Leafbare 20 - The cold persists, a biting breeze moves its way through trees and across meadows.
Hunting. It was a skill that almost every single cat in existence needed to know, especially those that lived in the forest. Clan cats were practically required to be able to hunt, for they had others to provide for and families to feed. It was something that could take forever to master and had many different techniques involved as well, many of which could be difficult to remember due to complexity. Hunting was a cat's natural instinct. For many cats it was considered fun.
When it wasn't so cold.
Leopardpaw almost found himself shivering any time he wasn't moving. The winds grew colder and colder every single day, making things harder. Granted, Treeclan had many trees that blocked out much more wind than what say Lightningclan would receive. But even trees and plants couldn't stop the cold breezes from entering the forest. In addition to the wind, the snow covering the ground made things worse, often times numbing the pawpads of any who stood on it too long. It was not the ideal setting for some hunting.
Yet here Leopardpaw was, out in the territory with Timberfrost, who he had asked for some help and tips from. Foolish? Yes. But worth it? Also yes.
The Apprentice attempted to keep his feet off the ground as much as possible as he walked, almost prancing towards the area he and Timberfrost planned to try and do some hunting at. The Wildflower Clearing was always one of the best hunting spots, regardless of season. Though, most of the plants and flowers that the clearing was known for were covered in snow, causing much of the prey to stop showing up there. Perhaps the two of them would get lucky and would stumble upon a rabbit out of its burrow or some birds. He could only hope that they would return to camp with prey rather than empty-pawed.
