Often referred to as ” the red-backed bible of hunting” Baily’s has been acknowledged as the best and only comprehensive listing of packs of hounds of all types from around the world. There is now so much more to Bailys than just our well known ‘Directory’ section which has been the ‘go-to’ resource for hunt details since 1897. Extensive subscriber feedback tells us that this on-line version, with its daily updates, continues to be the primary resource for those with an interest in hunting and hounds. Baily’s provides subscribers with unique access to the past, present, and future of hunting with hounds.
For each hunt, the Directory section has 3 elements:-
A listing page containing hunt details,
A gallery page featuring the best images from that hunt,
A related services page featuring hirelings, liveries, etc. available in that hunt area.
Our extensive gallery of images features images from hound shows and events and an extensive collection of ‘vintage’ images from our archives.
The ‘Shows and Events section’ features hound show results section going back to 1893.
In the News and Articles section subscribers have access to a repository of hundreds of interesting and helpful articles from some great authors covering the world of hunting with hounds and the country lifestyle, latest news from hunts worldwide and a rapidly growing repository of hunting verse.
We have now introduced two ‘free to access’ sections;- one of which is our ‘hound name selector’ we have designed this to be your first port of call when finding ‘just the right name for each pup in a litter. It is updated regularly and currently contains over 5100 names. In addition, we are delighted to be able to share a regular section on collecting and identifying hunt buttons led by one of the World’s foremost authorities on hunt buttons including a very active forum for new or experienced collectors.
Finally, within our constantly evolving online store, we have a full range of essential items for hunting people:- perhaps a printed Directory to start or complete a collection? Perhaps the Hunting Companion that invaluable reference work. In addition, you can purchase our latest publications.
