Mid-February proves to be remarkably dry

This only applies to the weather!
Not only are we blessed with fantastic landowners, farmers and keepers but a steady supply of incredibly generous hosts who make sure that hunting days begin with an amazing feast of "nibbles" and drinks. "Nibbles" is something of a misnomer. While each morsel might be a mouthful the sheer quantity makes it more of a meal. From flasks of hot bullshot, through whiskey macs to fruit juices and squash for the drivers and young, no one leaves a meet thirsty of without the option of Dutch courage.
To all of our generous hosts, thank you.

From January into February (just)

"Count your blessings." A phrase often used by mother and one that certainly applies to the EKHwWS. Despite the fact that this is being typed on the dreariest of days and, to make matters worse, a non-hunting day there is certainly a feeling of being blessed!

We benefit, twice a week through the season, from a fantastic team of Masters, great hunt staff, a terrific pack of hounds who, all together with an amazing list of land-owners, farmers and keepers. Despite snow, rain and hard frosts we have lost but one day and that was in the interest of the health of hounds as a virulent canine virus had been reported in the area. Masters now consult local vets before confirming meets.
