Pack strings can be beautiful when seen clicking along a distant hillside loaded with the wares of hunters but when you’re stuck behind them on a narrow gravel road it can be frustrating!
Maybe I’m just impatient or as my buddy says “It’s not that I’m impatient it’s that I don’t have time to wait.”
The fact is that horses and mules will be on the same public road as you are at some point this season. It can be a challenge to get a pack string to step aside especially after several hours of trail travel that restricts their movements. A wide road is a relief to the horses and the people riding them.
Stock animals may react to a fast moving vehicle or a sudden noise like a car horn and that can put the stock and other people in danger. Approach slowly and be patient.
We all use our public roadways in different ways – enjoy the ride even if it’s behind a pack string that seems to be travelling at a snails pace. The rat race you left behind this morning should stay there.
