For hunting fawns and deer1 use Indian2 hounds; for they are strong, big, speedy and plucky, and these qualities render them capable of hard work. Hunt the calves in spring, since they are born at that season.

1 The red deer is meant. Hunting the calves immediately after their birth seems a poor game; but no doubt they were good eating.

2 Thibet dogs, called by Grattius (159) Seres.
