The boy and I went out yesterday and crossed a zillion fresh bunny tracks along with fox and wolf. We put on over 2 miles, got plenty of snow down our necks, and ended up with a fluff ball bunny. I packed my winchester model 9410 (.410 ga) w/ 6 shot and it went down immediately. It was a great outing. Didn't see any spruce grouse, though I found lots of droppings on top of fresh snow, so I know their around, somewhere. I'll probably head out again tomorrow and get more snow down my neck. Anyway happy new years to everyone!
