Hound Show Cancellations

All 2020 Hound Shows have been canceled.

A Message from MFHA President Tony Leahy, MFH

The schedule has come together for a fantastic weekend of education and comaraderie among our drag packs April 26-18, 2019 in Aiken! Presenters will include Aiken Hounds' Karl McMillan, Larry Byers, MFH, Randy Wolcott, and huntsman Katherine Gunter; Green Mountain Hounds' Terry Hook, MFH and Elaine Ittleman, ex-MFH; Sewickley Hunt's huntsman John Tabachka and Jeff Bates; Old North Bridge Hounds' Ginny Zukatynski, MFH; and Middleton Place Hounds' huntsman Willie Dunne.

They will cover a range of topics including the field, Masters' duties, two-legged foxes, scent recipes, laying the drag, and hound breeding and training. The weekend will kick off with a welcome reception in Aiken Friday evening, followed by a lowcountry boil Saturday night. On Sunday, Aiken Hounds will give a drag demonstration, and Master Linda Knox McLean, who is also a trustee of the Hitchcock Woods Foundation, will lead a tour in the woods discussing forest management and more.

We have a room block reserved at Hilton Garden Inn in Aiken for discounted rates using the code DRA. Register online here. For more information, contact Maggie Johnston.
