Fox Hunting in Afghanistan
We recently received an email from one
of our many friends. Major Rick Jochim
spent his last two days before shipping out of Fort Benning in March of
hunting with the Midland Fox Hounds, albeit via a 4-wheeled vehicle.
We were pleased to get the following
message from Major Jochim:
As you may have heard, I am in Afghanistan now - chasing Taliban instead
of foxes. Didn't have but a few months between, Bosnia and here. I miss my
hounds and my kennel huntsman reports they miss me too.
Saw a big silver-back dog fox last week while inspecting an ammo bunker
site. He bolted from his earth and made a line for a rocky covert. I found
the only blade of grass within a mile and formed a injured rabbit call - I
called him back, he made a large circle around me then went to ground in
his original earth. He didn't know how happy he made me - I left him the
meaty part of my MRE to say mananah, thanks...
...and thanks for sending the Midland updates, G'night
MFH & Huntsman, Cedar Top Foxhounds
