Sir: Ian Leslie, writing about people who follow the hunt in 4x4 vehicles (letter, 17 February), asks: "In fairness ... on how many days a year do the hunt and its followers come out?" The answer is, a minimum of three days a week and often as many as six days a week on some hunts during the hunting season, which stretches from the end of August until the middle or end of March.

This is over half of the year that we have to tolerate these bullies chasing our wildlife to death and churning up our bridle paths in all weathers. They also have the cheek to tell those who protest against the hunt to "get a job". Unlike the six-days-a-week hunters, most of us do have one.
