Grey skies, snow storms, ice and freezing temperatures can make for some unpleasant hunting conditions - and set the scene for great photos. Show us your dead-of-winter hunting or hound walking pics (or cozy retired hounds by the fire, or horses snuggled warm in their barns), and help make these long winter days a little brighter!

From January's E-Covertside: Western Day at Glenmore Hunt Though Western riders aren’t an unusual sight in hunt fields across the country, in central Virginia, they tend to be the minority for many clubs. Some hunts offer an annual Western invitational day to introduce local riders to hunting and give them a chance to experience the sport first-hand. Glenmore Hunt in Staunton, Virginia, is one such club that offers a yearly hunt for Western riders. They’ve offered these invitational hunts every year for more than a decade, and at their 2019 event in late December, more than 30 riders participated in this special cap-free day. The hunt posted invites on social media as well as at local tack shops, and of course, news spread quickly through word of mouth in the community. Some riders were prospective new members, but others were just curious to learn more about hunting. Click below to read the full article!
