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.

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 don't 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 don't 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!

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! ;)
