taking in the traps--and one last mouse!

Today we took in the traps--whew! That meant up and down the hills several times, then we spent an hour building habitat piles. Our traps were productive--here I am holding a mouse, and the video shows the process of carefully removing a vole from the trap. After lunch Chris taught us some survival skills. He told us to remember "PLAN": Protection, Location, Acquisition and Navigation. That is what you need to consider if you get lost or stranded (of course if you have a cell phone, and you can get a signal, you'll probably be fine).
