Huntsman, Tony Gammell
Tony Gammell was most recently huntsman at the Keswick Hunt (VA) for seventeen seasons. Despite his Irish roots and his early experience hunting the Traditionally-Bred English foxhounds at the County Limerick (IR), Gammell built a superb pack of American hounds at Keswick which he adored. He successfully adopted a concept of zero-tolerance—no deer, no coyote—and was successful with that program. Tony looks forward to the challenge of steadying his new pack from a variety of riot in that wooded South Carolina country that crawls with every manner of critter from armadillos to possums. If he did it at Keswick with coyotes, he can surely do it at Lowcountry with armadillos!
