Isaac and I started Saturday morning by driving Chuwels Mtn. Road. The road is only plowed up to the campsite so we walked around the campsite area. After this we walked up the snow covered road for around a km or so. Birds were slow and the weather changed from blizzard to blue sky, and then back to blizzard again. After this we tried to bird the Lac le Jeune area but there was driving snow and heavy wind. The snow was flying straight sideways at some points. Because of this, we turned north and birded Goose Lake Road from Lac le Jeune road to Long Lake Road on the way home.
During the morning, we were able to set out 4 camera traps which will be checked in several weeks. Two of the cameras were set up by recent deer and moose kills so hopefully they will produce some good footage.
