I live in england, and quite a few years ago they banned hunting live foxes I'm not sure what they do now to control the population? But that didn't stop the hunters! We just have drag hunts either with humans or someone riding a horse way out in front, it's really common in england I have at least 3 hunt clubs in my area that I know about! It looks super fun I definitely want to go some day! And fantastic pre-eventing season practice.
