|A very active deer trail|
Dad had been out doing some cutting and had found a rib cage (sorry that I forgot to take a photo of that!) but he was not sure if it was a coyote or a fawn. He also found a strip of hide.

We headed towards my tree seat to hop on some deer trails in search of sheds but also, to check out the improved shooting lanes that Dad cut for me. I have already been told that I will be spending a lot of time in my tree seat next fall, so Dad wanted to make sure that I would be able to see any deer within shooting range from where I sit. No more messing with large, thick evergreen coverings.

We continued to look for sheds but never found any. It was nice to be back in the woods though and nice to start thinking ahead to the fall and our hunting plan. There are so many deer around us that I hope this fall, at least two of us will fill our tags.
The fresh air, snow and plentiful deer sign made us all very happy to be back in the woods!
