Often referred to as ” the red-backed bible of hunting” our well-known ‘Directory’ section 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. Updated daily, we offer subscribers a unique insight into the past, present, and the potential of a very bright future of hunting with hounds.
Each hunt has has 3 elements in their Directory section:-
A listing page containing hunt details,
A gallery page featuring the best images from that hunt,
A related services page featuring hirelings, liveries, etc. available in that hunt area.
In addition to images on the hunt gallery pages captured by some of today’s best photographers of hounds and hunting scenes, we offer subscribers a chance to view our 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’ – 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 finding ‘just the right name’ for each puppy in a litter. It is updated regularly and currently contains over 6100 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 exclusive pictorial tableware?
