Hunt organisers are predicting turn-outs will match or beat those of recent years on Boxing Day.
At least 16 hunts are taking place across the West Midlands with two in Staffordshire, five in Shropshire and four in Worcestershire.
Five will also take place in Herefordshire. Patrick Webster of Newport's Albrighton Hunt, said they had farmers' support.
"This year we have even more people who are keen to go hunting," he said.
