Well, my man-date to take out a new hunter fell through, but it was just too nice of a day to stay inside. Plus, I had my heart set on getting out to see if I couldn't kick up a snowshoe hare. We have a 6 day season this year instead of our normal 3 day (which I always miss due to family holiday stuff). So I grabbed my 20 guage and put the dog's orange vest on him and off we went. We got a little over 4" of snow yesterday, so the walk in was gorgeous! We saw a BUNCH of coyote tracks. There must have been 8 or 9 different animals in this group. Biggest bunch I've ever seen. They were covered over by the snow showers from this morning, but they looked to have been made over night. We checked out one of the many spruce swamps in the area. I've seen sign of hares here before, but you have to work to find them. It's a bit thick. The hard part was staying dry with all this heavy, wet snow on the foliage.
