He chose this place specifically because he knew that there would be a good selection of prey to choose from so he could get the materials he needed. After seeing a few wolves around with various types of armor and the like, Ulric decided he wanted to try his hand at making a piece himself. He imagined that he probably would not be very successful at it the first time since he didn’t know the first thing about making armor, but trial and error and all that. He at least could get past the point of hunting something that he could skin and get the materials so he could practice.

He happened to spot a pair of stray male mule deer that seemed to have moved into the grassy area of the prairie to graze. One of them had a moderately large set of antlers compared to the other and that was the one he had his sights on. Even if this trial run of armor wasn’t the one he ended up keeping and using, he still had an idea of how he might be able to use the antlers so that seemed like a worthy target. The other one would have been a bit easier to take down on his own, but he talked himself out of taking the easier route.

He was crouched down among a thicker patch of grass, letting his dappled fur act as camouflage while he watched them from a distance. He had been waiting for an opening and for the winds to shift so he could stay down wind. In the mean time he let his silvery gaze look around the prairie - ever so slightly hopeful that he might spot someone he could talk into helping him with his hunt.

He’d ventured eastward and south, though he was careful to give the Ashen packs a wide berth, even if he hoped he’d come across Lia and see what adventures – or spar clobberings – they could sniff out. Eventually, he slowed as he found fresh traces of deer, dropping into a stealthy, graceful prowl until he glanced up and spotted the two deer.

And who should he spot but his cousin Ulric, giving the deer a hard study? His tail waved in greeting, a careful motion of welcome as he shifted and slipped up beside the older man, grinning. Keeping his voice low, but not whispering – whispers carried further than low, soft speech – he tipped his head toward the deer asking, “Got one in mind?”

Attached to his armor were his two bags on each side, and one carried the tools he now almost always carried, for skinning, processing and stowing hides, meat and other pieces for travel.

Even though he had been hoping to possibly pull in another wolf to help with his hunt, he had been skeptical that he would actually get that lucky. To his surprise his cousin came into view with perfect timing to join in on the fun. He gave Cairo a pleased grin when the blue eyed male crept up along side him. It felt like ages since he had seen him last, but in reality it had been a couple seasons at most. So much had happened since then it was hard to believe it had all happened in such a short time. To think when they first met he had still been on the hunt to find Philomena...

All of that was pushed to the back of his mind when Cairo asked about which of the deer he was targeting. He looked back toward their prey and nodded, pointing with one of his forepaws toward the slightly larger buck that had the noticeably larger antlers. "That one... I have an idea for the antlers," he explained briefly in the same low, quiet tone. The deer still hadn't noticed them so it seemed like his good like was continuing. To emphasize this, the breeze began to change directions till it was blowing toward them and effectively keeping them down wind. Now was as good a chance as any if they were going to make a move.

"I'll sneak around to that side... If you could spook that one toward me, I'll stop it and hold it so you can come make the last blow," he added, quickly summarizing a plan for them to follow. With that in place he gave Cairo another small grin before slipping away, keeping low to the ground as he moved around to the right where he could easily be in the deer's path once Cairo guided him away from the other buck. He found a spot where he would be fully concealed and then proceeded to wait for his chance to act.
