To anyone familar with this area:
Just did this hike last weekend (4/6 & 4/7) and had a question. We stopped for the night near Farles Lake and had the pleasure of experiencing "dogs running" all night long. We set up camp for the night and about an hour after dark until about 9 AM then next morning we listed to a pack of 20+ dogs (best guess) running all through the woods howling non stop. We ran into someone who went with the dogs the next day, retrieving a lost dog, and asked them what was going on and they replied they were "running the dogs". After more questions they explained they were training dogs for flushing out deer for hunting. So my question is, is this a normal occurrence in this area or did we just get lucky? Needless to say not much sleep was had and more than once were scared awake as a dog came running though camp.
