This past January my Tennessee Valley Hunt went on the road for a Joint Meet with Belle Meade. We traveled with our professional huntsman Ryan Johnsey, ten couple of our Penn-Marydel hounds, four Joint Masters about a dozen members. We went south to Georgia to hunt with Belle Meade and then off to the east over the Smoky Mountains to hunt with Red Mountain in the North Carolina. Any time one travels to foxhunt then adventures will abound. Due to these Joint Meets, I now have two new items to knock off my bucket list: 1) survived hunting in the pitch dark of night; and 2) was tutored on to how to fish for coyotes.
