Coming around

I took sick Boxing day,the day after Christmas but  I am coming around..I have been in the woods a few days the past week or so on skis. It has been a cold hard winter. January and February were hard enough without being sick. Snow, cold and wind with lots of power outages.Lord, we have never seen so much wind.

 Spring brings hope.Still lots of snow here but it is going. Temps are creeping up. Hopes in sight. Life is not much without the little flutter of hope. Anyway hope to get in country a bit more the next few weeks with the strengthening sun. I have quite a bit of work to do to get into "woods walking shape"

Walking the hills last April. I like to walk the country to keep in shape for hunting. Have a lot of work to do this year


  1. I hadn't realized you had been so sick. Good luck on getting back into shape-- I struggle with that too,as you may know!

  2. Sorry you have not been well - but glad to hear you are on the mend. Thanks for the photos - looks like a wonderful lunch spot. I have not carried a pot and stove on day outings for years - but it looks like a good idea. It would certainly slow things down - sitting and making a cup of hot coffee. Is that a new moose rifle?

  3. It has been abnormally windy down in these parts, too. I'm glad you're on the mend and out and about. It does one's spirits so good to feel the nearness of spring. All best - e

  4. Thanks folks, No that is not a hunting rifle, its a plinking rifle. VZ58 in 223 Remington. I don't shoot predators or varmints so it strictly for fun and targets. I use a Winchester model 70 in 30-06 for moose. I also have one in 375 Hand H magnum but have not used it for moose yet.

    I often go into the woods or barrens just to boil the kettle and to get away for a few hours.

  5. I do hope you are feeling better soon. I always love your pictures. They just make me yearn to be out in the field with my shotgun again.
