    Holy Crap! Today is one of the hardest hikes I have done. Only 5 miles but straight up, nasty boulder, rock slide and DG death chutes. Did a bunch of roading and rigging, only small bear so we decided to go hike into the same drainage as Sunday. Tons of sign, we only got about a mile in and 3 dogs opened up hard and started trailing. The 5 other dogs soon pulled in and the race was on, in a matter of 10 minutes they scaled one of the nastiest mountain/cliff death traps I've had the pleasure of chasing dogs up. 2900' and 2.5 hrs later we were at the top and hearing dogs bawling hard and treed. Thing was we are bear hunting and I found lion tracks (I always have a lion tag), they had the lion treed for at least 2hrs before we finally got within 150 yards of the histeria. We sat listening and looking for the cat when suddenly, silence. Then all of a sudden dogs are running everywhere trying to line some thing out, the lion jumped tree and went directly over the next ridge into another canyon. We agreed that we where done and the dogs appeared to be as well. Called the hounds off and proceeded to rock climb and lower, lift and pull hounds out to flatter ground. Sometimes I wonder if I'm mentally stable doing this type of hunting but when I hear my dogs I know, iI'm definitely not!

    Sounds like a good time once the soreness wears off! Did you get any pics of the treed cat or was he gone by the time you got to him?

    Wish I did get pics, we were to far out and never did see the cat in the tree. Tracks is all we found, tagging the cat would have been nice for sure. Every time those dogs light up and I turn loose I kinda cringe and wound how this will go. Free casting the dogs in dry ground for me is the most effective way to get a hunt going but you never know for sure what they'll do or where they'll go.

    I went back today, my buddy lost a dog yesterday so went back to get her today. I did another 8 miles dropping in from the top. Spent most of my time today trying to find her in a very bad cliff/chute area that I'm tracking her too. Her signal is somewhere in the middle of this cliff. I was above, below and east and west and I know shes on a shelf somewhere in that face. I hate this part of hound hunting, dogs get hurt and dogs die. My friend is the real deal, he can't hiike much anymore being 70 but he's been their for 2 days keeping a signal on her and calling her. I did everything I could today besides kill myself although it was close. Got a few pics of the country ad my young dogs.

    The ridge is pretty deceiving, its is and bad mofo. I'm looking east, that north side is where she's at. I'm heading back tomorrow. I'll get pics from the north face.

    Great pics. Looks like a hike and a half. Did you find the lost dog?

    We know which cliff face she's on. I couldn't lay eyes on her, putting a team together and bringing my climbing gear. Its a really bad spot.
