Great experience up north

Got in last night from a long weekend chasing hare in upstate NY.
We had good game numbers and super running.
At times we had 11 dogs on the ground at once.
The running was pretty much non stop, split chases and long runners, some going out a mile plus.
We ended with a dozen hare for the weekend.

But the coolest thing was when Brian let out a whoop near the end of Saturday and called out "I got a black hare"
.
I have seen pics of this color phase before but had never actually seen one in person despite a lifetime of running hounds on hare.

Check out the pics. Really cool. Off to the taxi for this one.

Looks like a great time. That's the first black one I've ever seen.

Looks like a great time for men and dogs and a good hunt and a heck of a surprise with the melanistic hare.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

I never hunted hare with that many dogs down. I would have loved to hear the chase.
I also never seen a black hare. I may have just watched it go by not knowing if it was wild game or not.

Does anyone know if they are black all year or do they change.
Very interesting hunt. Thanks for sharing with us. Waugh!
