Traces, traces, traces …

Sometimes you return home, not only without any booty, but with a clean gun, and your mood is very good. This may be the day after the powders dropped in time. It happens that you can’t even haul out the hare, but you’ll see all sorts of tracks.

For example, in one year, winter began in November. Snow fell, it froze. If you want to, you don’t want to, but those animals that do not hibernate in the winter had to immediately start “telling” about their life on clear, snowy “pages”. And they told a lot.
