Contact information may be out of date so has been hidden.
Hunt country: We have 100 acres of land, 90 acres fenced. We have two streams entering our grounds and a seasonal underground stream bubbling up through the limestone ledges, all collecting into one stream exiting our grounds. A lowlands habitat featuring Speckled Alders, Viburnums, and Dogwoods give way to Hawthorn and Apples trees. Hardwoods of Sugar Maples, Yellow Birch, Red Maples, White Ash and Poplars provide cooling shade in the hills above the belly land. Plantation grown White & Norway Spruce speckled with Scotch Pine provide winter cover. Over two miles of maintained paths crisscross the running grounds.
History: Mid-Valley Beagle Club has been in existence for 52 years. We have original members still active in club activities.
Memebership: Mid-Valley has 35 members, most, active Beaglers who field trial and hunt. Our grounds support both Cotton Tail Rabbits and Varying Hare. We have successfully established a Hare breeding pen and supplement this native population with Hare from Canada. Our members have trained hounds on our grounds and produced some of the best International Field Champion hounds in the United States this past decade. Member's dogs at stud and litters of puppies can regularly be found in Better Beagling, betrbeagle@aol.com.
Membership applications are reviewed from January to March on a first come first serve basis. Membership dues are $75 per year with a $125 membership fee. Trials: Mid-Valley Beagle Club runs AKC sanctioned field trials and all our members must be in good standing with the AKC.
