Musky showed no interest in the suspension bridge, but I feared as Tyler and I crossed that he would attempt to swim the creek. It's not very wide, but it was really moving and there were a lot of boulders and rocks. If he got caught in the strong current, which would be unavoidable, he could get in real trouble.
Sure enough once I got midway he made a dash for the creek, I yelled at the top of my lungs, "NO!" and he stopped in the water but short of the rapids. That's all it took and I didn't have to yell at him again.
Still, I didn't cross all the way for fear he might try again.
