TOMORROW is Blessing Day, so today presents a good moment to look back on an excellent cubbing weekend. The last weekend in October was damp, misty, and chilly with highs in the 40s–a perfect weekend, really, for a spooky Halloween. Despite a stiff breeze, the hounds had no trouble finding coyote lines, and, in fact, the pack hardly ever stopped working during two days of hunting. The video above is from both days combined and gives you some indication of hounds’ general work ethic. You’ll spot quite a few familiar faces, too: red and white Samson, whose trip from England to Kentucky made him very conservational; bounding, powerful Banker; Sage, the mother of our current SA puppies, and their father Driver, too; as well as Paper, better known in his youth as “Playper”!
Tomorrow the formal season begins. Looks to me as if the hounds have absorbed their lessons well during the informal training season!
Great video. Thanks for posting.
Thanks so much! It was a great weekend with the hounds, which makes for good video!
great to see them back in action enjoy every blog do they catch many coyotes ?
Glad you have been keeping an eye on the blog, and we’re sorry it’s taken so long! I can tell you they’re a good, fast pack with plenty of drive and nose.
Hope you have a good day!
Thanks, David! If hounds are around, it’s bound to be a good day!
