In the dense mountain forest, there lived herds of stout and strong red deer.
They were alert and suspicious animals and ran about with agility.
It was very difficult for people to catch them.
When some people came to the mountains to hunt, they would first seek for yu (supervisor of the mountain forests in ancient times),
request him to be their guide, and inquire in detail about the red deer's pattern of activities and their usual haunts.
Only with full preparations would they carry their knives and arrows, lead their hounds and enter the dense forest for the siege.
As a result, all the red deer dashed into their ring of encirclement, and one by one fell dead under the rainfall of arrows.
But when some other people came to the mountains to hunt, they would not first seek for yu to fmd out the situation, but rushed rashly into the forest.
As a result, after a busy day they couldn't find a single trace of red deer and could only return de jectedlywith empty hands.
