We dressed very warmly today and went out once again. We saw nothing of interest but a poacher and lots of fresh tracks. The poacher was sitting in a truck with a rifle handy and high-beam lights illuminating “our” opening in the forest.
- Vehicles are not permitted in that place except to retrieve a kill by the most direct route…
- Searching for deer is not allowed from a vehicle at any time, and
- hunting earlier than half an hour before sunrise is not allowed.
We might still go out one more time but it’s not looking good. Apparently the deer retreated from the storm into the forest but have now returned to the edges just outside our reach now that better weather has returned.
