Mells Opening Meet
The Mells Foxhounds held their 51st Opening Meet on a rainy Saturday, October 24, 2015 at the Circle G Ranch near Campbellville, Tennessee. There were 25 riders in the Field plus a staff of five. Hounds were hunted by Jt. Master Karen Kressenberg; also mounted that day were Jt. Masters Stasia Bachrach and Bill Haggard.
In spite of the “fine Irish day,” i.e. soaking wet weather, there was enough scent for pack to have a good run on a coyote. There were 8 ½ couple of hounds cast and hounds found quickly, with a sharp run commencing about ten minutes afterwards. The coyote took the pack west and then circled back.
The Mells hunt country is quit hilly and more than one rider had an involuntary dismount. There were no serious injuries, nothing that a flask wouldn’t handle. And after the hunt, all returned to Circle G Ranch to fill their stomachs and relate their day’s adventure.
