SCENT AND IT'S RELEVANCE TO FOX HUNTING
 
Foxhounds hunt by scent. They follow with their noses the scent that has been left on the ground by the running fox from the scent glands between the pads of his feet. 
 
The hounds will not begin to chase until they have found and settled on the scent that the fox has laid upon the ground as he broke cover and began to run.  This can take several minutes...........

'Hunting Anarchy' DVD
(warning - contains hunt supporters swearing) 
Latest extract added 7th Dec 2008

 ........Therefore the hounds are usually quite some distance behind the fox, until the last few minutes when they close in for the kill. 
It is normal for hounds to be five, ten or even more minutes behind the fox........

....Additionally, the fox is initially able to run faster than the hounds, and at first will outrun them.  This will not help him, as all the time he is leaving a scent upon the ground, and this is what the hounds are following. 
 
The hounds have better stamina, and as the fox tires and slows, the hounds will begin to close the gap between them and the fox.....
