Andy reporting: Hunting elk, day 3, round 1

Good morning!

Another quite long walk to my station, and, this time, in the dark. But now, when there is a bit more daylight, it looks good here.

About 30 minutes in, I had a couple of roe deers come out for a quick snack. But, we are not hunting roe deer right now, so I just enjoyed watching them eat.  We’re looking for bigger deers and elks.

Another really good thing was that our puppy (almost 6 months old) got to ”meet” a killed animal for the first time, and it went really well. He was interested, I played with it and got some taste of it to. Which is all very good. So, he may yet prove to be a good dog for hunting.

Unfortunately, in order for me to put Max on the elk’s track, I was forced to wade through a large ditch. So, I got really wet. Let’s hope everything dries overnight.

We’ve had our dinner and are now off to bed.

After some goulash for lunch, we are back at it again. I got the short straw again and got the most distant location. Just a quarter of a mile, but up a quite steep hill. However, I found about 1 liter of chanterelles. Let’s see how the hunting will work out.
