Welcome to Baily’s Hunting Directory

Baily’s has often been referred to as the red-backed bible of hunting“. Part of the reason for that is because our well-known ‘Directory’, a key element of our online presence, has been the ‘go-to’ hunting resource since 1897.
Baily’s continues to be the best and only comprehensive listing of packs of hounds of all types from around the world. We update Baily’s daily, so subscribers can expect new exciting content  at every visit. This constantly updated version of Baily’s provides subscribers with access to a unique insight into the past, present, and the potential of a very bright future of hunting with hounds regardless of their geographic location. 

Each hunt has has four related elements available to subscribers:-

A listing page containing hunt details, the Directory
A catalogue of the news, articles, results and most relevant references that can be found in Baily’s
A gallery page featuring the best images from that hunt,
A related services page featuring hirelings, liveries, etc. available in that hunt area.

Our gallery pages are full of images captured by some of today’s best photographers of hounds and hunting scenes from around the world. The gallery pages also offer subscribers the opportunity to browse through our extensive catalogue of vintage galleries which feature remastered images from our archives dating from about 1890 onwards.

Our ‘Shows and Events section’ features hound show results from 1835 to the present, with individual Hunt Puppy Show results going back to 1893.

In the ‘News and Articles’ section subscribers have access to a repository of hundreds of interesting and helpful articles from some great authors, the latest news from hunts worldwide, and hunting verse. We also have a ‘Did You Know’ section – a growing timeline of peculiar, sometimes curious incidents concerning hunting or hound. 

In addition to our editorials, we have two other ‘free to access’ sections;- one of which is our ‘hound name selector‘. To date, this has proved to be a valuable asset for hunts Worldwide when scenting out ‘just the right name’ for each puppy in a litter. It is updated regularly, and currently contains in excess of 7100 names. In addition, we are delighted to be able to provide information on collecting and identifying hunt buttons in a section led by one of the World’s foremost authorities on hunt buttons including a very active forum for both new and experienced collectors. Finally, our online store contains a range of items such as one of our Directories, our invaluable Hunting Companion or perhaps our latest offering of our exclusive pictorial tableware?
