I am spending so much time alone with my dogs

In the woods and barrens that I am getting spoiled. I may never be able to deal with bull crap again.I saw some beautiful moose today. I am soon going to leave the shotgun at home and take the rifle. I hate doing that to my dogs though. The pics above show the country that I will be hunting for moose come November

birds in the roaster. Local carrots, turnip in the pot

Not long home, Dogs tired, hunting 4 days straight , shotgun cleaned, another brace of birds chilling in the fridge, drinking a rum and coke. Another great day in the world that God made. I am working tomorrow then off for another 3 or 4 weeks. Got to appreciate these days.

I am appreciating this

There were times last year when I had doubts we would all make it especially the dogs.
We are appreciating this. When I was 17 I quit university to go bird hunting and a year or two later picked a career that would allow me to take the falls off. Now in my 50's I know life is just a flash. Had a great couple of days with the dogs. Living for the day

The first picture below is about 12 Kilos from my house, looking back at my community. The next is at roughly the same spot looking west. I don't normally post pics of dead birds but do now and then. They with hopefully, a moose, will get me through the winter. Some people email me and ask if there is any forest in Newfoundland so I have included a pic of the track up into the country. Lots of ruffed grouse there and you can see one in between the ptarmigan on the freezer.

It will soon be time to look for a moose

few pics

my legs hurt

I just took two birds out of the oven(ptarmigan) with a small pot of turnip and carrots. I am home about an hour. I had a day in with Sam my English yesterday and got a few birds but had a day today with Dunc my older Gordon which will help get me through the winter. He is an old dog at 12 but he gets it done without any flash. Today was one of the best days I ever had on the barrens. I walked a lot the past two days and climbed some big friggen rocks today with a 12 y/o dog that doesn't know the meaning of quit. I also saw one of the biggest bull moose that I have seen in a long time and am going to have a look see tomorrow with my rifle. A few pics maybe tomorrow.
Its an old cliché but life is good. And some people chase money
