June 24. Caught some Tamias & Hesperomes & 2 Ochetodons & shot a Dipodops & a Spermophile. Went to traps & hunted most of A.M. Did not find much because the wind blew & dust flew.
Started out again after putting up skins in P.M. but found a horse in the spring & spent all of the time left for hunting helping to get it out. Blistered & skinned my hands too.
A cat got in through a window & ate 2 Spermophile & 2 Tamias skins, spoiled my yesterdays work.
Wind blew hard nearly all day & the dust flew so we could not see across the block at times. Not very warm.
