Hunting is slow this year. Couple hard winters have hammered the deer population. I've got a couple weeks left to get an elk so I better get going. Did a run on snowmobile on trapline this week and lynx sign is decent but not a lot of other fur moving around. They shot my wolf pack out of choppers two years running now and I've yet to see a wolf track this year. Trying to save caribou so I won't complain too much.

Interesting how lynx have trouble passing by these upright small stumps without stopping. These aren't toilets as there is no urine spray visible, nor has the lynx backed into them. But they do rub their faces on these stumps leaving scent behind as a calling card.

So does that hit the rakers on the same stroke as the teeth?

I have one of those chainsaw blade sharpeners and love it . Yes it does the rakers at the same time.

I just spent three days putting up wood at the cabin. I'm even more impressed with this sharpener. If you give the chain a few swipes at the end of the day it stays sharp.

Thanks for the pics Brian. Love that jet boat of yours. Good luck and be safe this winter. I'm gonna have to get one of those sharpeners. I'm one of the worst saw sharpeners there is. I once sharpened a saw so bad, I started into a 20" log and came back out the top 10 inches from where I started without going through the log.

AK - The jet boat sure allows you to access some wild country. I'm looking at a 20' Outlaw right now to add to the fleet. I'm needing a bigger boat for longer trips, but keeping the Firefish for hunting and play.

Sheep hunting is done for another year. I didn't make it out this year but a friend took this beautiful Ram last week of the season.

What the commercial guys do is every time the saw is out of gas they pass the file across the teeth two times, by the time they finish the muffler has cooled and the risk of ignition of spilt gas is lowered.

nice curl

Do you get many lynx with white toes?

Iím looking forward to get back into the more remote corners of the line. We have a week of deep cold ahead so that helps. Getting a few lynx , the white toes are not that uncommon. Iíd prefer white bellies! [Linked Image]
Snares under the heavy spruce canopy keep working in deep snows.

Great pictures thanks for sharing with us lynx are a bucket list animal of mine and I always enjoy looking at sheep .
We're still close to single digits for temps for a few days with snow flurries.

Cold weather gave me a chance to make some more snares. [Linked Image]
I hate it when snares get tangled up so I cut circles of parchment paper to stack in between every couple snares. Dipped in white formula one.

Your lynx are stretched way to wide you get money for length not width, the one piece forming boards are better but those are good to just go one nail hole less and get a longer pelt. Remember they are forming boards not stretchers.

Thanks 411, I forgive you but I was stretching lynx when your daddy was in diapers. Remember...You Aklavik guys are all about muskrats so don't forget your place.

I just returned from a week on the trapline and was joined by some old buddies. Conditions were perfect and the lynx were really moving around. I had put up a snare one night and by chance ran it the next morning. Good thing I did as the overflow had risen during the night and covered up a freshly caught lynx. It takes a lot of hot water to extricate a cat from the ice without pulling hairs.

My wife was much happier with the dry version

Most of the lynx are mature adults and I'm seeing little sign of juveniles. Better get them while I can. I'm also catching more in trail sets than cubbies.

But I'll take them however they want to come.
