Fox Hounds

hound intell.hanna

From The Hound Intelligence Series published by Hounds magazine―an oversized 335-page collection of stories about remarkable and memorable hounds from around the hunting world.

Julie Whitlock McKee told me about her favorite foxhound at the Midland Fox Hounds (GA)―a hound that she walked as a puppy.

“He is a beautiful tri-colored dog hound who is as honest as the day is long. When the correct quarry is being chased, he is right there up front. He may not be the beauty king that goes to the shows, but if there is any doubting in the minds of the hunt staff as to the correctness of the pack, they look for Brecon to tell them if the pack is right. Which is quite handy in a pack that has a lot of young entry.

Can you explain what a “strike hound” means?
Also “intimidated from drawing “?
Thank you

A strike hound is a term to describe a hound who is often is the first to "find" the fox's scent while drawing a covert.
Re intimidation, I suspect Brecon was a more sensitive hound than the staff members supposed, and that they were perhaps a bit too aggressive in correcting him when he spoke on the line of a deer as a puppy. As a result, he is shy of being the first to speak.
