I'm in an area I haven't explored much before. I was soaking wet. It was getting dark and I got a little turned around. I was going in the right direction but coming out in a lower spot. My phone died, and with it my map. It was pouring, getting dark, and misty from the rain and I thought it was a field. Took 2 steps and I was up to my waist.  Added some water to the inside of my boots but by then I didn't care. Walked around the swamp which was a pain (and painful) in the dark because it was thick and nasty, but I was worried the swamp might be deeper in the middle. A lot of trouble for a horn but I'm going back tomorrow to look for the other side.

You've gone from one extreme to the other, those little ones are harder to find.  :chuckle:

Yeah I was looking around an area some elk summer in and found that little guy about 10 minutes after parking the truck. My eyes were still fresh! Last time I can get out for awhile.

Found a little one last night, it's a year or 2 old, was laying in the mud on the side of a creek.

Gotta admit though that the OP cautioning everyone else and then posting a pic of an empty bed in the snow with the shed. Seems a bit hypocritical  ;)
Then a few posts later mention it was off the road with a leashed dog.  :chuckle:
