Hunting

ATV's, the trend for long range shooting, high tech gear. Whats next drones for scouting? This stuff is not hunting, its war on wildlife. The animals and country deserve more respect. What happened to woodsmanship?
I posted this video before, here is the full video by Clay Hayes


There is no hunting without uncertainty.

Dogs getting a well deserved rest

I am laying down the shotgun and picking up the rifle. Time for moose hunting. Backcountry solitary moose hunting is tough work but the rewards are great. As I posted here before  before though the problem is not getting one but getting one where you can get him out. I use a canoe or boat to get them out. I hate road hunting and atv's. It usually takes a couple of days for me to get my animal out.


The bull pictured is one I shot a quite a few years ago miles from the nearest road.
I have an either sex licence but will not shoot a cow with a calf. 
We have a long moose season here it runs from the First Saturday of October to the last Sunday in January.  
I love moose beautiful animals to me and they are big part of my life. Like seeing them all year long. I was pretty close to a couple last week bird hunting

Moose hunting here soon


Access by boat and canoe. Lots of sign and I have seen a few bird hunting

Sam

Poor old Sam is getting old. He is 12 now and still going hard all day. Probably last year for hard hunting. I remember when a fall seemed to last forever now the 12-14 years of a bird dogs life seems as quick as the passing of a cloud. I have been bird hunting every day the weather permits , havent picked up the rifle yet. For Sam. Going to have another week bird hunting then going to look for a moose. Fair bit a sign around and after seeing a few moose. I NEED the meat so going to go at it soon
