Shed Hunting

Was debating whether to enter this as an official workout, but decided to go ahead and do so. I hiked around in the woods out back looking for deer/moose antler sheds. I also tried turkey calling to see if any gobblers were around. No luck on either count, but fun to bushwack around in the woods.

What impeded both objectives was a good 2-3 feet of soft snow in many spots. Around the bogs it was bare ground, but on open areas with northern exposure, I'd sink past my knees in soft snow. That made it a good light workout. It helped loosen up the soleus muscles, which have been tight. Looking forward to a run tomorrow... Tuesday will definitely be a rest day... open water season begins and I plan on fly fishing the entire afternoon/evening until dark.

Hiked ~1.5 miles.
Trails, woods... bare ground to 2-3 feet of snow.
Slightly hilly.
Mid 30s, overcast.
Columbia hiking boots, warm-up pants, Gore-Tex jacket, long sleeved shirt, short sleeved shirt, gloves, cap.
