Today was much colder than the first three days. We had a high of 9 degrees. By the end of the day we were all tired and hungry. They placed us in our spots at almost 9am. We all left our lunches in the truck since we normally got picked back up after an hour or two. This time we got picked up at 4pm. We started going into more difficult terrain to go hunting.
Since we all were going to be there for awhile we all got comfortable at our spots. Unfortunately, no one had any luck. We had cold feet even with multiple socks on and good boots.

So, this is probably the most memorable day of our trip. Usually, I gave Peter or whomever was driving the outfitters truck plenty of room to avoid an accident, especially since I could not see him through all the snow that was being kicked up behind him. Well…. we had not been on the road an hour and we were going to turn around and go back the way we came. And…. Peter got his trailer stuck in a snow drift. Now shit happens sometimes but we did not expect this to happen. All three of us busted up laughing. At first they had both guides trying to push the truck from the front…….yea…

Our attempts to help get the trailer unstuck.
After about an hour of trying we got back on the road. Peter our guide said it was “poor conditions” that got him stuck. So that kind of turned into our catch phrase for the rest of the trip when we did not want to take responsibility for something. (I still use that at home on my wife. But doesn’t have the same affect). For the rest of the trip we were thinking he would get stuck again.
The rest of the day was fairly in eventful. Jim (father in – law) said he could hear something in the tree line growling at him. But nothing ever came out.
Lots of signs but the wolves knew what was going on. They said they had pushed a couple of the wolves the week before for another group but no success. That may have been the problem, they may know not to leave the tree line.
