Two men who illegally hunted deer with hounds are appealing against their convictions.
Down (l) and Pillivant (r) deny contravening the Hunting Act
Richard Down, 44, and Adrian Pillivant, 36, of the Quantock Staghounds were convicted and fined in June at Bristol Magistrates' Court.
Anti-hunt campaigners filmed two hounds chasing deer on Exmoor. The League Against Cruel Sports (LACS) said the deer were chased for more than an hour.
On Tuesday, the pair appeared at their appeal at Taunton Crown Court.
They have always denied contravening the Hunting Act.
The case is expected to last three days.
