A VERMONT FOX HUNT
I left the house at six o'clock one morning and arrived on the hunting ground at seven. There was about seven inches of snow and good running. In a short time there was something doing. The dog started a fox and he went about a mile on what we call Hodge Hill, and then turned south and ran a mile on to Lime Hill, and then he went into a -big swamp, and made a turn, and came out and ran in the road tor a half mile until he came to a cross road. He followed that as far as Cook's Hill, and from there on to Keith's Hill and took one turn there and made for the hill I was on.
1 had seen the fox several times and he was trying all his old tricks to fool the dog, but that don't work with her. She is very fast. Well, to get back to the hunt, he came about eight rods below me, broadside. I had him covered with my Winchester pump, and pulled the trigger, and ended one of the many good hunts I have had.
