From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation search Coursing is the pursuit of game or other animals by dogs —chiefly Greyhounds and other sighthounds — catching the prey by speed, running by sight and not by scent. Coursing was a common hunting technique, practiced both by the nobility, the landed and wealthy, as well as commoners with sighthounds and Lurchers . In its oldest recorded form in the Western world, as described by Arrian the sport was practiced by all levels of society, as remained the case until Carolingian hunting law (Forest Law) appropriated hunting grounds, or commons, for the king, the nobility and other land owners. Animals coursed include hares rabbits foxes deer of all sorts, antelope gazelle jackals wolves ... Jackrabbits and coyotes are the most common animals coursed in America . Competitive coursing in Ireland, the UK and Spain has two dogs running together. In America, generally speaking three dogs are run together. The Protection of Wild Mammals (Scotland) Act and the Hunting Act 2004 (in England and Wales) made it illegal to course hares under any circumstances or to course rabbits without the landowner's permission. In some countries such as Ireland, Poland, Spain, Russia and in parts of the USA coursing hare is legal.

Coursing is one of the world's oldest field sports. Since the days of the Pharaohs "gazehounds", dogs which hunt exclusively by sight, have been tested in competition. Arrian, a Roman writing in AD116 laid down: "The true sportsman does not take out his dog to destroy the hares, but for the sake of the course and the contest between the dogs and the hares, and is glad if the hare escapes." His words are just as relevant today. The Dogs Past Present The Hares ... Results 16 Clocktower Mews, Newmarket, Suffolk, CB8 8LL

Sailplane Winch Information
Lure coursing equipment is that which is used to create an artificial or mechanical lure (often referred to as "the bunny") which can travel at speeds in excess of 50 mph. The artificial lure is pursued by any animal or bird that possesses a strong prey instinct.
The modern day version of this type of equipment was conceived (in the US around 1971) and developed by various sighthound enthusiasts for the purpose of testing their dogs instinct and physical abilities in a competitive event. This equipment is now used by sighthound people in various competitive lure coursing field trials and racing events. The equipment is also used by other dog owners for various reasons such as physical conditioning and for just the sheer enjoyment of watching a dog have fun. Lure coursing is "funnnnn" for the dogs...they do it because they want to run fast and chase an artificial lure...they cannot be forced to chase a lure.
The equipment is now used by several zoos to exercise and condition Cheetahs and African Wild Dogs. Falconers utilize lure coursing equipment to both train and condition their short wing hawks (those raptors that hunt game on the ground) and to perform educational demonstrations of a hawks hunting techniques and flight abilities without sacrificing live game.

    About the Lure Coursing FAQ
    The first version of this FAQ, a 74 line (page and a half) document, originally prepared by Marcia Cavan with additional info from Carol Mount was posted as part of the AKC FAQ. Since its scope was broadened from AKC only details, it was moved out of the AKC FAQ into an independent FAQ. However, the document quickly ballooned to 2000+ lines, making it difficult to read as a single document. This version returns to its "roots" as a FAQ for those who know little about the Lurecoursing. The Lurecoursing Homepage, with extensive and detailed information on this sport, is available at Bonnie Dalzells site under
    What Is Lure Coursing?
    Lure Coursing is a humane sport which attempts to imitate the coursing of the rabbit or hare by sighthounds but without the hare. The sighthounds chase an artificial lure, usually a white kitchen garbage bag, sometimes tanned rabbit skins, or fake fur strips. To set up the "lure" coursing course a line composed of braided fishing line (usually 100 pound test 'trolling' line) is passed around a series of pulleys staked to the ground within a large field (at least 5 acres).

