So I was finally able to connect on my first small game of the year on Sun. 5 weeks in a row of going out 6-8 hours one day a week. Only depressing part was he was beaded down about an inch off the trail 150 yards from the truck. It had been snowing all night Sat and still snowing Sun but we headed out anyway. Road about 15 miles first stop. On the second there he was just waiting for me. My buddy in the lead was actually nice enough to let me take him since he has been having good luck. I know half the people are gonna roust me for using a .22 but it was snowing like hell and we didn't have a dog to use. Stopped about 50 yards from him then snuck though the bush so I could flank him and not shoot straight down the trail. Anyway made me happy!
