In the first place, they don't take to the scent as rf the wolf was their natural prey and, m the next, they want more tongue to let us know where they are in these intermrnable forests. Here we have no avenues, lrke those of St. Germarn or F ontarnebleau - no royal road to hounds rn chase so, with an old wolf that wrll run strarght on end for fifteen or twenty leagues, holdrng to strong cover so long as he can find rt, your chance of lrvrng with hounds would be a very poor one rf you had not plenty of musrc to rndrcate the lure. Again, young fox, hounds are so grven to not that the drfficulty of gettrng at them wrth a whip m our deep covers rs all but msuperable and, conse quently, more tractable and less wrlful hounds surt our purpose far better.
