The scenario unwinds before the foxhunter's eyes and ears with the sound of the huntsman's hunting horn as hounds give chase. The fox or coyote maneuvers, circles, and runs through the country, cunningly evading the hounds. The music of hounds in "full cry" is laced with the sound of Huntsman's horn echoing off the woodlands and hills as they pursue the scent across plains or through woods, fields, creeks, marshes and over fences. The fox or coyote retires to its den to await another day of sport. Even slow days are fun as the scenery is always beautiful, fellow foxhunters are enjoyable, and watching the hounds as they attempt to find the scent is pleasurable.
