The ban was put in place during the foot-and-mouth crisis to stop the disease spreading.
More than 250 countryside enthusiasts turned out for Beaufort Hunt in Gloucestershire - the first to get the go-ahead.
And more hunts are restarting during the week, including those in north Wales and Northamptonshire.
Vital for jobs
Hunt supporters say that about 1,000 people rely on the sport for work and money, and they could have lost their jobs if the ban continued.
Farmers also want to control the number of foxes with the lambing season about to start.
But people who think that hunting is cruel will be disappointed to see the return of fox hunting.
