Media Kit

Since Baily’s began in 1897 some 120 years ago, as an annual publication Baily’s Hunting Directory has been widely acknowledged as the only truly comprehensive source of information on registered hunts and hunting worldwide. Over this time we have had regular write ups in the Daily Telegraph, The Field, The New Yorker, Tatler etc.

Baily’s Hunting Directory (BHD) has had many owners in its long history including, Vintons, JA Allen,  IPC (publishers of The Field and Horse and Hound) and more recently Pearson Publishing who were instrumental in taking the publication on-line to be published online as part of an exciting new hunting web site,
