|Membership of the AMHB|
The Association of Masters of Harriers and Beagles (AMHB) was founded in 1891 and registered 107 packs of Harriers and 40 packs of Beagles. Today there are 22 packs of Harriers and 67 packs of Beagles.
In 2009 the Association has over 600 members, many of whom are Masters of Hounds but membership has broadened in recent years and we welcome all those who support hare hunting and wish to be involved in the Association. We welcome young people under the age of 21 wishing to encourage greater involvement by the young in hunting and in order for them to share the knowledge, experience and skills of more experienced members, in the art of venery and the management and handling of a pack of hounds.
