Another excellent day. Lecture/discussion on blood-trailing of wounded game, then spent the rest of the morning out in the woods practicing on simulated blood trails like those of actual wounded elk. Pretty realistic trails, and plenty challenging. Outright tough to follow at times, but I guess they're getting us ready for when we are actually tracking our hunters wounded game that needs to be recovered.
Busy day this afternoon. We covered knife sharpening, discussed field dressing, skinning and quartering game. The we caped sheep heads for practice; learning to turn the eyes, lips ears and nose. This way, when we help our hunter harvest an animal, we'll know how to properly care for their trophy.
