Comment on announcement re "Opening Hunt for Headwater Hounds"
I am disappointed that a hound club has started hunting in an area that has usually been quiet and I wonder if they will have their hounds howling and guns shooting every Sunday when we are used to hiking behind Pinion Hills near Sands Park where it is usually quiet. We are used to being courteous to hunters during hunting season and stay out of the area but now do we have to also put up with most Sundays disturbing wildlife (deer and jackrabbits were running past me and my dog and my dog was nervous with the shooting)and us as we hike? I know Britain outlawed the hunt years ago but I guess it lingers in this county. I have seen the hounds running by themselves as well through Pinion Hills. I assume they are hunting on private land, the Everett ranch? or other owners? Many of the owners in that area are very particular about sportsman crossing their property, hunting, etc. so I assume they have permission. I am not looking forward to hearing all the guns and dogs every Sunday. I will talk to neighbors and see how they feel.
