Latest Foxhunt Results
The HHHC has a monthly fox hunt the third Saturday of each month. The hunt has a 2 hour time limit and the fox must be located somewhere in Lawrence County on public accessable property. Winners are decided on fewest miles driven. In case there is a tie on mileage then whoever arrives first will be declared the winner. If the hunters have the same mileage and arrive at the same time, the hunter who walks to the fox box and finds it first is declared the winner. (If a tie also happens there, the winner will be decided by a fist fight. ;) Start times vary, but are typically 5 pm in the summer and 3 pm during the winter. Our start times vary during spring and fall due sunset times. We don't hunt after dark for safety reasons.
We start our hunts from the Calvary Lutheran Church parking lot which is located on the south side of Bedford at 3705 Austin Drive. Which is located across the highway from the "Bedford - Limestone Capital Of The World" sign and limestone crane.
One foxhunter showed for the hunt, Mike Wright KF9NP and his wife, Debbie. Larry, WA9FFZ, was the fox and hid at the Avoca State Fish Hatchery. It took Mike 53 minutes to find the fox. He drove 9.5 miles. Mike will be the fox on July 16th starting time of 4:00 p.m. Tally for the year now stands at Mike two wins, Larry two wins and Ray one win. There was no hunt in May due to lack of hunters. To avoid three postponements in a row, the rule for having at least two hunters was dispensed with but will be reinstated in July.
