Thinking of getting up early on Sunday morning and heading to Washington County for a couple hours of hunting as the sun comes up. Just need to convince my brain that single digit temps aren't THAT cold.
Felt like today's trip was doomed from the start. Almost forgot my rifle...Sling somehow came apart and rifle fell in the snow after I walked back in to get it...went to start calling and found that I had left the mini amp on my homemade caller on so the battery was dead (of course had spare batteries for everything but that). But conditions were perfect. It was about 9 degrees when I got to SGL 245, no wind. I started calling with my hand call. To me it sounded more like a goose than a rabbit in distress. Called for awhile with no luck. Went and got a battery and mae a few more stands with no luck. I did see some tracks that I believe were coyote at my first spot. I didn't see them on the way in so maybe something did come to check out the wounded goose after all. Didn't see any yotes, but it was a great morning.
