How do you hunt with Bassets?

I completely understand that a basset could sniff out a trail and find a warren, but then what?

you couldn't shoot one because the dog would have scared it away and i doubt a basset could catch a rabbit ...so do you also need a whippet to catch one or terrier to dig them out?

Very good question, just hope i can answer it in a good way for you.
We rabbit hunt with our bassets, A rabbit will normally run in a circl or figure eight pattern while trying to escape the hounds. The hunters will wait in the gerneral area that the rabbit was jumped for the rabbit to come by and then shoot the rabbit.
We shoot very few of the rabbits we run though due to once you shoot it you can not run it and that is the main reason for me personally to be there.
I have had occasions in the past where Droop has acually cought the rabbit. but it is rare.
I hope this answers your questions and feel free to ask any that you think of.
