thank you Sir ,They really use to be pretty good dogs ,my old dog has gotten down in the hips and I lost most of my running spots so I dont get to run as much anymore and that really effects a pack in my opinion ...there tuning back up at the moment ,thanks for watching !

Thanks NCHillbilly ,I have thought about giving it up due to no place to really run much anymore ....just cant do it yet ,I have owned and hunted some kind of hound for 40 yrs ...never thought I'd see the day I even thought about it but this place is fast changing down here

That's it here, too. I used to keep coon hounds, bear hounds, and beagles and hunted them all the time. Now, I just don't have the time to do them justice, and private land access is pretty much a thing of the past. Used to be, you could drop the tailgate anywhere. Now, nobody wants a dog on their land.

same here ,they just opened up the wma in the video for small game hunts with dogs (our old deer dog club )state bought it ...GW caught us first time out and said you do know the dogs have to be leashed at all times right ? I showed them the ''new'' rules on this wma and small game hunt part of rule change ....What was sad was that GW really thought a pack of beagles running rabbits was supposed to be on a leash ....things and PEOPLE have changed ...Old ways are long gone ...its sad alot kids will not ever get to see the old way ,I am hoping my 2yr old grandson atleast gets to do it some with me ,he loves the dogs and hollers the whole time the dogs are running a race and just happy as he can be ...cant wait for him to get just a little older

There are a couple old guys come and run beagles on my place here a few times a year. I love to go out there and listen to them run.

Your pack realy sounds good man. Appriciate the video ! It's sad it's so hard to find a place to hunt rabbits and squirrel anymore. If we keep the kids involved it might turn back around one day. Thanks for the video.

what blows my mind is that the game warden didn't know the rule change on the wma.
