[Hunt Pt 2] CaribouEmer stood in front of the large stove with a large pot of bear stew for the three of them before they headed out for the day again. She had seen tracks on their way home that had been left by what looked to be a rather large herd of caribou. If she could get a couple of them she would have more pelts to sell as she had decided to keep the bear pelt for El Dorado and her's bed. It would help keep them warm on those cold stormy nights. El Dorado and Ashlivaran were outside taking a short walk. The smell of food had turned them around and was now heading back to the house. El Dorado loved Emer's bear stew and he was in a hurry to get back.
By the time he had gotten back with Ashlivaran Emer was placing their large bowls down by their bed before sitting down with her own beside El Dorado's place. "There you two are! Come on I made enough for everyone. After we eat we're going out for another hunt. I saw some caribou tracks when we were bringing the bear back." Sh
Deer hunt???The deer had lasted them for a few days but they had eaten the last of it the night before and now with his mate carrying pups, Kylo had to take the other three on another hunting trip. He left his mate in the capable paws of her brother while he took Sherwood, Altivo, and Aeluin with him for another hunt. They needed real food something bigger than a deer. If they could find one they would take down a bear. After bidding his mate goodbye and promising he would return son he left with the other three Tokotas down the hill and into the forest.
Whether they found a bear or deer first he would be sure to bring home enough to feed his mate. They knew where the deer had been last time as they began making their way down towards the small pond and clearing. Aeluin talked about the Kylo’s new pups and teased him about being all lovey-dovey with his mate before they left. For being such a strong silent male he certainly took his role as a mate and father very seriously. Sherwood and Alti
Desert hunt Pt 3The next morning Jafar awoke and stepped out of the tent. He had decided that they were going to move to another hunting spot. It wasn't as green and there wasn’t much water but there would still be enough for them and he remembered seeing some camels up there the last time. Brimstone was already awake and getting a drink from the cool water so Jafar woke the other two. Blake and Delta both yawned and went to get a morning drink with brimstone before walking back to camp as Jafar began taking down the tents. He packed what they had hunted in the wagon as well as the tents before hooking Delta up to it. He explained to them that they were going to a new hunting place and it wouldn’t take them too long to reach it.
Once everything was packed up Jafar climbed on top of Blake and began leading them to the new hunting post. Delta pulled the wagon while Brimstone followed behind them looking rather bored than anything else. He enjoyed the thrill of the hunt and he didn’t ge
To the waterfall!Neo yawned as the morning sun rose over the horizon. Getting to his feet and gave his pelt a shake before stretching. Stepping out of his den he looked around. There were a few prey items close by but he had a few scraps left over from the night before which would be plenty for the day. After eating his meal he stepped out of his den and sat down. It was a rather nice day out and there weren't any clouds in the sky. It looked like it was going to be a good day. Walking down the small trail which leads from his den he decided he wanted company for the day and as luck had it he had some friends who lived close by.
Making his way down towards a large cluster of rocks he stopped just for a moment to take a quick sip of water before continuing on his way. Neo smiled as he saw movement inside the rocks which formed a den in itself. Picking up the pace he let out a soft growl to alert his two friends of his presence. Just as he arrived two sabers stepped out of the den curiously to see
[Hunt pt 1] Bear huntEl Dorado stood just outside of the small cabin waiting for what his rider had told him would be their hunting companion for a little while. The golden vyron was also waiting for his rider to emerge from their home. He was told that their hunting partner was a beautiful Shadow colored vyron named Ashlivaran. Emer was packing what she needed inside and El Dorado was sent out to watch for their new visitor. It wasn’t long before El Dorado noticed someone coming up the road.
El Dorado was taken aback by the female. She was quite lovely perhaps he might make a new friend. Turning as he hears the door he sees his rider and friend Emer emerge from her part of the house which leads to his part which was an open area with two beds for him and any guests they may have. But he could freely move back and forth to her part as well as their were no walls blocking them. Most of the time Emer slept cuddled up with him though. Emer was just putting her coat on as she saw the female approach.
Gone fishing!Whisper sat waiting by the river for her friend to arrive. They had planned to go fishing today and Whisper had brought the net she had found a few weeks ago and had kinda figured out how to use it. It wasn’t long before Whisper could hear someone approaching from behind. Turning to see if it was Koen she was relieved to see that it was. Koen smiled as he moved over to where Whisper was waiting fr him. Noticing the net he smiled. That could either make this easier or they could get tangled in it and have a hard time escaping. Koen laughed to himself as he thought about it.
