    to block the earths before fox hunt , so fox can't go to ground
  6. That's the one...to keep the hunt going on longer.or to keep the field happy.(and so they don't have to dig)..the terrier man would have to go round all the fox earths.and stop them up prior to the hunt..then when the hunt was over he'd have to go round and un stop them all....there many descriptions or art work on fox hunting.and there's many prints called "the old earth stopper"...or just "earth stopper"........
