    Great video for this post. One of the few, balanced, videos for conservation efforts I have ever seen.

    Did you get anything or was it too hot? The warm temps make it difficult to keep meat from spoiling before you get it to refrigeration.

    No, actually we didn’t. Turned out we pulled a tough area, very little terrain so there was quite a bit of watching animals running off in the distance. Good to get out regardless though . . .
