No. Hounds chase the quarry by scent and we follow on horseback. When the hounds lose the scent the hunt is over. The focus is on watching the hounds work.
No. We do not stock the hunt country with coyotes. They live here naturally. If we do not find the scent of a coyote it is called a blank day, but the hounds and riders still enjoy the hunt. The fun is in watching the hounds work.
