Today was a day I’d like to forget. I put on way more miles that I would have liked, but I got caught up in what I was doing and before I knew it I had traveled much farther than I had planned on going.

The wind howled today, and it spit snow throughout the morning. The wind blew right through me and wouldn’t let up. I waited as long as I could, which wasn’t long, before I finally had enough and decided to sneak and peek.

I discovered a few fantastic places, and I will surely find myself in those areas later in the year. I found a few more fresh scrapes and rubs, but nothing that really stood out.

When I got home tonight, I realized that my gun wasn’t in my truck. The last thing I remembered this afternoon was leaning my gun against the tire. I must’ve driven away without putting it in the backseat. Panic-stricken, I headed back to where I had parked and figured the gun was probably gone. Amazingly, when I arrived, the gun was lying in the leaves right where I had been parked. I was ecstatic to see it. Hopefully, my luck turns the corner sometime soon. The deer don’t seem to be moving much yet. I’m having a hard time getting into it this year, especially with all of the leaf cover.

It’s going to be a slow week for me. I have a lot of things going on and probably won’t be able to get out more than a day or two.