Whisper got up to greet her friend before they moved back over to where Whisper had left the net. Looking around for what might be a good fishing spot. Whisper carried the net in her maw while looking for large clusters of fish that they might be able to find when she realized something. Setting the net down Whisper looked up at koen and asked him to wait there before turning around to head back to her den. She
Emer and Scorch awoke the next morning to find Blizzard gone. He must have left as soon as the storm had subsided. Getting to her feet, Emer began gathering up their things and packing them into the sled. She smiled, pulling out a few fish to leave for Blizzard. Just in case he came back to the cave she wanted him to know how grateful she truly was to him. Scorch seemed to agree. They both knew if it hadn’t been for Blizzard they would both likely died in that storm. Emer was sure to leave a good meal for Blizzard before she hooked Scorch back up to the sled and left. “We shouldn’t be far from a village. If we hurry we should be there in a couple hours.” She said as Scorch continued running in the direction they needed to go. Emer just hopped the village wasn’t too damaged from the storm. She knew just as well as anyone how bad snow storms like that could be,
The clouds were almost cleared from the sky as they raced over the newly laid snow which had been left by the storm. Emer preyed that the next village wasn’t badly damaged but she was sure no matter what there would be some damages here and there. Scorch moved as quickly as he can while pulling the sled behind him. He hoped that his rider could take a night or two in a nice warm bed after the storm. He had never been more afraid of anything thaN, he had been afraid of losing her last night. The blizzard had nearly claimed her. If they hadn’t made it back who knew if she would have made it. He hated seeing her so cold and weakening more and more every minute they had been out in that storm had been a minute of her life. He swore to himself that he would do what he needed to do to keep her out of situations like that again.
They were about halfway there when they ran into an Elk herd which ran alongside them for a short time. Emer had even been able to reach out and stroke one of the cows before they split ways. Again Emer and Scorch moved across the snow as quickly as they could. The snow left by the storm was soft however which made it a little harder than she liked to travel. Scorch had to fly low to the ground in some cases just to get a little distance. They had to do what they had to do however if they were going to make it to the next town before it got dark. Emer wanted to inquire about a room for the night and a place for Scorch to rest for the night as well. She was so excited to sleep in a real bed that night or at least she hoped so. She didn’t know how badly the village would be damaged. Emer hopped that it wasn’t as bad as she thought it might be. They continued on, however, if the village was as damaged as she was afraid it was she knew that there could be people who might need help.
It was early evening when the village first came into sight. Emer frowned as they got closer. She could see the storm hit this place hard and she couldn’t see any movement which was fairly concerning. Her concern only grew as she got closer. She couldn’t see any movement at all. Coming to a stop she unhooked Scorch. “Look around. See if you can find anyone still alive. If you find anyone, dig them up and brings them by the sled.” She told Scorch who simply gave a nod and began searching the snow. Emer went to look around the small village. If there were any survivors they would need a place to keep them. After a few moments of looking around Emer found a house that wasn’t badly covered. It took her a moment to uncover the door but she was finally able to get inside. The house was empty but the house was still in good condition. Looking back she saw that Scorch was still looking and had pulled a couple bodies but and placed them by the wagon but from here Emer couldn’t tell if they were alive or not yet but now that she had gotten into the house they could at least start bringing in anyone who might be alive.
Going back Emer began dragging the bodies up towards the house. She would bring them inside and start a fire to warm the villagers up. Scorch continued searching for any signs of life. Any bodies he did find he placed on the ground beside the sled before going back to searching, using his claws to carefully dig through the snow. He hoped beyond hope that they would find someone who might still be alive but so far everyone he had found had been frozen. He sadly even found a frozen Tyto chick which brought pain to his heart. His mind flashed back to the night he had almost died that way. If Emer hadn’t found him he would have ended up the same as this poor chick. Carefully he picked the little one up and placed it beside the other bodies. He took a moment to mourn the poor chick. He wished they had been able to save all who perished in the storm last night but knew nature would claim what it wanted and when it was your time to go it was your time, no matter how new they were to the world. This was something Scorch knew. Taking one last look at the chick he sighed sadly before going back to digging. He was quick but careful, not wanting to injure anyone who might be alive as he moved snow. He still held out hope that they would find someone or something still alive in this place at least he hoped.
Once Emer had cleared a path to the house she went back to the sled to pull a shovel off her sled. She went to a different spot and began carefully pushing snow to the side. She could see Scorch had already found four people and one dead chick. Probably a holiday present for a child. She felt bad to the chick but she had to keep looking. Reaching into a hole Scorch pulled another still lifeless body up from the snow reviling a shivering raptor chick. It was almost frozen and shaking with both fear and the cold. Scorch chirped getting Emer's attention as she ran over. Reaching down she carefully pulled the little chick out of the hole and carried it to the house where t could get warm. She placed it on a couple of pillows and wrapped it in blankets before going back out to help scorch look some more. The chick would warm up quickly enough and Emer would feed it once they made sure there was no one else still alive. Emer hopped beyond hope though. Wanting and wishing she might find someone else who needed help.
