so this afternoon I decided to go still hunting instead of sitting in the stand like I normally do. I ventured into the woods following what ever deer sign I could see. after about an hour not really walking that far in the woods I decided it was time to head on back to the truck to make it before dark. I walked and walked in the direction which I thought lead out to the dirt road I left from, but the road was nowhere to be found. I started to panic a little thinking I should have reached the dirt road long ago eventually I came out to an old chopping and I though to myself oh $hlt where the hell am I. I walked around the edge looking for a road leading to the chopping but couldnt find anything. I seen a red flashing light in the sky like a radio tower or something and decide to head that direction eventually I found a dirt road by some miracle and let out a sigh of relief as I knew I wouldn't be sleeping in the woods over night. I have only started hunting this year and have learnt a few lessons on this hunting excursion. next time im gonna leave a note for the wife telling her where im hunting, gonna bring a lighter, and I might even get myself a gps or at least a compass. It still boggles my mind how I got so lost I was going the total wrong direction that I thought I was.
