There's something propulsive about the very concept, violent but methodical as well. Music for these sequences often taps into both calculating intelligence and something deeply primal. I'm thinking about music along the lines of these examples:

"The Fox Hunt" from The Final Conflict (Jerry Goldsmith)

"Elk Hunt" from The Last of the Mohicans (Trevor Jones)

"The Buffalo Hunt" from Dances With Wolves (John Barry)

"The Hunt" from The Lost World (John Williams)

"The Hunt" from Marnie (Bernard Herrmann)

"The Hunt" from Planet of the Apes (Jerry Goldsmith)

Obviously these represent a broad scope with respect to how endangered the protagonists are in context of the films, which has an effect on the music. For example, the excerpt from Planet of the Apes is positively frantic, while that from Dances With Wolves is comparatively euphoric (either version), but they all have a momentum about them. Can anybody point out music with similar qualities?

A couple more that come to mind are another Goldsmith "Fox Hunt," from THE LIST OF ADRIAN MESSENGER, and "La Caccia" from Morricone's THE BIG GUNDOWN. And one more: "The Death Hunt" from Herrmann's ON DANGEROUS GROUND.

I particularly like John Barry's "Corrine Put Down" cue from Moonraker though this may not be quite the style you're looking for.

Add Rozsa's 'Hawking' scene from 'Knights of the Round Table' and the whaling scene from 'All The Brothers Were Valiant', and 'Pursuit' from 'The Naked City' and Rosenthal's 'The Hunt' from 'Becket'.

One might add the boar hunt from DIANE. It's an idiotic bit of scripting, and I've never quite been able to come to terms with the way Rozsa handled it. Don't forget THE MACOMBER AFFAIR either.

Another fine selection is "Fox Hunt" from Waxman's UNTAMED. It's restrained and ceremonial, heralding the hunt rather than underscoring it. (I've never seen the film, so I don't know the actual context.)

THANK YOU! For me, this eclipses any/all of the others! It's brilliant!

As for context, it's a fox hunt! Robust, colorful and meant to replicate what the hunt is all about (i.e., not done in a comedic or overly serious manner).

Also there's Williams' cue from The Rare Breed suite "Scottish Romeo/The Hunt" - can't recall the scene from the movie since it's been a million years since I last saw it!

So would I.

There's a suite from the film on one of the Mancini vinyl recordings.

'The Battle of The Salt Plains' from THE BALLAD of BIG AL ( a pack of Allosaurs hunt down and kill a Diplodocus ), a fantastic and exhilarating track which is included in Benjamin Bartlett's score CD for WALKING WITH BEASTS.
