Whoso List to Hunt Summary

Whoso List to Hunt Summary

The speaker says that, for those folks who are into hunting, he knows where to find a hind (female deer). He is no longer interested in chasing it, but darn he can't help himself. He keeps going after it, despite the fact that it's driving him nuts. He knows he'll never catch her, and he says that anybody else who even tries won't get her either. Trying to catch this hind (which is really a code word for a "woman") could be dangerous. As it turns out, she belongs to Caesar, a not so-subtle-reference to Henry VIII (supposedly).
