Episode 33: Lancashire Hunt Sabs
Lancashire Hunt Sabs tackle some of the most difficult sabbing terrain in this country. However, the hills and fells of the Lake District aren't all negative: they also offer a number of tactical advantages to sabs.

Traps and snares are all too common within hunt country. You'll no doubt have come across loads of them while sabbing, and likely when spending non-sab time in the countryside as well.
