Lord Reynard character jug produced in China by Enesco of Itasca, Illinois, circa 2010. Lord Reynard is dressed as a huntsman for today's hunt. Traditionally in England, the huntsman was the person whose responsibility it was to manage an organized hunt, such as a foxhunt, and possibly look after the hounds as well. Soon, anyone participating on a hunt became referred to as a huntsman. Today the name simply refers to one who hunts or who practices hunting. After generations of English huntsman, fox hunting has recently been outlawed in the United Kingdom. A riding crop forms the handle of the jug.