    About Lure Coursing
    Lure Coursing is a performance event developed in the early 70's by Lyle Gillette and other California sighthound fanciers who hunted jackrabbits in the open field, which risked the harm caused by barbed wire fencing. They invented lure coursing as a safer, more controlled sport for sighthounds that would recreate the physical requirements of open field coursing, allowing them to continue testing the functional abilities of their sighthounds. The hounds chase plastic bags on a course laid out to simulate escaping game. The hounds will run the course twice, a preliminary run and a final run. Scores from both runs are added for a combined total score. Hounds are awarded placements and points based on where they finished and the number of hounds they competed against. The hounds are running not only for fun and to keep their natural abilities alive, but also for titles. Titles Equipment Trials

    Information. Lure Coursing is an exciting athletic sport for your dog. However, as with anything in life, to perform at peak ability, the athlete must be in good condition. Poor conditioning can lead to accidents and we want to avoid that at all costs. Lure coursing is an exciting and strenous sport for your hound. There is risk of injury. You, the owner, has to decide what risks your hound may or may not take. The risk and responsibility for your hound is yours. The owners should educate themselves: after all, you are the trainer of a performance hound. You should know how to train your hound for a specific sport, safely and effectively. It takes time, effort, consistency and willingness on the owners’ part to get the hound into shape. Any hound will love every minute of the training because of the exercise and companionship he is getting from you.

    What that means is that it s my job to oversee and promote the medieval sport of coursing within our Kingdom and the SCA at large.
    Welcome to the Homepage of the Meridian Coursing Guild! I am THL Peryn Rose Whytehorse, the new Kingdom Houndmistress. What that means is that it's my job to oversee and promote the medieval sport of coursing within our Kingdom and the SCA at large. SCA coursing is non-competitive, and unless there is a restriction from the site where the event is held, all breeds are welcome to try coursing. For those unfamiliar with the SCA, it is a volunteer organization. Members who participate in coursing all try to lend a hand with setting up and taking down courses, with fund raising, and with promoting the program in any way possible according to their time, skills, and ability. We do not charge fees for coursing events or practices because the vast majority of SCA folks who course already give generously of their time and money to support the program. New initiatives: I am working on: 1) putting members in contact with a trainer for hound certification as canine good citizens, and 2) finding ways to include hounds more at events, particularly indoors. Iarlles Aeruin is working on putting together a junior and novice fewterer program to get youth involved in coursing.

    Information about the history of coursing plus the hares, hounds and course. 2.htm
    This is Coursing The Hares C oursing is one of the world's oldest field sports. Since the days of the Pharoahs "gazehounds", dogs which hunt exclusively by sight, have been tested in competition. Arrian, a Roman writing in AD 116, laid down: "The true sportsman does not take out his dogs to destroy the hares, but for the sake of the course and the contest between the dogs and the hares, and is glad if the hare escapes." His words are just as relevant today. A 11 coursing under National Coursing Club Rules takes place in open country. The wild brown hares are at liberty on their own territory and the fields are not enclosed in any way which would prevent the hares I escape. Beaters, in the same way as for game shooting, drive the hares' one by one on to the running ground. A lternatively, as in rough shooting, the hares are put up by the company walking across the fields to be coursed over. T he hares are not released from boxes, nor are they caught up afterwards. G ame Conservancy research has shown that on estates where coursing takes place, hare numbers are increasing against the national trend. Habitat is carefully preserved, the farming regime is sympathetically modified, and there is no shooting of hares, the most significant factor in the encouragement of hare numbers.

    20. Rules Of Renaissance Coursing
    Is a retired greyhound right for you, Renaissance coursing Rules.
    Rules of Renaissance Coursing
    The following rules are transcribed from Country Contentment's, published in 1638 by Gervase Markham. Subheads have been added to each rule for easier reference and have modernized and standardized the spelling of words. Otherwise, the text under "rule" is verbatim from the eighth edition of Markham's book. The "interpretation" is a translation of what the rule means.
    The Laws of the Leash or coursing, as they were commanded, allowed, and subscribed by Thomas late Duke of Norfolk, in the reign of Queen Elizabeth.
    1. The Fewterer Rule:
    First therefore it was ordered, that he which was chosen Fewterer, or letter-loose of the Greyhounds, should receive the Greyhounds match to run together into his Leash, as soon as he came into the field, and to follow next to the Hare-finder till he came unto the former and no horsemen nor Footman, on pain of disgrace, to go before them, or on either side, but directly behind, the space of forty yards or thereabouts.
    The Fewterer is given a pair of greyhounds to take by the leash and follows at a distance the person who finds and roots out the hare. Anyone on horseback or foot who doesn't stay about 40 yards behind the dogs will be publicly disgraced.
