Last week we took you fox hunting with Ireland’s County Galway Blazers. This week, the same globe-trotting hunt enthusiast takes us to quite a different locale: Sydney, Australia.
The Sydney Hunt Club was founded in the 1830s, hunting deer over “wild and difficult country.” The Club was disbanded in the early 20th century on account of war but regrouped in 1956 and now thrives as a vibrant hunt with 12 couple, or 24 hounds, kenneled and worked by Irish Huntsman Donnchadh Brown.
The following helmet cam footage was taken in late September 2014, the last weekend of hunting for the season. It features about half an hour of fits and starts across a breathtaking and varied 18,000 of hunt country. (Day 2 footage can be viewed here.)
Looks like fun!
