Fox Hunt Report – August 20, 2022
Fox Hunt Report – August 20, 2022


On Sunday, May 15, 2022 we had our 4th fox hunt of the year. We had a good turnout of 8 different teams with a total of 17 people hunting the fox. The fox was hidden at George Washington Elementary School behind the Allandale Mansion. This location proved to be a difficult location for a lot of teams. We believe this was caused by the fox being higher in elevation than most people hunting and the signals bouncing off of Bays Mountain. Even though it was a challenge, everyone had a good time hunting the fox.

After Action Report

This was a very difficult fox hunt due to the hiding location. The foxes were hidden in a valley below the highway and caused signals to bounce off of both sides of the hills and have a lot of reflections. This tripped up many of the hunting teams but they eventually found it with some hints. Overall it was a good fox hunt.
