Covid-19 Update – 11th of September 2020

In light of the recent announcement by the Government, our view that hunting with the Hamilton Bloodhounds is an organised sport/outdoor activity operating within Covid-Secure Guidelines and thus able to continue, has been confirmed by The Hunting Office.

We have however determined that the field must be limited to thirty mounted followers. Huntsman and Whips will remain entirely separate throughout the day, as will the Quarry. Car and foot followers do not fall within the remit, but we ask that everyone respects the rules and guidance and endeavours to observe them at all times.

Please make sure you have read and understood the guidance for hunting in the present pandemic available on our ‘Meets’ Page, and that you have completed and submitted a Disclaimer.

Booking must be made to hamiltonbloodhoundssecretary@gmail.com

Priority for booking will be given to Members and Subscribers.

Only Members and Subscribers may attend without payment. If you are visiting then you must pay as soon as your booking is confirmed (The Hamilton Bloodhounds, TSB A/C No. 00126410 Sort Code: 30-93-22 – Please use your Surname and Meet location for the Reference). This is not refundable.

Welcome Info

The Hamilton Bloodhounds are a very sociable group. We pride ourselves on being very friendly and welcoming. Everybody is invited to join us! For us there is nothing more enjoyable than being out on our horses, and watching the Bloodhounds work – in some of the most beautiful countryside in Suffolk and North Essex.

New ‘quarry’ (runners) are always welcome, as are non-riding members – our ‘foot-followers’ – who come along to watch, support and enjoy the day. We also have a large number of social events every year, and everyone is welcome!


We’re a friendly group of like minded riders of all ages. New members are always welcome to join in, not just the hunting, but all the social activities that we do, from Hunt Balls, Rides, Quizz nights and more!
