Huangbo

‘One day, five people newly arrived and came to see Huangbo together. Four of them bowed. One did not bow, but drew a circle with his hand and stood there.
The master said, “Do you know a good hunting dog?”
The monk said, “He seeks the antelope’s scent.” 
The master said, “If the antelope has no scent, where does he seek it?”
The monk said, “He seeks the antelope’s tracks.”
The master said, “If the antelope has no track, where does he seek it?” 
He said, “That’s a dead antelope.”’

But will the dog still go running after it?
