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.
Tim, KB9SNL, was the fox and hid at Indian Creek Church and Cemetery on Keith Road. That was out a gravel road near the Indian Creek bridge between Silverville and Williams. Five hunters showed for the hunt. They were Mike, KF9NP with visitor Terry, K4IY, Ray, KB9LGS, Lee, KC9OBV, Jim, N8LL and Larry, WA9FFZ. The correct bearing would have been 270 degrees from the starting point. Tim said the driving route he took to the fox den involved 13.2 miles. The fox den quite likely had not been used before. Larry arrived in one hour and logged 15.9 miles. Mike came in after one hour and forty minutes and drove 17.6 miles. Ray finished at one hour and fifty-five minutes having driven 29 miles. Jim and Lee pulled out without finding the fox.
Larry was the winner, thus ending a two-and-a-half-year dry spell.
