by me, because I love foxes and I don't think I'd actually want to see one killed!!

AAAAAAND PS people, we don't "freak out" the fox for 2 hours takes 2 hours of following his old trail before the hounds even FIND him, and then he runs off and the day is done lol ;)

Wow, I want to go fox hunting so badly.

VelvetsAB - you are located in Alberta? I'm near Calgary and I've done some internet searches but can't find a hunt club near my area. Where do you go? You can PM me if you don't want to leave the details publically.

I love nothing more then a good days hunting you really feel it on the monday though dont you?
Why does your horse not wear his protective boots hunting i ask becuase i know oyu boot him for other occasions is it case you dont loose them?

Debating wheter or not to hunt my mare again this year had a horrific finish last year in Jan with a punctured artery in her hind leg dunno can my heart take it again this year!

To give a horse your heart guarantees a love that will last forever undamageable

Maggistar- I'm glad you brought that up... I noticed when I was hunting very few of the horses were protected. I'd prefer to protect my horse when I go, if it's allowed.

I was the only one with boots on my horse at the hunt so I'm curious as well...although the first stream we went through I wished I hadn't put them on! ;)
