I have 2 basset hounds round about a year and a half old that would like to start hunting with. Is that too old to start training them? What are some good training techniques? And is there anyone in Colorado that hunts that would like to get together for some hunting?

a year and a half old should not be any problem, at that age they are starting to get over some of thier puppy stages, and will be more focuses.
Start by laying some short trails using a drag and rabit scent to get them started looking, If anyone in your area hunts with beagles try to get with them to let your dogs run with thier beagles. Try to avoid the lightning fast beagles at first, so your hounds wont get discouraged. All of my hounds are run with beagles, and do just fine with keeping up with any speed now that they are running.
There are also alot of useful posts on bassetnet.com in the forum.
I realize this answer is very short, but if you have any questions feel free to drop me a line and i will try to answer what i can
