My favorite part has to be the calm right before the chain slammin' screaming strike. I like the calm afterwards too, where you forget to breathe listening so intently, just waiting for those few barks that let you know whats goin on, and where there headed.

After that its those few screams and the roar that comes when they got him jumped. Then when you get the frst glance at the tree, and see all the dogs are there, you fell relieved and less rushed. Or when the first dog see's you coming and the tail starts to crank and they get back ou on the tree and bark harder. That's where it's all at for me.

The strike has to be my favorite part. You're no where without it, and you can just tell everything by just a few barks and that look in the dogs' eye.

my favorite part....Hmmm....depends on species....
bear-Oh I love that blood pumping feeling when your sneaking in on that walking bay show and for the last two hours your walking and stopping dogs are baying and shutting up and baying and shutting up finally you look through the brush and get to SEE the show.OH WHAT A FEELING! LOL
Lion-that feeling when you been looking for three days for a track and you come around the corner and theres those dots that look nothing like the five million other tracks you've checked,you get up to them and your hand won't even cover them and you got take a damn long step to cover a stride.OH WHAT A FEELING! LOL
Cats-That feeling when the dogs have been locating and locating for a half hour,the winds whipping and finally somebody just starts hitting it,walk in and the dogs about fifty feet away standing on his hind legs treeing,follow the wind and theres a big old tom layed out on a mistletoe patch with that damn I zigged when I shoulda zagged look.OH WHAT A FEELING! LOL
Coon-I love that honest strike.You know turn the dogs loose,no babbling,alls quite 'cept maybe some bullfrogs or crickets,then that big ole bawl that breaks the anticipation.OH WHAT A FEELING!

Mike thanks alot for this post,now I'm feeling all warm and fuzzy.LOL

Which part of the race do I like?

Well I'm telling ya the truth here, my favorite part of the race is being in the woods, breathing clean air, no cell phone or noise pollution. Being with family or friends and thinking why on this earth "A BARK EATER" would want to end it for all. All the other parts of the race is just a extra for me.

I really like to listen to a couple dogs cold trailing on a cat, I'm sitting in a sunny spot maybe on a log or rock and soaking up the sun listening and wondering if they'll jump it or not, I love it.
