Question:
On a visit to Aiken, South Carolina in February, I had a day with the Whiskey Road Foxhounds. The pack consisted of mostly un-entered puppies. I’m sure the huntsman had his good reasons, but I found it unusual. Why would he do that?

Where we, Stonewall Hounds, hunt in central Virginia, there are many deer hounds and hunters. I try to be careful not to get in their way but sometimes it happens. One time I had a first year hound get up a buck and run it in front of a deer stand. The hunter shot and killed the deer right in front of that hound. Well, guess what, I had to pass that hound on to a deer hunter. Even though I spent time and energy trying to break him. Therefore, during deer season we hunt on Sunday afternoons now from mid Nov. to the first week in Jan. Leasing of land for deer hunting is a big deal around here. I sure hope mounted foxhunting doesn't come to that.
