Talking stuck in the snow

I was in Damon Mi, for black powder season and decided to take an un plowed rd on my way back in from the morning hunt. Made it about 3/4 of the way up the 2nd hill and literally felt is down on to the frame. so i stoped and started digging. it took me anout an hour n a half but i got out. Going into it i knew when i said 1 last try it was not going to be good but i had to try.

Ouch, glad you made it out-you were just North of my house (recognize the spot in pics) If you ever need to, PM me and I'll be happy to help you out with a winching. My boys and I hunt that area for varmints and coyotes. Glad to see I'm not the only one wheeling out there in the winter! Nice truck, too.

If you are on the path I believe you are, thats somewhat deep sand underneath too. I usually make a trip through that area once a year. I was surprised you even mentioned Damon. Most people respond with a "Where?" when you say it.

Thanks for sharing.

And the pics look like the sun was starting to set. That could have been bad. OP should at least get a come along, or something cheap that would give you a chance.
