Longreen Hunt photo2013/01/01
Longreen Hunt riders and hounds rest at the end of the December 22, 2012 hunt at Eastover Plantation, Clarksdale, MS. The hounds had hunted for over three hours, covering 15 miles, finding and pursuing three different coyotes. The riders viewed four others during the hunt, as well as numerous deer. The tuckered-out hound in the front is Justin, a three year old obtained by Longreen from Kimberton Hunt last spring. He would not hunt with the Kimberton pack in the rocky country in northern portion of Chester County Pennsylvania, so he has graduated to being a “Delta dog.”
The Kimberton Hunt Club was founded in 1870, making it one of the oldest hunts in the U.S. Longreen and many hunts in the Mid-Atlantic states use Penn-Marydel foxhounds, who are noted for their voices and ability to work in poor scenting conditions.
