Fox hunting

Is fox hunting permitted in the south using dogs only, not on horse-back? A guy told me he still does it and I was surprised it's still a thing here.
 
So what is it that the Beagles chase? And do they catch and kill their prey on occasion? Or is it just a scented-trail with no actual quarry like a drag-hunt?
Beagles chase a hare, rare enough to kill maybe one at start and end of season to keep the dogs hunt hungry.

Make great pets the ones who don’t like to hunt.

So I take it yer man that said he takes part in fox hunts with dogs was telling porkies?
I don’t think so as far as i know hunting with dogs and horses is still going on.A quick Google says foxhunting is alive and well. As a kid I used to go hunting with beagles but that’s many moons ago.
