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.
Ray, KB9LGS, was the fox and hid at Johnnie's Junction. Four hunters showed for the hunt. They were Mike, KF9NP, Tim, KB9SNL, Brandon, KD9OLS with girlfriend, Olivia, and Larry, WA9FFZ. The signal was difficult to hear at the start of the hunt. In fact, Larry never heard it until beyond the bridge on north 37. Thanks to Tim for telling him the bearing was 340 degrees at the starting point. The order of finish in time was Tim and Brandon, both having driven 12.1 miles, Larry drove 11.8 miles and Mike came in with 11.1 miles and claimed the win. Tally for the year with wins is Ray with 3, Mike with 3, Larry with 3 and Tim with 1. One month there was no hunt. Date and start time for the December hunt is to be announced.
