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 have been hunting "the cleanboot" (ie the unadulterated human scent left by a man or woman running ahead of the pack) since they were founded in the 1970s.

 

WHAT WE DO: A view 'from up front' is shown in the video below taken at Underriver, Sevenoaks, Kent.  You can see the cross-country runners (dressed mainly in blue) being 'caught' by the hounds at the end of each hunt. Many more videos and photos are available on the Coakham Bloodhounds Facebook Group.

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.
