Sierra Buttes, Feather River to Sierra City

9/11: Last night, freaky noises - first thought it was from a dream but heard the animal(s) again. High-pitched like a coyote, but not the usual 'yip' and not like the howl of wolves - more like coyote shrikes! or mountain lions in heat. Gun season for something must have begun. Gun shots resounding all around me in the valley this morning. Two, too close to me this AM. Two big shotgun booms & I could heard the gunners' conversation. They didn't even get out of their pickup to shoot the guns; it was still running.
