Winter Hunt: Prey animals suffer from the deep snow and harsh cold the most; winter is a perfect opportunity to chase down weakened animals. Some Infernians organize a big game hunt to take advantage!

Cartier was one of many ambitions. There were a number of things he wished to excel at. There were a number of things that he wished to do to make those who raised him proud. So far he felt to be failing in every aspect. That simply meant he needed to step up and put forth more of an effort. He had to make his presence known around Inferni. He had to be one of those that everyone knew that they could count on. He had been trying his best lately in order to present himself in such a way.

Once more he was out to prove himself and his abilities. He wanted to show that he was capable of more. He was no longer a child and he needed to start showing that. He needed to contribute more to Inferni. The young male always felt that there was something more that he could be doing. So hearing of the planned event he immediately signed himself up to lead the hunting party. He had tried to do so a time before but he had been uncertain of himself. This time he had more confidence in his abilities.

Cartier had taken his time in stalking out a herd and where the snow would prove to be the deepest. He came prepared with a plan in mind. He waited in a spot between the Mansion and the Caverns and tilted his head back to send up a call for others to join him. He was still uncertain about leading, uncertain if he would be listened to by the older members, but he knew exactly what he had in mind to do. He would simply require the assistance of many others, as many as he could get. His plan was two fold and so he needed bodies to cover both aspects and locations.

While Kyrini was wandering around the mansion, she was sniffing the ground for any signs of prey. The only thing she could pick up was the scent of a coyote.

Kyrini sniffed some more, smelling a more unfamiliar coyote. Then she looked up.

Kyrini saw a dirty brown coyote with red ears and muzzle. She approached him, and said, "Hello there." Kyrini bowed and looked back at him. "What might you be doing in this cold weather?"

OOC: Amity's wearing her usual long coat, tank and skirt combo. Optime. || WC: 275

A call woke her from daydreams of warm food and adventure. She sat upright in her bed, staring at the drafty window that looked over nothing in particular. Just beyond its glass panes, the echoes of a male's barky howl ebbed away and she grew suddenly impatient. It had been in invitation- to do what? She had never been good at deciphering the meanings behind long-distance howls and yelps. Sometimes, it was obvious, but...

She thought about this as she fled downstairs and out the front doors, through the courtyard and into the forest, heading a familiar direction towards the caverns most of the four-legged members called home. She arrived panting, from excitement mostly. A male stood with only one other, paler, female in his company. He'd made the call, that much Amity knew immediately. Whatever for, she would only know by asking. The female was offered a short curtsy, then her eyes landed on the male.

"Heard you from the mansion. What's the deal, daddio?" She paused a moment after she spoke, second-guessing herself. Was that the right way to speak? This orange-eyed, russet-furred male was probably higher ranked, and thus deserved some more respect than that, right? "Erm, that is, can I help with anything?" Her mind raced with more doubts as she timidly backed up a few paces. Vendetta, days before, had tried to explain the routine to her, but suddenly, as she tried to recall if he'd advised her on clan protocol and her mind drew only a blank, moving brown jaws but no sound to match. She fussed with her jacket as she waited for an answer, or some order, or something.

Cartier frowned as there wasn't the rush of bodies that he had been hoping for. He began to worry that no one at all would end up showing up. But he ended up with one body at the very least. Going to hunt for the bonfire tonight. I have found a herd and could use some help in picking off enough for everyone to be able to eat. But with him and just one other it would be an impossible task to complete. It was disheartening that he couldn't rally a proper hunting group. How were the two of them meant to take down a moose?

But then another came along and she clearly was overdressed for what it was that was to happen. If you are up for a hunt then you can help. Though Cartier was starting to rethink his plan. Three was better than two but it still wasn't really enough. Maybe if he got his bow. But he wasn't certain of his accuracy with it to really want to attempt it but he just might have to. There is a bonfire tonight and enough food to feed the whole clan is needed. And now he was questioning just how he was going to make that come true.

He was beginning to give up when another body showed up. He was glad for the slowly growing numbers but it still didn't ease the concerns he had about the hunt. The female that had showed up was silent and had her face turned towards the ground. She kept herself separated from the group and it made Cartier wonder if she was actually going to participate or not.

Sparrow had waffled over whether or not to come. The voice was unmistakably masculine and that made her want to stay home. It was her drive to be useful that had finally drawn her out. Still that didn't make this easy for her. Luckily when she got there there was only one male but still the females that were gathered weren't ones that she was on familiar terms with. Sparrow stayed silent and tugged at her hair. She continued to fidget and looked almost ready to run at a moment's notice.

He was at least able to pair up even groups now at least but he wasn't certain if that really mattered or not. Did the groups really need to be even? He was having trouble deciding. He had his plan in mind but didn't have the logistics of it exactly figured out. He wasn't used to having to feed a large group. The bonfire was depending on them so he couldn't screw this up.

He was starting to get discouraged when another pair ended up joining them. A group of six Cartier felt certain that he could work with. Still he waited longer but this seemed all that he was going to get. Cartier cleared his throat and held up his hands to cease the chattering from the group, namely Sinech who was trying to strike up a conversation with the quiet Conrad.

Okay, this looks like all we are going to get so we better get started. There is a bonfire tonight and we need to feed everyone. I have already located our prey. There is a herd of moose in the forest. We are going to need to divide up into two groups. The first group will go into the forest and flush out the moose and guide them to the Moors where the snow is deep. The other group will be waiting in the Moors to kill the moose that get stuck in the snow. Does everyone understand? Cartier paused and looked around the group and gained an affirmation from Conrad when the other male nodded his head to indicate that he understood.

Everyone knows their own skills better than I do so pick which group you think you will do best in. Perhaps he should be splitting them up himself since it was possible they would all choose to be in one group and not the other. Still, Cartier wasn't certain of what everyone was capable of doing so he had to leave it up to them. He would just have to take his chances.
