About Pakuranga Hunt Inc
Hunting traditions have evolved over the centuries to bring them in line with the changing times or country characteristics. However in reality hunting continues to be practiced internationally following the original basic principles.
Hunting etiquette is the 'unwritten code' associated with the sport and encompasses those tried and true traditions of procedure, dress and conduct that have been found to be practical to ensure the hunt day is organised, safe, enjoyable and in the best interest of the sport.
These traditions include simple courtesies. On arrival to a hunt (referred to as a meet) it is customary to greet the Master with ¿Good Morning Master¿. It is also expected that when Landowners are present they are acknowledged by members with greetings and thanks.
As in all sports there is terminology associated with hunting. For example ¿Hunts¿ are referred to as such and not as ¿Hunt Clubs¿. ¿Hounds¿ are not called ¿dogs¿ and they ¿speak¿ or ¿give tongue¿ and do not bark. This is referred to as ¿music¿ and not barking.
