Out looking for meat again tomorrow

Saw two moose and a coyote last time out while glassing. 50MPH winds here today and mild. Fair bit of sign around. The coyotes are thick this year. So are the hares. I guess that's related

Most of my pics this week are blurry as can be seen here. Don't know whats up with the camera. Those pictures are from earlier in the week. Boxing day I think. I have next week off for moose hunting but the weather is looking iffy. I have a bull only licence and can't get into the remote areas now. Snow is not the problem ice is. Many of the bulls now have dropped the racks now as well. I don;t care about racks but it makes identifying a bull more problematic. I should have spent more time chasing moose in November but with me the dogs come first. Sure could use the meat though. Will keep plugging away until the end of January. I can also take a calf but I am not keen on that

Two posts of a few pics below.

All were taken roughly two weeks ago. We had some snow and a then a thaw with wet mild weather. Its frost again here. Access to the backcountry by canoe is gone for the winter now. I have two weeks more leave coming. I worked a great deal of OT last winter and am taking it as time off. After Christmas day I am going to spend two more weeks in the woods hopefully

Sometimes even in the woods things go wrong

The world is far from perfect, even in the woods. I lost my first big game animal last week. I did the best I could and still lost it. Its bothering me a great deal. In bed at night I play everything over and over in my mind. I may be a long time before I shoot at another moose. I always felt for the animal at the kill but I really appreciated the meat. If you like and respect animals though, to hit one and lose it leaves an awful sensation in the pit of the stomach. Probably finished with the blog for a while as well
