The Coakham Bloodhounds are one of the oldest Bloodhound packs in the UK, and they hunt over a wide area in Kent and Sussex. They hunt "the cleanboot" (ie the unadulterated human scent left by a man or woman running ahead of the pack). This has always been the case, even before the Hunting Act 2004.
Booking-In Instructions 2021
Subscribers and Ticket Holders will be guaranteed a space, unless Covid changes things, but they must still book in via email@example.com for each meet.
We will have limited Caps available. See meet description for release date - these will be on a first come, first served basis, and require payment and a completed disclaimer for this season (see Subs page) within 24 hours of booking . Caps are not refundable but in the event of a cancellation we will carry your cap forward to a meet of your choice (space permitting).
We do not accept bookings by any other means except email to firstname.lastname@example.org so an email to any other officer or a comment on a post on Facebook will not be taken as a booking.
Please ensure payment, booking and disclaimer are all done in the same name, to avoid confusing the organisers! If this is not possible for some reason then ensure the organisers are aware of this.
IMPORTANT: NO DOGS ALLOWED AT MEETS AT THE MOMENT, THERE IS A LOT OF KENNEL COUGH AROUND AND WE WOULD HATE FOR THE HOUNDS TO CATCH IT AS WE WOULD ALL MISS OUT ON HUNTING!

This is a jumping day as there are several boundary fences to be jumped. For the sake of clarity, a boundary fence is on the demarcation line between two separately owned properties,
accordingly there are no gates nearby. These boundary fences are 2’ 9” (90 cm). They can only be avoided by a long hack round. There is no non-jumping master for this day. All
hedges, however, are optional and can easily be missed out.
Please bring edible contributions to share and your own cup for tea. We encourage all followers, particularly new ones, to make every effort to attend tea.

The Coakham Bloodhounds are one of the oldest Bloodhound packs in the UK, and they hunt over a wide area in Kent and Sussex. They hunt "the cleanboot" (ie the unadulterated human scent left by a man or woman running ahead of the pack). Hunting with a pack of bloodhounds is one of the least artificial method of hunting organised quarry, and, whereas a fox will run freely, a human quarry can make more effective use of the increasingly urbanised countryside. The hounds hunt by scent alone, unlike many other breeds of hounds that hunt by sight.
