Beagle running in the summer months

Was wondering when most of beagle owners run their dogs in the hot months. First thing in the morning or last hour??

Foxhound: $250
Telemetery: $900
Shocking collar: $400
The sound of great chase: priceless

I like the mornings when the due is on the ground and the sent is fresher the dogs seem to stay on line better, and it is somewhat cooler as well...

Morning is good, but I also would run at night in the middle of the summer.

Mornings or rainy evenings.
Pretty much every summer weekend morning is a dog day for us.

Ok. I had coyote hounds we always ran at dark because it could be a all night chase. I have a 8 m9nth I want to get him out throughout the season. I notice the rabbits at the house start moving about an hour before dark.

During the hot days of summer I get out early, 1st light, only run them 2 hours tops!! Plenty of water.
Not a good feeling when you see your dog drop of heat exhausted! I did it years ago when I was young and stupid, the dog bounced back, but never again
