    Ya, the houndsmen on my side of the mountain are pretty bumbed over the banning of dogs for bears and bobcats. The anti's have really taken away a passion that has been past down through generations.

    Nice looking bear packer58. The cinnamon colored bears are nice. The banning of useing dogs for bears and bobcat is sad. It's a cool sound hearing them in the distance trailing. I'm not a houndsman but I've heard or seen them in the distance while hunting deer. Must be cool watching them work.

    The dogs were awesome, there were a couple other houndsmen with us during the hunt and once the track was lined out several more hounds were put in the chase. The closer we got to the tree the louder the roar, at the tree it was unreal.
