Though I didn’t find it, thanks to my friend Dan, we were in the exact location of it more than 5 days before the hunt was over. We probably even stepped over it a couple times. But trying to find a clear plastic medallion in 2 feet of snow is not the easiest thing, as two thousand or so people found out on Thursday at midnight. It was like an orderly moshpit full of friendly Minnesotan folks.
There’s even a documentary being made on this hunt that was due out this year in theaters, but now may be postponed until after next year’s hunt.
