Buddy shot this wolf yesterday, it was patrolling the fenceline along his cow pasture. It seemed kinda weird, the wolf didn't really pay much attention to him. He shot it at 140 yds with the open sight 30-30 truck gun. 99lb male. I guess I'm going to warm up my skinning knife tonight.

Been raining like the SE here so nice, lush rain forest here now. Our fall weather comes late out here, I notice you guys will be freezing up before us here out west, but spring comes later for us out here.


That wolf looks a little thin. Fox too loses their fear of man in the fall too for some reason.

That wolf looks to be atleast 60% domestic dog. Probably why it was not scared.

Any cranberries YukonJeff? I went down to the coast yesterday checked for moose and crans. Not much where I went and hard to pick so much leafs on the ground. I think the geese may have beat me to to the berries in the open areas. Not a very good berry year though that +30 we had at the end of June cooked the ground when they were starting i think. Got enough to survive the winter. As you Yukon men like to say.

Muskrat We have alot of cranberries this year, especially behind my beehives. They pollinate them in the early spring and make honey from the flowers. Sadly, no blueberries at all, and very few blackberries.

I will start loading up on the cranberries now, I already ate about ten bags of my salmon berries. I might starve smile

I got to get some bees. I don't even like honey but if they could pollinate the berries they be totally worth it. I like honey cooked on salmon.

The bear pic is back in a slough on south side of river? Looks like a griz. Did you consider shooting him/her?

Thats a slough on the north side.

We were just fishing, I got got chased out of the bushes at the last spot by a mad rutting bull moose and we moved down to this spot and fished for five minutes and here he came.

I have no use for a brown bear. I might shoot a fat black bear for meat if one presented himself like that one did.

Yes we have a very high population of Voles this year, they dug and ate a bunch of the potatoes, then I had birds that eat every snow pea I plant.

Hard to keep the vermin at bay here. I Iost the battle.

Ahh that's a good idea. Thanks, I will keep it in mind for next year,

Yea like that guy in that Canadian movie about wolves. lol

I am also getting terrorized at home by a big bull moose,it came up to the dogs last night at 2;00 am, dogs were going crazy,was not afraid. One is part wolf , I almost had to shoot it. He has a scrape right by my beehives and followed my trail down to the house. Its his second apearance. I expect he will be back. There was two and one got shot smaller 45z". This one is supposed to be 60" or better.

Bunnies are starting to change. I have them hanging around the yard every day lately.

I also had a lynx in the yard the other day at 3;30 on a sunny afternoon, doing the low belly crawl stalking to my chickens, I had to walk up to it and clap to break its trance and then it ran back into the alders. Was just a kitten, must of had mom in the bushes nearby. Should be a lot of cats here this winter. Wish prices were back too.

I saw this little lonely ptarmigan out in Minto Flats yesterday. It was on the bank and really stuck out. [Linked Image] Generally don't see them down there in the swamp.
