June 21, Stuffed The Woodchuck skins that I brought from Park City & then started out with gun & traps.
Killed 6 Tamias quadrivittatus & 2 Spizella breweri & a Night Hawk.  Made up these skins & went out again in P.M. & got a pretty little Spermophile, somewhat like tereticaudus. Saw some more & lots of holes & tracks. Set a few traps so as to have a supply of game for Monday.  Saw a Coyote & a brown duck.

A warm day & not so windy.

Tamias are numerous, could have killed a lot more. The place promises well.

Took 2 Hesperomes & some Tamias out of the traps.
