All's well that ends well!

Foxhunters know that hunting is all about the performance of the hounds.  We, in the field, are merely spectators, and as such we follow hounds as best we can.    So today, the hounds got on the scent and they ran... and ran... They went up from the trail below I-20, over the next hill.  We followed and could hear them briefly.  Joseph said a few hounds heard the lead group and ran toward them, probably turning the coyote.  At which point, the hounds ran out of sight and out of hearing.  They disappeared and did not return or respond to voice or horn. Now we know that they were so far away, they probably couldn't hear the horn.  This is a very difficult moment when the huntsman has no idea what direction and where the hounds are.  A few riders with radios went to ride trails crossing the fixture and around the perimeter, looking for a track, a sighting, a sound.  Nothing... 

The truck and GPS were used- and again, nothing on the fixture. 5 couple were still out- and finally from the hill near the road,  Joseph got a beep - and the tracker found them - and Joseph and Kim found them - and the good news was they were all together, still hunting.. as a pack! 

So, I'm looking forward to hunting behind these hard hunting hounds - and keeping up with them!
