<strong>Hunt meet at Lady Eaton's property, ca. 1930. From the City of Toronto Archives, Fonds 1244, Item 1322.</strong><BR><br><br /> Since the turn of the century, the <a href="http://www.torontohunt.com/About-Us/History-2.aspx">Toronto Hunt</a>, founded in 1843, didn't engage in fox-hunting proper, but rather drag-hunting. This entailed spreading scent to lead hounds and hunters over a pre-determined but natural course—simulating the route a fleeing fox might take—over all manner of terrain and jumps to challenge and thrill hunters.
