She was looking right at me. She was sure that there was something there, but the wind was blowing from her to me, and I had much better camouflage, so she just couldn’t figure out what that something was. Eventually the Columbia Black-tailed deer forgot about me, and she and her yearling fawn continued to feed.
That was certainly one of the joys of being out in the forest during December. It was just me, and the deer (and the coyotes, and ducks, and geese, and beavers, and) well, you get the idea. No people!
So here is a little video from the last few days of sneaking around in the forest. The temperature was just about freezing, in fact I had a little snow today. No way did the snow interfere with my plans though, because I really didn’t have ANY plan. I just wanted to hang out on the woods, listen to the river, watch birds, follow some animal tracks, make a little bushcraft fire and brew up some tea.
As you can see from the video, mission accomplished.
That’s it for now, thanks for following along with the Adventure Journal.
