2 in 330s, 1 shot, and 5 in 220s. That 220 is becoming my favourite trap

5 in the 220ís impressive I would have thought a Wolverine would destroy one of them

Imagine those 220's are Fur Institute of Canada certified humane ones here in Canada. Mean traps.

Went out flying today. Checked out a bunch of collared wolf and caribou activity. Awesome stuff. Lots of caribou but hard to get at them on the ground in a weekend. If I was going to travel that far Iíd want a tent, stove and a bunch of wolf/wolverine/Martin gear.

Ryan thanks for the ride along that truly is a slice of heaven where you call home !

That had to be a huge time saver flying for the wolves and caribou , how is the moose population doing this winter ?

That caribou sign looks awful familiar and good. Used to be like that here back in the day. Some people here won't give the deer/caribou a break though. Don't have to kill that many when they down to keep them down. Gonna be a long time before we see that again if ever.

Woke up both morning this weekend to tracks around outside the cabin.
Wolf gave us a chance on Sunday morning. Great weekend hunt for caribou in my favourite location.

Skinned for making mitts so it didnít take long at all. Nice when you donít have to split lips, do ears, etc. Using fur for the most practical purpose

Good lights on the way up on Friday.

There wasnít much left at the site after we loaded. This hunt was for elders so we took almost every edible piece as they prefer the little goodies (organs and guts) more than anything. We took all the shin bones for making grease. Iím sure some wolf or wolverine has checked it though. Even the part of the stomach that you would cut through to remove the guts is edible. Check it out next time and you will see lots of good fat in between the layers of that membrane. Good wolf country up that way for sure. They run the place

Thanks Ryan for the moose update I'm certain they and the caribou don't mind when you remove a few wolves from the land scape .
Fresh caribou sounds real good I'm sure the elders enjoy every bit !

Thank you for the ride along , story and great pictures !

Fiona left to Vancouver for a week for an artist conference. She cooked a big steak dinner the night before she left and I re heated left overs on the wood stove at the tent yesterday. 5 star dining

The steak was good but it doesnít compare to the caribou tongue we just ate. Best food. Ribs, potatoes and corn on the cob is almost done too. We donít do take out around here when fionas out of town.
