Laura takes her Three Creek Basset pack out for a walk.
Basseting is the sport of following a pack of Basset Hounds in pursuit of hares or rabbits. The structure is nearly identical to a traditional foxhunt, although the pursuit is on foot. It is a centuries-old tradition that continues to draw young and old who love the outdoors, good sport, and hunting with hounds.
The staff consists of the Master, or Joint Masters, Secretary, Whippers-in, and the Huntsman. Followers are called the Field. The Huntsman is responsible for the actual hunting of the hounds, while the Whippers-in assist to manage the pack. The Field Master leads the Field so members and guests will have the optimal views of the hounds at work.
