National Hunt Test and Hunting Instinct Certification
May 1 – May 3, 2022

The 2022 National Hunt will be held May 1, 2 and 3 at the Eastern Missouri Beagle Club, 257 Tagg Road, Troy, Missouri.  The club is about 11 miles northwest of Troy, Missouri, or 1 hour northwest of the National Specialty hotel. 

The club has two fully fenced fields:  one is 40 acres, and one is 25 acres. The fields are very well maintained with cover varying brambles to woods to tall grass and planted rabbit food cover. Both have small ponds for those hounds that want to take a dip!

There is an air-conditioned clubhouse with restrooms, a shower, and indoor and outdoor seating.  There is plenty of green space for parking and exercise pens.  There is camping on site with electric service.

The fields will open Sunday May 1 at 10 am for practice.  Sunday will be practice day, with hunting tests on Monday and Tuesday, May 2 and 3.  There will be a catered barbeque dinner Sunday evening.  The Beagle Club will offer breakfasts and lunches on Monday and Tuesday.  There will be a raffle and auction with the drawing and auction planned for Monday after runs are completed.  Please start thinking about your raffle items!

Hounds and handlers with no experience are always welcome.  A class for new hounds and handlers called Puppy Learning Experience/ Novice Learning Experience will be offered on Sunday and will provide the opportunity to learn from experienced handlers and for new dogs and puppies to go out with experienced dogs.

The premium will be published this spring.  Entries will be limited by the availability of judges and daylight, so get your entries in as soon as entries open to reserve your spot. Contact Bruce Toenjes with any questions at btoenjes@gmail.com.
