I repeat this post once or twice a year

and its good. I love this. Working with some leftover moose at the moment . I cook this twice a month or so in the colder months. Works with moose ,snowshoe hare or ptarmigan. It is my favourite meal in the cold months. See Hanks page below.
If you love good food you have to try this. Cooking it now while waiting for the snow to start

I have been back to work a week and 1/2 now

Was supposed to be weekends only now.
I went moose hunting this weekend passed. It was blowing a gale so I couldn't get up the lake. The season has been opened a while now and there is a big cull on so I saw no moose or sign near the road. I don't have much of a chance with just weekend hunting.
I have a fair bit of leave accumulated so managed to wrangle another week off starting Friday. Going to give it an honest shot in the backcountry if the weather holds. Cool and clear here now. It is not hard to kill a moose here. The problem is for a solitary hunter that won't use a quad is to get a moose where he can manage it hence the freighter canoe or packframe. I also despise road hunting. When you are talking moose you don't want to use the pack frame once you are passed 50. A couple of weeks ago I could have killed them in my yard

Weekend hunting from here on in

Back to work tomorrow after 9 and a half weeks off. Today is the last day of the ptarmigan season in my area but for me it finished Thursday.
Today is a pretty nice day but I don't hunt on Sundays as that is a family day.

I will try the rifle the week to check that it has held zero and will now be out with a rifle every weekend until I get my moose or the season closes.

I hunt some big lakes by still hunting along the shore and also by spot and stalk. I glass morning and evening and on windy days I still hunt. I have to get my moose fairly near the shore so I can recover him by canoe or boat as I am a solitary hunter. Looking forward to it though and I truly appreciate the meat.

Shown above is an area I hunt moose.
Hate to leave the dogs home though!

time for birds is getting short

But am starting to look forward to moose hunting. Mid November is about the time to lay down the shot gun and pick up the rifle. Birds are getting white. Windy day today birds where wild. Getting edgy for the rifle. Looking forward to heading up the big ponds in the canoe. It will be nice to get into the woods where you can get a break from the wind
