One came running full bore in when my hunting buddy was calling. I picked him up in the woods about 100 yards away. Now if he goes to his left he is mine, but of course he went to the right and and came down the fence line towards me.
He was protected by trees until he got right up on me and then did a beeline in the opposite direction. He was moving to fast for me to get a shot at him.
Still, it had my heart beating. My hunting buddy and his son saw a couple earlier but they too did not present a clean shot.
We walked miles and miles through the snow today.
Bought some new cabelas rubber boots with 2000 grams thinsulate in them and they kept my feet nice and warm.
Maybe next time will be better. Good news is I didn't have skin anything today
Understanding wind currents and thermals in hilly, broken terrain can often be incredibly frustrating. I've found that collecting and storing milkweed seed pods during the late summer has made me a better hunter in the bluff country that I hunt. These little feather like seed dispersers will float on the lightest of air currents and will show you what the wind is not only doing right at you're location but more importantly down range. I like to use the off season to float them...
