Summer Hunt Season Activities

Summer Fun

Summer Hunt weeks are upon us!

Both Green Creek Hounds and Tryon Hounds have planned a summer activity for 2010.  They are fund raisers or jump starts for our fox hunting seasons.  For riding members and social members alike, it’s a good time to start to thinking about the opening of the hunt season for 2010/2011.  
Green Creek Hounds, have already completed roading its young hounds, and cubbing season has began. So far the cubbing season has produced some great chases with coyote and fox being very abundant this season.  After a couple of weeks of cubbing under our hooves, we are nearing our summer hunt week.  The Green Creek masters have promised a long weekend of fun in mid August. Don’t miss out whether you’re a rider or just want to enjoy as a social participant please consider joining us.
