Last night sat in the stand for about 7 hours until just after midnight. We both heard a hunting party running dogs near by followed by the sounds of the dogs baying when what we assumed they treed a bear followed by 3 gun shots (large caliber). After that all activity pretty much stopped around us so we waited a few hours then packed up and called it a night. I do know running dogs is legal (with permit) however I have never had a issue with it happening near any of my sites until last night. This happened in unit 14A.
