We have a guest writer this month our new/old huntsman Michael Geoffrey Lane…

Back in 2012 I never imagined I’d be back at the Atherstone Hunt but life doesn’t always work out as you’d hoped it would…. Hello Michael Geoffrey Lane here new huntsman and master of the Atherstone Hunt. I’ve been brought in to clean up after that bloody fool Barton (quite literally you should’ve seen the state he left the kennels in) also this was the only hunt that would have me …

No hound picture this month instead a picture of myself in the middle of a field of crops. What might I be doing in there I hear you ask and what small mammal might I be looking for? Answers on a postcard. I’m going to let you in on a little trade secret now.. Crop fields provide animals such as foxes with warmth and shelter, you’re guaranteed to find foxes living in them. So, make out we’ve somehow laid a trail through it, put the hounds in and they inevitably “accidentally on purpose” find the fox and bob’s your uncle (although bob’s been banned due to his racism) make sure the crop field is surrounded by riders so nothing can escape and a bloodbath ensures and lots of dead fox cubs.

We have a whole two months of this to look forward to and we’ll be out several times a week. Just imagine how many foxes we’ll have killed by then.
