Deer and More Deer

Actually the strange hunting adventure of 1912, deer intruding on the chase of a fox, had a precedent some fifty years before . . .
Deer Hunting, under the law, is at an end for the present season. In the eastern portion
of Henrico county, as well as in Chesterfield, Charles City and New Kent, deer have been more abundant the last season than for many years.— 
In New Kent last Wednesday, a party of gentlemen started from the neighborhood of the court house for a fox chase, but they had only gone a short distance when three fine deer broke cover before them, and led the pack off to the nearest water course.

-Richmond Daily Dispatch, January 18, 1858
