On our way back to the truck we met an older gentleman and his wife on their UTV. It turned out that they liked to ride all of the old logging trails he use to use when he was a logger in his younger days. He also told us about a fishing spot way back on the trails near one of his last logging trips.
He went into great detail on how to get there using the trails, but as he kept explaining he started confusing himself and me. Gary however was able to get the correct directions from his or so we thought.
After our lunch we set out to go find this place that had a canoe and a couple of nice fishing holes. George and I let Gary take the lead because he was the one who understood the directions. We just kept riding and riding, but form what this gentleman had said we seemed to be on the right path.
Then just as we thought we were close there was a fork in the road where there shouldn’t have been and at that moment I started to have doubts about us ever finding this place. We kept trying this trail and that trail with no luck. We just kept ending up on dead ends or loops.
After about two hours of searching we decided to go back to the main trial and check out a few other trails off of it. However there was one small problem my ATV only had about a quarter tank of gas left in it. We devised a quick plan to split up so we could cover more ground.
I took a trail that ended at a camp site with no water even close. The trail George took must have been even shorter than mine because he showed up down at the camp site too. Gary showed up shortly after we made it back to the main trail having not found anything of promise. What a bummer we were on a wild goose chase.
One thing to note if I ever get the chance to go grouse hunting up in that area I won’t hesitate. We saw more grouse than I had ever seen in my life in one day. On top of that I saw one that was bigger than an NFL football, man he would have tasted good.
