Hi,

New to the forum and looking to start my beagle pup on running rabbits. She's about 5 months old. Anyone know of any clubs in the area? I live on border of Montgomery/Bucks county.
Thanks.

Don't know of what clubs may be in your area. I start my pups with a tame rabbit. Look for areas where wild rabbits come out at night, and try to put him on the wild ones once he starts chasing the tame rabbits by scent. Many areas where you can't hunt will have a few rabbits that come out at dark, if you have decent cover and the hawks and owls aren't too thick.

You can also find a starting pen. It is not very expensive and is very convenient. Once they are running at the pen, start them on wild rabbits right away.

any idea of where to find a starting pen? or do you mean construct one myself? I thought about that but live in an area where my neighbors probably would not appreciate the pen in my backyard.
