Welcome to Baily’s Hunting Directory

Welcome to Baily’s Hunting Directory. Since its earliest days Baily’s has been acknowledged as the best and only comprehensive listing of packs of hounds of all types from around the world. Our listing started in  1897 and is now updated daily. Baily’s provides subscribers with unique access to the past, present and future of hunting with hounds.
In addition to our well known ‘Directory’ section we now carry an extensive gallery of images from hound shows and events, a hound show results section going back to 1893 which we update daily. We also offer a repository of hundreds of interesting and helpful articles from some great authors covering the world of hunting with hounds and the country lifestyle.  If that was not enough we now offer a section on collecting and identifyng hunt buttons led by one of the World’s foremost authorities on hunt buttons.

For years Baily’s has been referred to as ” the red-backed bible of hunting” and we are confident that this latest iteration heralds many more decades of Baily’s being the  ‘go to ‘ guide for anyone interested in finding out more about all types of hunting and hounds.
