The Masters of the Foxhounds

The Masters of the Foxhounds are the esteemed guardians of tradition and excellence at Moore County Hounds. Serving as the guiding force behind our hunts, the Masters are responsible for the overall management of the hounds, the care of the hunting territory, and the conduct of the hunts. Their role is multifaceted, encompassing the planning of hunting routes, liaising with landowners, ensuring the welfare of the hounds, and upholding the highest standards of sportsmanship and etiquette.

With a keen understanding of the land and a profound connection to the hounds, the Masters orchestrate each hunt with precision and grace. Their leadership ensures that every outing with Moore County Hounds is a thrilling and respectful pursuit, honoring both the heritage of foxhunting and the beauty of the Sandhills terrain.

Whether you are a seasoned hunter or a guest joining us for the first time, the Masters' expertise and hospitality will guide you through an unforgettable experience. Their dedication to the sport, the club, and the community is the cornerstone of what makes Moore County Hounds a symbol of foxhunting at its finest.
