dc.description.abstract Two hunters are trying to hunt some ducks. One tells the other to shoot while he blows his nose. The second replies that his fingers are numb from the cold and that he can't pull the trigger. In 1830 hunting legally ceased to be the prerogative of the aristocratic classes. Parisian bourgeoisie immediately took to the new fancy and engaged in hunting around the forests and countryside of Paris. A new “fashion” was born, and members of the Parisian middle class developed a hitherto unknown snobbism and passion for this sport. Deyeux even wrote a poem called “La Chassomanie”. By 1860, some 155,000 hunting licenses had been issued, while one estimated that some 450,000 poachers were actively involved in hunting and fishing. While in the beginning of 1836 some 6,000 hunters were caught hunting without a license, this number increased substantially to 21,000 hunters fined for poaching in 1860.
