"Kenneth Whitehead traces the history of the hunting of deer over the last thousand years, from the days before the Norman conquest up to the present. In Saxon England a favourite method of hunting deer was to drive them into ambush in a 'deer haye' where they were then surrounded and killed with spears and arrows. Gradually, as other types of chase became popular, such as coursing, hunting deer on horseback with hounds, hunting - but not killing - individual kept deer (which became known as carted deer hunting), and stalking with a rifle." "...In addition this book - for the first time - attempts to list and give a brief history of every pack of hounds that has hunted deer in Britain, and there are chapters on the history of deer legislation in England and Scotland over the centuries."
