Hunting With Lowcountry
Visitors and subscribers' guests are welcome to hunt with the permission of the Masters. Ideally, guests are accompanied by a sponsoring subscriber in good standing who contacts the Masters for permission in advance of the meet.
Guests are encouraged to arrive at the meet at least 30 minutes before hounds move off. Before you mount, the Secretary will need your signed waiver and capping fee. It is customary to place your waiver and cap fee in an envelope marked with your name and date on the outside. Minors must have a waiver signed by a parent or custodial adult. Capping fees during roading season (September and early October) are waived for it is your first time out with hounds, after that guests are asked to pay a $30 roading fee. Capping during cubbing season (prior to Opening Meet) is $50. During the formal season (after Opening meet) capping is $100 on Saturday Formal Hunts and Holidays. Opening and closing meets will have a capping fee of $100, Hunt weekend meets will be $150/day. If you are interested in Hunt Weekend please look at our rider and non-rider packages.
