Drawing a blank

Posted by Joe Michael on May 14, 2006

I note comments regarding "drawing a blank" referring to drawing a blank ticket in a lottery. I suggest that "drawing a blank" could also refer to a huntsman "drawing" [sending his hounds in to hunt] a "blank" [referring to a day or covert w/o game]
