Do you know the difference between a foxhound and a harrier? If not, take a look at the reports from two of H&H’s hunting correspondents who have been out and about in Devon recently.
Why not check if you can see yourself or anyone you know who was caught on camera by our photographers with either the Dart Vale & South Pool Harriers or the Stevenstone Hunt?
Dart Vale & South Pool Harriers
Covering the southern most peninsular in Devon, this well-supported pack enjoys an active social calendar. Approximately 30 couple of West Country harriers are kept at their kennels near Totnes. Their hunt country is bordered by the River Avon to the west and the River Dart to the east, with adjacent packs being the Modbury Harriers, the Dartmoor and the South Devon. The Dart Vale Harriers amalgamated with the South Pool Harriers in 1991 however those two packs date back as far as 1840.
