Fox hunting is something I never took part to, and it appears a bit different from the other group-hunting types, like ambushing roe deers for example. I had been walking by myself in the wild a few times recently looking for mushrooms, but as they seem more seldom this year than they use to be in my favorite spots (I made a few tries but not very successful indeed), this outing was a welcome opportunity to come back to the woods and enjoy the autumn colors and the particular light of this season.
We all met before 8am at the hunters community place, the night had been quite cold for early october, like 2,7° C from what I checked myself, and we were to find spots in the fields with the typical frost white on the grass, proving that in places it went below O°C. The chief hunter reminded the rules in a short speech and pre-planified the groups of shooters around the blocks of woods that they intended to comb.
But to be frank, I'm not sure I'd be ready to apply the kiss-of-life solution if the 22 dogs happened to faint in there...
It's always a pleasure for me to watch a scene from one of my cult movies, Lady Killers, a movie of course directed by the Cohen brothers.
