Fox Hunt   Fox Hunt Game   Scout Game

This Game is meant for Boy Scouts.
This Game should be done Outside.
This is a great activity after a fresh snow. A large open area (such as a camp) is needed. Everyone must have a buddy for the game.

A pair of scouts volunteer to be the foxes. They must remain together throughout the game.

The foxes run off together from the starting location.
Four or five minutes later, the leader releases the hounds (all the other scouts).

The hounds track the foxes and try to catch them before the leader's whistle signals the end of the game. This should be about 30-40 minutes.

A few 'rules':

The hounds win if they catch both foxes by tagging them.
The foxes win if they get back to the starting location within 10 minutes after the whistle, but not before the whistle.

For more than a dozen scouts, have more pairs of foxes and split the hounds. It is two or more separate games taking place at once.
