Another couple of days stolen in the bush

The weather looking half decent I Parked the pup up in isolation and ripped off into the bush with the mission of chasing some Chamois.  Most of the day was spent in a howling easterly at 1500 meters with the cold penetrating the very marrow of my being.  Glassing is a very big part of this game and when you are too cold to do this justice, then plan B must come into being.  So dropping down a few hundred meters saw me hunting some scrub country just on the bush line,  Three red deer was the result.  I took the bambi and yearling, leaving the most likely to survive the winter and Spring to get on with just that.  Pregnant too I hope.  The less the numbers huddled together in this environment the healthier your survival rate.
