Happy Commemoration of St. Hubert Day!
(d. 11/3/727)

(Bishop of Liège from 721 CE - patron of hunters & dogs.)

There are so many fine hunting songs, it's hard to choose:

        I always will remember,
        'Twas a year ago November,
        I went out to hunt some deer
        On a morning bright and clear.
        I went and shot the maximum the game laws would allow,
        Two game wardens, seven hunters, and a cow.

                "Hunting Song," Tom Lehrer

ALSO:
        In ahind yon oul fail dyke
        I wot there lies a new slain knight
        Naebody kens that he lies there
        But his hawk and hound and his lady fair
        His hawk and hound and his lady fair
        _ _ _ _ _
        
        His hawk is tae the hunting gane
        His hound to bring a wild fowl hane
        His wife has taken another mate
        So we can make our dinner sweet
        We can make our dinner sweet

                "Twa Corbies," Child #26

Does that include poachers?

Come all ye lads of high renown
Who like to drink strong ale that's brown,
And bring those lofty pheasants down
With powder, shot & gun.

Try singing 'lads of high renown' to the tune of Goose Bay.
