Elk Tracks in the Snow
Nothing wakes me up faster than finding fresh elk tracks in the snow. The senses come alive as I follow along. I am constantly scanning the woods, listening carefully and sniffing the air for any sign they are close. I have practiced moving silently and slowly so I don’t betray my own position. I know from experience that if I’m quiet they might be noisy. More than once I have been surprised by the mewing of the cows and calves walking toward me. My Timberline trailer from Colorado Backcountry Trailers allows me to root myself deep in elk territory. I know I will wake up to dry boots and retire to a comfortable place after a long day of hunting.
