New Hunting Equipment for Beans

Most every morning I take Beans out on a hunt.  Rather than using her retractable leash I use this which is a fish stringer I found at a lake in South Dakota a few years back.  This works well as I can let go of it as she runs off after whatever and not ding up the retractable reel or fill it full of dirt.  Only problem with the dark blue nylon cord of the fish stringer is that I found it hard to see in the forest.  In the desert it was okay plus I can see her better in the wide open.  
The other day I got the idea to make a new hunting rope for her. 

The new one is made of white paracord.  
I made it twice as long as the fish stringer cord.

This one has proved to work out very well.
The white really shows up against the forest floor.
  I am able to track her down much easier at the conclusion of the chase.  

I have been searching for a bell to attach the end of the fish stringer for a long time and have not been able to find one yet.  It would be nice to have when we get back to the desert as it can clang along on the rocks and help me track her down.

Beans, the fearless hunter! She certainly doesn't mind wearing the harness or being attched to the rope. What a good cat.
