The recreation of seeking out (generally fluffy) animals, for the purpose of killing them, occasionally in order to obtain food, more often for sport or to collect trophies.

Laconic Notes

  • Stag :: Large quadruped with horns -- usually hunted with aid of dogs (the more the better) and bows and arrows, in order to stay out of range of the horns.
  • Boar :: Smaller, aggressive quadruped, with tusks -- usually hunted with the aid of dogs and with very long spears, in order to stay away from the tusks.
  • Foxes :: Small predatory quadrupeds -- usually hunted by chasing them with dogs and letting the dogs tear the fox apart. Foxes are rarely hunted as food.
  • Rabbits :: Small burrowing quadrupeds -- usually hunted by sending trained dogs or ferrets down the burrow, who kill the rabbit underground and bring back the corpse.
  • Otters :: Aquatic quadruped -- usually hunted (again) with dogs. Also usually hunted for sport not food.
  • Game birds (geese, ducks, pheasant, partridge, grouse etc.) -- usually hunted with dogs to chase them into taking off, then with bow and arrow to bring them down, and dogs (again) to fetch the corpses back. Again more usually killed for food.
  • Peasants
  • Bores :: Loud bipeds -- usually hunted with blunt instruments (to extend the kill and add the pain fcator), in order to benefit the general populace.
