We decided it was time to close up for the year, 27 degrees in the morning and snow on the way home made us feel we made the right decision. Joe and Carlee came down for some hunting and berry picking. We got into a bunch of grouse and hares and Joe was able to connect on a few. The potato experiment was somewhat successful, we ended up with more than we put in the ground and have a better idea for next year. Lots of animals seen while down, many looked like they were heading south.
