    Normally don't hunt them this time of year and have no problem with anybody that does. However, I always wanted to come up for this hunt and bring my camera along, maybe one of these years I will.

    Paul, the Ant Hunt is short for the Antelope Eaters hunt. It was held this weekend in Seligman. Last count I heard was 187 registered teams.

    I and Blake (photoshot) entered and only managed one fox, which went azz over heels when shot, and then ran off a cliff face to escape. We tracked his blood trail for over an hour and never found him. He was sly as a fox. LOL.

    Thanks. One of the better hunts, several of the hunts in years past have not been so successful.

    It ain't the blood thats bad, it's the smell of them darn dogs! Man, some are far beyond ripe by the time they hit trailer.

    Desert Ram (Marsha), you're one tough young lady. If you noticed, not many women hung around the dog trailer.

    By the way, I'm known as ThunderDan next door, AZ~Thunder here. Seems some of us have more than one forum name. LOL.
