    Do any of you remember the story of the Ghost Hound in Full Cry magazine. It was written quite a few years ago. I've tried to find it again but haven't had any luck.

    Let me know if it's the story you were looking for.

    It's a great story, about lion hunting in the AZ desert. (being vague so no spoiler alerts for anyone that may want to read it.)

    Robster those are good stories. I have experienced some of them in Az. Still have friends that run lion/ Bear hunting operations in Az and NM along with Elk, antelope, mule deer, coues deer. If you have ever chased hounds through the snow covered mountains there is nothing like it. A once in a lifetime experience

    TJRANGER, I hunted lion three times on horseback with hounds. Chris Todd was the guide that I hunted with. All three were the trip of a lifetime with the last being the best as my son was with me. 20 miles a day for 5 days each trip on horseback through some of the most beautiful desert country this upstate New Yorker has ever dreamed existed. First time was Bloody Basin, the next two were all in NW AZ near Kingman and the Jualapai Mountains. I am currently looking to move out west with my horses and spend my days dry ground hunting for bobcat or lion. I don't care if I ever harvest/kill one, just live the lifestyle. In the last 5 years, I have taken one cottontrail and one hare. I run every weekend. no desire to take one. When people ask me why I don't shoot(I always have my gun with me) I just tell them.......dead rabbits/hare don't leave tracks. I'm in it for the hounds. I let my hunting companions(if i actually hunt with someone else) shoot.

    Sounds like we might need to start a book club. I like the mystery books. I probably have 15 or 20 James Patterson novels, mostly all hard backs. They are just collecting dust. Just an idea, but what if we brought them to the 2021 hunt and let those serious readers take their choice. A new James Patterson novel sells for about $22. My wife has those lady oriented love story books. We could pass them around each year. What do you think??

    Dibs on the ladies romance novels ;)

    Seriously, I do read a lot. Not a fan of TV and definitely not a fan of the news lately. I've put together a nice library of topics I enjoy readingy. I usually read a lot of hunting(hound hunting) and westerns. One of my favorites is "Hell, I Was There" by Elmer Keith

    Louis L'amour is my favorite western writer.

    The is something magnetic about the old west and western books. A part of the Navy working uniforms always seemed to be a western book in the back pocket of the denims.

    The Daybreakers by Louis L'amour is right up there with Lonesome Dove as my all time favorite western followed closely by The Snowy Range Gang (Mike Blakely).

    I wrote a lot of book reports using Louis L’Amour books throughout my school years. My dad had a whole collection of them. His books were some of my favorite reading when I was younger

    Running La. Try buying a copy now. The price of it has gone through the roof!!! I just sent my copy to my son in Wyoming to read. He's loving the book just like his old man!!

    Huntsman, Great book list I own 7 of those books already! Thanks for the other recommendations, I will add them to my "to buy" list. I'll try to post a pic of my library later. And as for Brett Vaughn, I have been following him on Youtube for years. Actually, I am one of his Patreon supporters.

    Chasin' Tail has a pretty good video out as well
