Excerpt from The Complete Foxhunter
That hunting was never so popular as it is just now is a fact which admits of no dispute. Practically every inch of the country where riding is possible is hunted by one or more packs of hounds, and where the riding is bad, and there are no coverts for foxes - or too much population, as in Lancashire - there are harrier packs; While where there are neither foxhounds nor harriers, foot-beagles will surely be found. Otter-hound packs, too, travel all over the country during the summer months; and the crowds which are present at the August meets of the Devon and Somerset staghounds must be seen to be appreciated.
