Camping as a family this week. We head out in the morning after I go to a funeral on the rez.
She loves camping in the summer which I've never been a fan of. So I was shocked when she said let's go camping this weekend. Keep in mind it's been in the 20's -30's the past few weeks.

Might do some stream and or lake fishing. Only thing in season for me is yote, and lions.
Tried to convince her to camp where my hunt is so I can scout but nope because no stream nearby. There are several in the unit but high theft area is not an option

Thanks everyone smile
Yamacat, Sounds fun.
We've been hesitant to go since I've been sick. But last night she said let's go. I hope I can last long enough to get enough firewood.

Love Fall winter camping, lot's less people to deal with and they are a better class of outdoors folk.

Thanks everyone it was a blast. Pics to come later. It was much needed. Snowy I took them a few knives couple guns some fishing gear and some traps for yotes unfortunately we landed up camping in a state park and barely got a spot, as all other sites in the area were closed cry so no hunting or trapping. Tons of squirrels at camp.

First night had several yotes at camp as soon as I started falling asleep. We heard them make a kill nearby. Made me sad because I wasn't able to lay steel down.

Yesterday after breakfast we went to lake up the road and my youngest caught his first fish (trout). It was a tiny guy about 11" we released it but it didn't make it. So we strung it and he was pumped. He was the only one to catch something in the coulpe hrs we fished. Noah was so excited to eat fresh fish.

We went back to camp for lunch and I took my other son to the shallow and nartow stream to see if we could catch some trout. No dice but did see several deer tracks about 2-3 days old.

At dinner I cooked up Noah's little trout and it was enough for a few bites, which he loved.

We broke camp this morning and came back. It was much needed for all of us. Even the kids and wiFe had a great time. The kids said it was better than a cruise or a hotel room smile.

You sure got that right Jerry.
It sure was Hrdtoflw. Sure is. It once was more beautiful but a forest fire 15 years ago wiped out a lot
