Eyes and Ears

NormanCurrent news from around the hunting world is something Foxhunting Life readers appreciate, and we want to ramp up this part of our content by having more eyes and ears in place. Would you like to be a Regional Correspondent for FHL? Don’t say yes unless you know you’ll have a lot of fun doing it!

If you have your finger on the pulse of events among the hunts in your territory, we’d like to hear from you. We’re not asking you to write the news reports (although we’d be pleased if you would like to do that). Just give us the facts by phone or e-mail, and we’ll write the story.

Regional correspondents will earn a free subscription to Foxhunting Life for their efforts, along with the occasional gift of a book, CD, or DVD from our Bookstore. They will be listed on the site as the go-to person for news in their region and will have their byline on the story, if published.

Examples of recent newsworthy stories posted on FHL include the good news of Old Dominion whipper-in Scott Dove’s Scottish Deerhound winning Best in Show at Westminster and the sad news of the fire that destroyed William Frazer’s custom tailor shop in County Limerick, Ireland. Both stories were avidly read and commented on by our readers.

Another example of newsworthy items—especially this time of year—are the changes in professional hunt staff around the country. We know of a few staff changes for the coming season and will be posting those stories in the days to come.

If you have a nose for news and would like to be a correspondent for Foxhunting Life, send me an e-mail at [email protected]. Let’s talk!
