    Well not all hunts are 'live' hunts. Im not sure about mie's, but the hunt I go with does actually hunt foxes & coyotes. We don't get them too often though ! The other two hunts that I have been to have been drag hunts, where some drags a scent around and that's what the hounds follow.

    Yes, it depends on the hunts and that State's, Province's rules on Live Hunts or not.

    Here, the hounds are bred with a tad bit shorter of a leg so that even if they do catch a scent, they cannot catch whatever it is that they are chasing because they cannot keep up.

    If they do catch something, it is usually sick, dying or uncapeable of running. 99.99% of the time, the hounds catch nothing.

    With the Hunt in my area, it isn't about a catch at all. They don't want that. Too dirty, to inhumane, unncessary and unwanted. It is all about the Hunt itself, the hounds catching the scent and the chase. Most importantly, it is about keeping the tradition alive and educating younger generations on the history of the sport and its roots and keeping that going for many generations to come.

    When I was a working student at the Fox Hunt/Eventing Barn, I used to tend to the Hounds daily. They are very lovey. I miss them terribly :( My favorite hound is named Valentino. His Brother Valentine just recently passed away :(

    There are many places that do drags. Again, it all depends on the area and the location.

    Cool, cheers for clearing that up. I've only seen the old movies where they actually hunt the foxes. Wasn't sure what's done these days :)

    Hunting is the way to go I was a green coat in our hunt ie you are placed qaround the field and mind everyone lead over jumps or if necessary get up and ride other horses over jumps its great for the novice horse as they don't want to leave the gang so they jump everything and end up with very few fears I reccommend going straight into the frey might as well get in there on the first hunt if the season its alway a light easy one and gets the horses used to everything.
