Hunt country: The country comprises the whole of Aberdeenshire, some 45 by 30 miles, and is that hunted previously by the Grampian Hunt from 1976-97. The terrain varies from hill to arable and forestry. The nearest neighbouring pack is the Fife, 100 miles south.
History: The Hunt was formed in July 1997 to hunt an area previously hunted by the Grampian Foxhounds in Aberdeenshire and Kincardineshire. Hounds were drafted mainly from the Duke of Bucchleuch's and the Berwickshire packs, both of which continued to give great support. The 'Hunt' button worn on the Huntsman's coat dates from before 1825 and was originally used by the Keith Hall Foxhounds based at Inverurie, Aberdeenshire, and owned by the Earl of Kintore. The Kincardineshire Foxhounds is a privately owned pack and hunts both mounted and on foot, depending upon the terrain and landowners' wishes. The Hunt also carries out 'Fox Control Days' for Gamekeepers, adding to their ability in controlling the fox population over areas they manage.
