Although autumn hunting has not yet started, some packs of hounds are already anticipating mastership and staff changes for the 2015-16 season.
Among those looking for a new mastership are the Taunton Vale Foxhounds. A grass country, boasting a splendid vale that takes a great deal of crossing and carries a good scent, this West Country pack is likely to attract much interest.
The Bicester with Whaddon Chase are also seeking applicants to hunt hounds following Patrick Martin’s retirement at the end of the 2014-15.
