A city is larger than a town. New York City, Boston, Miami, and Los Angeles are examples of cities. All state or country capitals are cities; cities usually have some significant political, economic or cultural importance. The word town refers to a smaller population center. And a very small population center - even smaller than a town - is called a village.
To complicate things, the central part of a city (especially the main commercial or business area) is called downtown. If you live downtown, you live right in the middle of the main action of the city - and it's more expensive to live downtown than to live in one of the other neighborhoods.
At the end of a hunt the deer will normally stand at bay frequently this will be in water. It is the job of the hounds to keep the deer at bay until one of the official marksmen arrives and dispatches it humanely at close quarters. Due to the use of a firearm hunt followers must keep at a safe distance away.
