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 . . .

Building a Pack

I have been doing some reading lately on The Hunted Hare Forum. On a recent post on building a pack were these two ideas shared by two extremely knowledgeable houndsmen, Marty and Tom.

Although Logan Elm Beagles is totally built around having a family of dogs with similar characteristics (the first post) I can totally understand the second opinion of how having dogs from different bloodlines can really help a pack. I wonder if instead of having two lines of dogs, that is where outcrosses might work.
