Highways of deer tracks ran through the woods and crossed a stream in two distinct spots. Staci and I followed different trails looking for bedding areas and any sheds that may be poking out of the snow. As we headed deeper into the woods, the snow started falling harder. But we pressed on.
We made a large circle into the woods and jumped three deer. I could see the bodies of two of them and the tail of another. They headed deeper into the woods and we continued following tracks and finding bedding area after bedding area. No sheds though.
It was fun to walk along a new piece of land that we were both familiar with but in a different context.
When we got back to the car, we were walking snowmen. The property owner laughed when she saw us. She also had a surprise for us...
