Thanks for sharing, those are great pics. What a nice family you have! Looks like everyone truly enjoyed the time at the cabin and on the trapline. Nice seeing all those smiles.

Thanks everyone for the kind words.

I got a call from a neighbor in there (before the new rules got posted by the governor) who also owns a mining claim up in the hills asking if I would haul some lumber up there. So with the weather holding I made a last run in with his lumber and a drum of gas for myself. Was a great time and hopefully can get back soon.

Always love seeing the mountains on the drive.

Felt pretty beat up from the last week of work so a long Sauna really hit the spot.

That Sauna sure makes a guy sleep like a log. Slept in a little but was rewarded with this sunrise over some hot coffee.

Beautiful day to head up to the mine.

On the way back got a couple snow chickens for supper.

Went for a little exploring ride. Found 16 moose in one valley. Here’s a big group.

Found this band of rams sunning themselves.

So this is why wear strips are a must on a machine. My spare machine I had brought in. Ice screws are through the tunnel and punctured the gas tank. Just another project to fix come summer.

Here's the side by side comparison of my 2009 Yamaha VK Pro and the 1991 Ski Doo Tundra. I had my kids out for a nice warm ride, Oldest doesn't quite have enough mass to make for good body English turns on the Tundra yet, but he's catching on.

So awesome to see that 91 Tundra still going strong! I'm so glad you are getting so much use out of it. It IS a great machine and it went to a good home!

Hopefully everyone is doing well, staying strong and out enjoying the start of Fall. Wife and I got the Grandparents To watch the fort,kids and dogs while we headed into the hills after sheep.Timed it perfect, weather was spectacular, even made it into some new unvisited country.

Well our commercial fishing season was more or less a bust, but we got a lot of work done on the cabin and had some fun! Caught a couple nice kings by rod and reel with my two year old, who loved the whole process but struggles to stand for pictures, haha. Also got a small bear for meat all summer. Had wolves, bears and moose in the yard again which makes me dream even more of when well be able to spend the winter trapping there in the next year or two. Most importantly this summer I argued with forest service, with Don Young and Sullivan's help, have made it so I can use my cabin much more then they initially allowed, including trapping. Hope everyone had a great summer. [Linked Image]

Interesting. Do you enjoy brown bear/grizzly meat Thurman? I've only had it once and I didn't care for it, but it was a coastal brown bear that was eating fish. I love black bear meat. Just wondering how grizzly compares.

Bushwhack Jack I think the key is to shoot a young one and in early spring when they first wake up. This way it tastes just like black bear, although Ive had black bear from the hills outside of Unalakleet that was fat on blue berries that might be the best meat Ive ever had.

Bear bacon is a family favorite!
