 The cold weather continued today. I took it easy today, although I did go into the woods to be with my dad while he hunted. I decided to do some scouting during the day. 

  As I was wandering around, I was glad that I wasn’t sitting with my back against a tree. It was nice to wander around without a care in the world. When I cut some fresh tracks, I decided to practice tracking. I began following them and covered a lot of ground in a short time.Before long I was on the backside of the mountain where I started. I finally caught up to the buck on a flat along the edge of a swamp. He wasn’t bedded. Instead, he was milling around with a few does in the area. It was a nice 6-pointer, and it will be a great deer next year if it survives the winter.

  Dad continued seeing deer today. Unfortunately, he hasn’t spotted one he wants to shoot. It seems like he’s passing up at least one buck a day, no matter where he goes. I have a feeling it’s just a matter of time before he sees a good one.
