When does the fox hunting season


Lamping is a loose term that covers a number of different activities. However, they all take place at night and they all result in the murder of wildlife in the British countryside.

The main fox hunting season usually takes place between the end of October to early April whilst the ‘cubbing season (often referred to by hunters as Autumn Hunting) takes place between August and the end of October.

This leaves a period of around 3-4 months where hunts are not actively out and about however there are a number of practices and activities related to hunting which go on all year round. These include fundraising events (Hunt balls and Point to Point for example) as well as darker activities such as breeding foxes to be hunted, creating artificial earths, and feeding fox cubs to hounds to train them to kill.
