Re: Need a class for oversize dogs?

Running was prob the best it could have been considering conditions. Putting the hounds up for a week in favor of som...

Re: pressure on a rabbit

I’m thinking they are specifically alluding to rabbits on the beagle club grounds ??? Perhaps thinking , to many hounds putting to much pressure on them to often is gonna be detrimental to the population. Especially in the nesting season. ?? Otherwise during a pursuit, putting relentless hound press...

Re: Taxidermist

Contact Buck Shot Taxidermy in Beemerville , NJ. Shop is close to PA border. Mark did a hare for me couple yrs ago. Excellent job. He did skin mine and fit over a body. Did say he would prob only freeze dry future rabbits. I’ll try and post a pic.

Re: Run to catch

Depending upon density of cover etc. When the scenting is strong , very few would live if they didn’t seek refuge. Its just a matter of time before they stiffen up. With warmer temps it can happen quickly. Also have noticed how the ticks have reduced durability of most rabbits hounds catch in the wa...

Re: Derby Trials awarding points toward Field Champion

I believe that is Federation derby "Championship" trials only. Think we're only talking about a hanful of possible trials all yr that would conform. I haven't read the official release , but was passed this info back when being proposed. Of course ,Not fan of a more watered down system. To many tria...

Def sounds like a cheap shot to any hound or line.I would rather consider breeding to the hound of the year or line of the decade ,that has offspring on the ground which run the way I like. But I think I understand what your tr...

Re: toughest to run and why,hare cottontail,swampers?

No difference to pursuit of any rabbit / hare species with respect to degree of difficulty . Every day decides its own fate. Now the ghost rabbit takes a special talent. My old Bill gyp was the best at it. Huge nose to cold trail or run in the toughest of conditions , dry or cold. On any other decen...
