    Trail hunting and drag hunting are two completely different beasts - drag hunting follows a scent over a "course" of fences, and they have a number of "lines" of increasing difficulty.

    Trail hunting has a man made scent, laid to mimic the route a fox might have taken in the old days - it produces a day much more like old fashioned hunting - you start earlier and finish later than drag hunting, but it is much less fast and furious.

    Jumping is more or less optional - depends on the pack you pick and the country you cross - see my other post.

    Exactly hence I don't know anyone other than the above poster saying all hunting in the UK is drag hunting these days, that just isn't really the case.
