The Fox Hunt
The requirements of the hunt followers for a 'successful' hunt are foxes to pursue (but not so many that the hounds are distracted from keeping to a line) and a chase which is as long as possible.
The opening meet of the season is generally held early in November. To ensure a long chase, and to make certain that there are foxes to be found in the open immediately after the meet. 'Early stoppers' are employed to close up earths (and badger setts, in which foxes may try to take refuge) during the night before or early in the morning of a hunting day.
