Hunting with Moore County Hounds

New Invitations: We are a private pack. No one may hunt with Moore County Hounds without a written invitation, which is sent each year by the Masters.

Prior to riding with us, each person must have completed the following:

  1. Acknowledge your intention to hunt by acceptance of the invitation to hunt in writing for the current season.
  1. Complete and send to the Secretary, the current season’s Release of Liability Waiver including parental waiver for all juniors.
  1. Purchase a current North Carolina Hunting License and a North Carolina Game- lands stamp if you plan to hunt in Hoffman. The Lifetime NC Hunting License is a great option and saves you time and money if you plan to hunt long term.
  1. A current negative Coggins for each horse is required.

We are a private pack:  Those who are invited to hunt should feel an obligation to financially support the hounds. 

Roading: No one without an invitation from the previous season may ride with the hounds during Roading. Guests are permitted as long as they are accompanied by a member.

Hunting Seasons: Our Hunting Season begins in informal dress, “Ratcatcher”, in October with Fall Hunting. Opening Meet is held on Thanksgiving Day at Lyell’s Meadow. Meets are on the Fixture card, which is mailed out with invitations and a second Fixture Card is mailed out mid-season. Bye day information is on the Hunt recorder and dress is Ratcatcher attire.
