About Baily’s

Why are you no longer printing the Baily’s Hunting Directory?

We did not move away from the traditional format of red hardback editions lightly, conscious that Baily’s Hunting Directory had been published in that format since 1897. However, we faced the situation that it was no longer financially feasible to publish the Baily’s Hunting Directory in printed format. By placing the Directory on a Web site, we can make much more information available to far more people at a fraction of the cost. We very much hope that you enjoy this Web site and find it useful. If you would be interested in purchasing a shorter printed version of the current Baily’s Hunting Directory in the future, please register your interest by providing your full contact details in an email to info@bailyshuntingdirectory.com.

Is the content of Baily’s Hunting Directory the same as in previous printed editions?

It’s the same full content on all registered hunts but we are now able to update details as soon as we get them without waiting for the next annual edition.
