Seems like forever,but Im almost ready to start my snare line again . Got lots of snare and extensions ready,most are left over from last years dismal performance. Welded up another 2 dozen stakes today and built 6 new style supports.
Also called in and took my first dog of the year to see if they are ready ,I would say he is 90% there , havent talked with my new skinner to see how blue or white he is .67d592c7bff5e8086808ed960c7b3b8e.jpg

A man can sure use the long-range calibers there.  And, off we go!

No doubt Glen, shot was fairly close tho..100 yds .We had sat for 20 mins and had deer watching our direction but when their heads turned to the right i knew we had a contestant and there he was ..Rifle deer season starts here on Wednesday so i will shoot those I see and claim as many as i can before those hunters get em wild .
I may set a few snares on private property where there is limited access ,but for the most part snaring is 3 weeks off .
Hopefully i can get some prebait out about November 25.

Thanx Rick , you just keep the west wind from being a hurricane and give me some snow .
Gonna be different this year as my son has decided to not run a line .He wont be coming with me as much because of his fear of the disease factor, he will continue to call and shoot but the upclose snaring aspect doesnt appeal to him and i respect that ...but its gonna be lonely .

Weaning and preg checking has coincided with our rut and 2 week long gun season ever since I can remember. We have a big bunch of tight neighbors and it usually takes every bit of 30-40 days to get everyone done. Day workers often want to barter days working cattle for days hunting deer. Sometimes they do both at the same time. Gets kinda comical. One of them sent me these memes.cc374e6aa5ef8a3723c47db443296deb.jpgcca3514d77e69801c5e1335cd16417ce.jpg

Good work on that one Cam. You can check the fur and his sewing ability too. I’m ready to read of your exploits again this year. Hopefully you’ll need a longer fence.

Never kick a dead coyote, especially one that ain't dead when your gun is still in the kitchen. Just ask your favorite Yooper what will happen. But if its a bobcat in a 330 coni and you think he's dead,,,,,Think again.. And we know you were wearing less than your PJ's on the last one you shot !

                                                       

                                                         

20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please God, don't take Kevin Bacon !

 

If you want to be successful, Be like a postage stamp, Stick to it until you get there

 

 

RIP Chris Miller
