More about dogs and hunting

Edward, Duke of York (c.1373 - 1415), who wrote a book about hunting, thought that dogs were among God's finest works of creation. A proper hunting pack would consist of assorted types of hounds, some good at hunting by their sense of smell, some good at hunting by sight, and others powerfully built with strong jaws to bring down the quarry.

To hunt the wild boar was regarded as the greatest challenge. This most dangerous beast could kill a man with a single stroke from its tusks.
