Fox Hunt Planned at Roundhead
Bluffton area hunters are invited
to participate in a fox hunt planned
this Saturday, at Roundhead. The
hunt w’ill get under way at 9:00 a. m.
The drive will consist of several
hunts with roundups of several small
areas. Hunters will be divided into
four groups for closing in on each
section. Captains will command each
side.
All hunters will be permitted to
carry shotguns, but rifles and dogs
are banned. After an area is en
circled, every hunter will have the
privilege of firing providing the fox
is within range and none of the other
hunters are in line of fire. Safety will
be stressed at all times.
Noonday lunch will be served by
the Roundhead Parent Teachers As
sociation.
Fox hunts in the above named area
are becoming increasingly popular
and there is usually a good sized del
egation on hand from this communi
ty participating in the fun.
The drives are usually successful
and at the last one held a week ago,
3 foxes w’ere shot and several others
escaped through the lines. To prevent
the latter, or at least cut down on
the chance of escape, the roundups
will be concentrated on smaller areas.
Attempting to encircle too large an
area at one time gives the fox too
good a chance to break through the
line or outsmart the hunter by hid
ing until he has passed by.
Several hundred men participate in
the drives held every other Saturday
as a rule.

found Bluffton adding 16 more
points to its total, while the Wild

In the last two periods, six Bluff

Neil Schmidt paced the Bluffton
