I'm sure that she meant " (1) 40 pound wolverine".


It's a begger saying brackets, especially with frozen lips.

If the wolverine weighs 140 lbs, ol' Sue probably tips the scales at roughly 750 to 800 pounds....!



The shadow of her backside weighs 100 pounds............


I have nothing clever to put here.

the Biggest wolverine you’ll find will be the ones following polar bears. Oversized from cleaning up seal kills and dead whales.

I will share a good conversation I had this morning.
Took in a nice male wolverine for sealing. The battle-scarred one I posted last week. The local furbearer bio and I were chatting, and a desk gal pops into the sealing room. Wants to see the wolverine, as she has never actually seen one, in person. She is very impressed with the coloration, and asks good questions, which I answer. She then wants to see the claws.
I show her a taxidermy-prepared paw, and push out the claws, on all their glory.
She says, "wow! I thought they would be bigger!".
The bio and I exchanged a knowing glance, and I said, to the bio, "Probably would have made 50 pounds, if he got a bite out of me".
He chuckled, and she left.

No. If she thought those razors were small, I figured I would save myself the humility!

I wonder how long Andy's new girl friend will hang around.


I wonder the same thing. She gets put to work like a slave.

Saw Andy teaching her how to fish with a net last night. He's working her like a rented mule....!

How does she get her meals? She misses everything she shoots at, never seen her catch a fish. Last night she took a standing shot at a wolf on the move.

Yeah that was ridiculous. Standing ,offhand, saying 'what a long tough shot it was'. Well, then lean up and brace against the frappin' argo! And if the shot was that far and hard, then she shouldn't have pulled the trigger.

And I caught the 140 pound wolverine line a few weeks ago too. C'mon. I'm no expert, but I'm not stupid either. She just sounds dumb. No need to make up BS.

I need to go look for new episodes. I'd seen the old ones so many times I had them memorized.
Would love to get up there for the sockeye run, but probly won't spend the 3-4 thousand dollars to do it.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???
