I'm not running down the beagle... In fact they are a great little animal with a better nose than a harrier an can hunt any day of the year wth minimum scent...the question was asked about foxes going to ground...I seen 1st hand a top class pack of beagles with 15 couple hunting day in day out hunting the same fox for anywhere between 2 an 3 hours with no conclusion as there was no pressure on... Obviously would mark some after short hunts but numbers would be small in a season...I hav seen pack of harriers in same country who find it hard to get anything over an hour as foxes can't stick the pressure... 100 odd foxes marked every season..often 4 or 5 in a day...they meet the useless ones 2 that are gone in after 5 mins...that is just my experience of both games... Not knocking ss either but he did admit to bolting to lurchers which is completely different game...

You obviously haven't seen a 'class of pack' if they can't put foxes to ground.

I know a pack of beagles that hunt fox and they are brilliant to find, flawless to keep a line and better to mark than anything. They regularly knock foxes above ground.
