Today was brutal as far as weather goes. It started off with a downpour that lasted for about two hours before turning into a snowstorm for the rest of the day. After the wind picked up, it became all but impossible to stay dry. 

  During my outing, I found a spot where a big buck seems to be spending a lot of time. I will surely go back in there in the future. It’s an area I’ve never been too, but when I left, I was impressed with everything the area had to offer. 

  When I finally made my way out of the woods, it was a whiteout, and I was soaked to the bone with a little bit of daylight left. I figured the deer where sheltered by that time and probably waiting the storm out.  We ended up with four inches of snow for the day, and the wind is supposed to get up to 35 mph tomorrow, so I don’t think there will be much movement tomorrow either, but I’ve experienced different times when the woods came alive after a snowstorm. 

  Around 9 a.m. I heard a gunshot close to me. It actually startled me. A few minutes later, I could hear someone yelling. I figured the person had shot a dandy. However, later in the day, I learned that someone was lost and fired the shot as a locator. Then, the yelling began. The person got out of the woods safely. I’m still trying to figure out why the person couldn’t figure out how to get out of the woods from that position. All he had to do was walk down the mountain. The road was at the bottom of the mountain, and he wasn’t that far from the road. If he listened closely, he probably could’ve heard the snowplow.

  Tomorrow is a new day. We will see what it brings. I”m beginning to run out of time. There is only a week and a few days left to get it done. I’ve been getting closer, but the cooperation of the weather isn’t helping matters.
