Still no catches, wolves and coyotes are running the trails though....course they're trails I don't want to make sets on for fear of catching a domestic. Bit of cold weather philosiphising.



PS
The most honest way to say it would have been "I get fatter in the winter." Sometimes I forget that I'm not that svelt college freshman anymore.

Awesome! I always look forward to seeing your videos.
Does the white winter coat of the ermine coincide with ice out and breakup?

Thanks Jon!

Most critters that change color I think the change is triggered by decreasing sunlight in the fall and increasing light in the spring. I've seen late winters with white ptarmigan against brown bare tundra. Made for easy hunting!

I guess the same goes with the snowshoe hare.

Put a "governor" on the Tundra so the kid could drive, then I made him work for it!

Trapline has been dismal. Managed to stick the machine good in a hole, didn't have the rope along or it would have been a 15 minute job to yard it out. Thank goodness I had the jack! Took an hour to move front this way, the back that way, until I could drive out. If I didn't have the jack not sure I'd have been able to get out.

Ermine didn't get the last laugh though, little weasel.

Kid's been having a blast on the Tundra. He earns it.

And after he's split and stacked all the wood it's time for me to have a beer! Need to get more firewood.

They both pack firewood.


Be safe out there!

So much energy to harness there. Probably about as easy as operating a nuclear reactor. :lol:

He's on wheels that's for sure. Defiant little stink too when he's being contrary.
