The last number of week-back-out ground hunting was full of snow, bogs, rain, hail, a wee bit of sun, wind but most importantly no rabbit sign! So things are still looking good on the rabbit front, with no rabbits caught and no fresh rabbit sign seen since late November, but the team are still as diligent as ever at searching for them. I was based in the north block the past month so I had the luxury of coming home to a hot shower and lovely cooked meal every night. This next month I will be hunting in the next block south, staying out at Brothers Point and Bauer Bay huts, so there is plenty of rock stacks to explore, escarpment to scale, plateau to plod and coast line to investigate in the ever continuing search for the last of the Macquarie Island rabbits.
Total kilometres walked for the month was approximately 2800km.
