- Nancy Mitchell, Huntsman
Bijou Springs Hunt (CO) closed its 35th season with a bang, on three different coyote lines. This pack of mixed foxhounds has become quite a machine, with the strengths of several different breeds keeping pressure on the wily coyote that is the quarry in the Colorado Front Range. It has actually not been the least challenging season this hunt has ever had, but we persevered. The huntsman was thrown from a horse two weeks before cubbing season started, breaking her back and pelvis, and dropping that responsibility onto the first whip.
