The Cranwell Bloodhounds

 


The Cranwell Bloodhounds were formed in 1992 by Joint masters the late  

 

Philip Broughton and his wife Wendy, with a view to providing a day in the  


countryside that everyone could enjoy. Bloodhounds hunt the "clean boot"


meaning that they hunt the natural scent of man i.e. a cross country runner.  


To do this, hounds are given an article of clothing to smell or the quarry 


will greet the hounds at the meet, thus giving the hounds ample time to get  


used to their scent.The quarry is given approximately 20 minutes head start 


prior to each of the three or four lines which are hunted each day. No artificial 


scent is used, just the natural smell of the quarry. The speed of the hunt may 


be determined by the terrain and atmospheric conditions i.e weather. 


This private pack of Bloodhounds enjoys around 20 days hunting in a season 


(from September to March). They meet most Sundays at the homes of friends at 


12.30pm. and after the first two lines, (or hunts), rest for a while to enjoy the 


hospitality of the Masters, before continuing to arrive back at the boxes at 


approximately 3.00pm
