Pretty busy weekend for me smile I ran Friday and as I was headed in I passed that moose that the RR guys were suppose to retrieve. Well they didn't and the birds had that joker torn up. After a call to the troopers and F&G they said I could have it, just have to go get the permit tomorrow before I do anything. Saturday the trooper I spoke to the day before called and said that there was a moose up the highway that had been smacked a few times and was a safety hazard, would I be interested in getting it? Heck yeah! After I get the permits tomorrow I will be running bait this week smile

Been kinda slow, not much track but I did manage to pull this joker smile He was waving "HI" to me when I rolled up smile

For those that follow my journal you know I find a shed or two every once in awhile, and you also know that I am cursed at never finding a matching pair. Well I broke that today smile Walking down toward a slough I saw where a moose had cut my trail and there were spots of blood. There is a pretty good rub about 25 yds off my trail and his trail lead right to it. I kicked the snow and sure enough smile Might not be the biggest set of antlers but dang it, it is a matching pair smile

Be safe out there!

Cool deal John! I found this weird set a couple weeks ago, on the trail about 1/4 mile apart. First set I've found too. Not sure why the pic is downside up.

Got one moose out on the bait stations yesterday, started on the second and the dang chain slipped off on the chain saw. Before I could get it cleaned out and put back together it froze frown Headed back out on the morning to finish that up smile

Be safe out there!

bfisch- this year many of them will be gifts to people that I am thankful for and that were there for me during my struggle with cancer. The rest the wife will sell, she does pretty good and is one heck of a marketeer smile

Went out today and started pulling mink gear. At the very end of my line I pulled down onto a slough to grab 2 traps and cache the boxes. Went to leave and as I am cruising out I find this.....

You know I had to set it smile Now if I could only find one that Mr Otter made!
