Beagle music

Besides the sound of a spring gobbler, Mother Nature has provided us with no finer music than that of a beagle on a hot rabbit track.  

I had a beagle before I had a bicycle. My Grandpa Guy raised great gun dogs and I have owned a few pretty good rabbit dogs myself.

It has been well over a decade since my last beagle, Shortlegs, ran his last bunny. Beagles and the men who train and run them are not as common as they once were. 

That is a shame.

The fun of the chase and the following dinner of fried rabbit and milk gravy combine to make traditional rabbit hunting one of the most gratifying sports there are.
