Running hounds in the summer
How many run their hounds in the summer? Are you afraid of the snakes for yourself and the hounds. I used to run in the summer but I lost some hounds to snake bites. I know some hounds make it after being bitten, but some don't. Most of mine didn't. Seems they always got bitten in the neck area and a ton of benedryl and the vet didn't hlep. I've not been bitten personally by a poisonous snake but know someone who has and it wasn't a pleasant ordeal. So I don't run in the summer anymore. I run until about the middle of May. I live in western Kentucky and we have an abundance of poisonous snakes. Thanks for listening.
