Following are some frequently asked questions about visiting and hunting with Farmington Hunt Club.

Hunting FAQs

  • What time are the Meets? +

    During cub hunting season meets are traditionally at 8 am with later times as the season progresses. All times are subject to change, pending scenting conditions and weather. Formal season meet times are usually 10 am, or later as the season and weather require. For details consult the Fixture card, the Hunt line, the website or contact us. Plan to arrive at least 15 minutes before the meet to allow time to be ready to move off promptly at the appointed time. Remember: slow down! Be courteous to our landowners and drive slowly (15mph or less) when approaching and entering the location of the meet, giving right of way to all pedestrians and animals.

  • What is the dress code? +

    In early cubbing season dress is informal and/or ratcatcher (tweed coat). Collared shirts such as “polo” shirts or turtlenecks, tucked in, are acceptable. Solid muted colors (except red) are preferred. Earth tone breeches, boots are preferred, and protective head gear (velvet covered cap with chin harness) are recommended for adults, and required for juniors.

    For Formal Hunting Season, Formal Attire is required Tuesdays and Saturdays, and Ratcatcher on Thursdays. After January 1st Ratcatcher is allowed on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
