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.

Foxhunt Results for February 15, 2020


Ray, KB9LGS, was the fox and hid at the Williams Dam. Two hunters showed for the hunt. They were Mike, KF9NP, and Larry, WA9FFZ. The early signal strength was weak but permitted a sharp and narrow signal for bearing purposes. Larry headed north for Highway 450 and Mike headed south. Larry's bearing was 265 degrees directly through Williams. Mike's bearing led him south. Larry took the better route but a false reading in Williams led him north instead of south to the fox which was only a quarter mile away. Larry arrived first at the fox den after having driven 23.1 miles. Mike came ten minutes later but only drove 16.0 miles. He was heard saying he was on Grandma Moses Road. Mike, it was Grandma Brown Road. No matter arriving first or having a dead accurate bearing, it is miles driven that decides the winner. Mike will be the fox and will start the March 21st hunt at 4:00 p.m.
