Back to work

After two months of solitary hunting, just me and the dogs, it seems strange to be back to work. Anyway I have been a week now back in the fakenphony world. I can look up though and still see the sun and stars and feel the weather. Thank God for weekends. I have two weeks put away for Christmas. It will be good to get in just to light a fire and boil the kettle. Snowshoe hares and maybe help a friend look for moose.

Seems this guy gets hunting right

Most videos and shows about hunting don't

Steaks,roasts, ground meat,sausages,hares stewing in cast iron pots,and birds roasting in the oven.
This year we can get by with very little if any store bought meat. All of it gotten while looking at beautiful country and seeing and feeling the weather (both good and bad) and the pleasure and the pain that is hunting. I feel lucky today to live where I do.

Just after daylight

Picture is not very good. Its a cheap cell phone picture. Forgot my camera. I have the quarters next to the lake after a full days work. Solitary moose hunting is for younger folk. Oh how I ache.Going to get him in the morning by boat. Hope the coyotes stay away
