We got a dusting from that front this afternoon as well, but it quickly melted away from the ground still being warm from 70 yesterday.


I didn't think the oaks were going to show much color this year, but after the rain and brief snow they seemed to make an attempt as the sun tried to show up at quitting time.

Have had the wolves howling across the river for the last 24 hours. Due to a strange freezeup, the ice has jammed up above us and left us with an open channel that takes much longer to freeze. I can get across, it just requires about a 30 mile ride. Anyway, works was in the way today, but I had time to do some calling this afternoon. The “monster” came along to help but went looking for squirrels when they weren’t answering back. Never got them to come out onto the river across the channel. The far side of the open channel is 625 yards. The river is almost a mile wide heat this point.

Hahahahaha! Hardly. 😁

ol’ Mr. London actually had a pretty poor reputation during his time up here. Seen mostly as a free loader “hippie” type for that era. He‘d stay and mooch until folks kicked him out and sent him on down the trail where he’d rinse and repeat. However, I will say, reading Call Of The Wild and White Fang as a child were certainly catalysts for my ending up where I am.

Thats the thing.....

Those that can, Do.

Those that cant, write about it.

He did really speak of the rugged, self reliant, individual American in his work if not being one himself.

Tried to get my kids to read WF, CotW, Treasure Island, Johnny Tremain - didnt captuure them at all :(

I always thought Hatchet by Gary Paulsen was pretty good. My least disliked required reading in school.

Ah yeah, well I have figured out a little more about the buck. Turns out it wasn’t a cougar. The buck was gut shot and coyotes got to it. That almost pisses me off more then it being a cougar kill.
Edited my post after I read yours.

@Geno C.

What caliber is that?
Was thinking 338 Federal?


And some details on that rifle action?
Curious styling with 3 pos safety and a side bolt release.
@1J04 has it right.. almost. It is a 358win, I’m running 250gr soft points though 😝

It’s a Montana 1999 action. Barrel is a Douglas 1-10” and an accuracy innovation stock with the aluminum bedding block. 1-6 Gen2 razor I just picked up at vortex.

It shoots 1/2” 3 shot groups at 100yrds more often than not too!
