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.
Foxhunters: Lee, KC9OBV, was the fox for July 15. There were two hunters in attendance. Work schedule and out of town took two of our regular hunters out on Saturday. The hunters in attendance were Mike, KF9NP, and Larry, WA9FFZ. The hunters could not hear the fox box at the starting point so Lee gave the bearings of 120 degrees to 130 degrees. That made Lawrenceport as the likely location. Lee went to voice operation on his car's two meter rig. That provided a good signal for taking bearings. Mike found the fox at the boat ramp in Lawrenceport. He arrived in fifty-five minutes and drove 14.1 miles. Larry did not find the fox and was actually outside of Lawrence County when the time ran out and the miles piled up. With very few sign posts he was helped by some kind people on a four wheeler on how to get to Highway 60 to head back toward Mitchell. Mike will be the fox on August 20 and the hunt will start at 4 PM. Mike now has three wins, Ray with two and Lee with two.
