Judgement has been reserved in the appeal case of two Somerset men convicted of illegally hunting deer.
Judgement has been reserved until 19 October
Richard Down and Adrian Pullivant, of the Quantock Staghounds, were convicted in June and each fined £500.
The case against them was based largely on video evidence gathered by the League Against Cruel Sports.
Both men say they were hunting within the new law. After the three day hearing Mr Justice Wynn Williams reserved judgement until 19 October.
At the trial of Down and Pullivant, magistrates heard anti-hunt campaigners filmed two hounds as they chased deer across Exmoor a year after the Hunting Act made hunting with hounds illegal.
The League claimed their video proved a breach of the new Hunting Act, at the hearing in June.
