Birds: 4, Rory: 0

Hike 18/52. Took the guys out on another steep and empty hike. Obi did flush one bird that flew down 1000 feet in elevation to the trees. I did not want to hike down to tree line and back up. He did his job, I did not.

Another beautiful hike. In fact 16/52 that I am trying to get to. It is nice that I need to gain elevation to get to these ptarmigan. It forces me to find difficult hikes.Screen Shot 2017-10-05 at 8.23.05 AM.pngThis time I headed up Buffalo Mine Road. There are lots of ATV trails and it would have been nice to have one at some points. When I am sweating and tired I wish for an ATV. Then I remember how much healthier it is to be out there sweating and doing things under your own power.Screen Shot 2017-10-05 at 8.28.40 AM.pngWe saw some squirrels and many birds that we were not targeting. The colors of the plants and trees are starting to change and it was a beautiful walk in the woods with the dogs and my bow in my hand.Screen Shot 2017-10-05 at 8.28.54 AM.pngI also don’t spend much time in “the Valley” as it can have a bit of a bad reputation for being a rough area.

Bow Hunting for Rabbits.

Went out looking for rabbits when we still had snow on the ground. Had to switch from field points to bludgeoners.Screen Shot 2017-05-13 at 4.44.38 PM.png

Saw a Golden Eagle on ice on the way there. Took a cool (haha) picture with my phone through the binoculars.Screen Shot 2017-05-13 at 4.45.19 PM.png

We had a good time sitting in the woods without seeing any rabbits. Only saw some moose. Not a disappointment.Screen Shot 2017-05-13 at 4.45.54 PM.pngScreen Shot 2017-05-13 at 4.45.28 PM.png
