If you missed the Virginia Hound Show, check this out! Iroquois huntsman Lilla Mason put together the Smilebox below from photos Dave Traxler took at the show. We’d like to add that, with the Hound Welfare Fund‘s annual dinner and auction coming up on June 16, this is a nice reminder of why we do what we do. When our hounds retire, they’re no longer covered by the Iroquois Hunt budget, and that’s where the Hound Welfare Fund and its supporters step in.
It’s not too late to RSVP for this year’s fundraiser, and even if you can’t attend in person you can still leave a bid for an item or make a donation. To see some of the items on offer and get more information on leaving a bid, click here.

good looking hounds but can they hunt ? what do you hunt a drag or foxes & coyotes im a former huntsman from Ireland i get home once a year & get a day out with the hounds i miss it every day gladly we can still hunt foxes with hounds back home fight the ban …hark away
Can they hunt? You BET they can! The unentered ones, of course, are still untested, but their sire and dam both are fine pack members, and the dam, Baffle, already has produced an outstanding litter of hunters for us, the BAs. We hunt coyote most, but also some foxes, though coyotes are very numerous and are our most usual quarry. Delighted to read your comments and hope you’ll continue to stop by the hound blog! And if you have any photos from your hunting and hounds, we’d love to see them, too.
