Hi guys !
any success yet ?

I just came back from my spot and stalk hunting trip, the weather was horrible, wind, cold, rain !
we were suppose to stay there until saturday but with weather like this we couldn't go on one more day of being wet to the bone specialy after using all back up clothes we took for the trip, the only day we have had without rain was sunday afternoon the day we got there and today early morning for about 2 hours . But the hunt was awesome .

I am gonna have to do few things here at home and then load the pictures for u , so I should be back in few hours

Monday May 22

We got up early and left the camp around 5:00 am and walked few miles from camp .
after about few hours of walk we saw small group of deer feeding nearby, took few pictures of them and continued our walk hoping to spot what we came looking for!

around noon the weather start to change and we could see a storm coming in from the west , the clouds were dark and heavy , moisture was in the air, we knew the weather gonna turn ugly soon, but we decided to continue and if rain fall then we head back to camp.

By 2:00 we reached an area we never been on before, the forest was really dark and green, the wood were thick and old, we knew we were in the right place for bears but so far we haven't seens any tracks, so we decided to walk the bush trying to find signs of bears .

after about 30 minutes of walking we saw a bear den not too far from a small creek , we start investigating the den in hope of finding fresh signs or activity, but after close checkup we realized the den was not active for over a month and all the signs we saw were old and useless!

and just like that without warning rain stasrt falling hard, and few minutes later thunderstorm, hail and everything else was on top of us, We were 5 hours walk from our camp, here we are in the middle of nowhere trying to hide from the weather !

after quick talk We decided to head back to camp and wait for the storm to pass and then go hunt again hopefully later on in the evening.

We reached the camp around 6 oclock in the evening with the rain still pooring hard , We were wet to the bones . we call it quick for the day and decided to have a nice dinner and try to save our energy for tomorow .

bellow is a picture my buddy took after we reached the camp base. It's Me trying to quickly fix the scope after banging the scope hard on the way back to camp.. just to give You an idea what kind of weather we were dealing with.!
