It's cutting them loose and having the pack run the rabbit until it gives up and goes in a hole or gets caught. And although the dogs usually don't catch it, they run like they want to. Just me and my pack of hounds, in any condition, on any day, in the roughest places I can find . . .

Video of Beagles Running in January

Here is some footage from some of our running in early January. For Butcher, Ob, and Jed this made their 16th day out of the last 18. They were obviously showing some signs of fatigue. We were running in a Vinton County clearcut. There was a little snow but it warmed up a little and started to melt. Temperatures for the day ranged from 23 - 42 degrees. It was a beautiful day and made you glad just to be out running.

I ran Butcher, Ob, Jed, Silly, Dennis, and Dilly.  The Old Man ran Dixie, Lim, Village Girl, and Village Amigo. It was the day before a big storm so we ran a bunch of dogs for quite a while, just trying to get them all some work.


  1. Hello, I was wondering what dog is driving the rabbit up the hill at 4:50 to 5:00 min in this video. I have watched a few videos of your dogs running and have really liked that dog on video.

    Thank You, Justin Poole,

  2. Justin,

    Thank you for visiting the site and watching the video. At that point in the video, I think the first dog is Lim and the second one is Ob. Lim has a rough squall mouth and Ob is the big bawl mouth. Depending on exactly when you are talking, one of these two is running the front.

  3. It's the one with the bawl and if don't mine me asking what dogs is out of.

    Thank you, Justin

  4. The dog with the bawl mouth is Ob (Logan Elm Obstruction). He is a two year old male out of Logan Elm Neal X Logan Elm Red Lucy. He is a younger brother to Gypsy and Hot Head. He is a littermate to Dissident.

  5. By the way, Justin, I don't mind you asking and appreciate you taking the time to comment! :)
