Think I have been in the general area years ago. There are also a few tracks that go up the hill from featherbed then you have to walk down towards the creek in the area where the tiger was found.  Must drop into Tomahawk on the way back next year.  It has been a long while since I was there.
Thanks for the info ia1nw22  beers
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.
