That's it? How can I live vicariously through your life with only a few pictures? Got anymore?

ETA: I stated this post before you had the rest of the pics up. That's much better now.

It's a trappers cabin built in the 20's. I shacked up in a few nights. It has held up really well. I don't think anyone has stayed in it or even seen it in about 50 years. It was full of old traps and snares

It was unintentional. He was attempting to aquabump the Mossberg and they were unwitting collateral damage.

I...wow...I'm sure it takes a lot of time and effort to keep a client satisfied and make a hunt turn out right, but damn, that is a job i wish i had...

Go in the fall......I did the winters for 18 years. There is a price to be paid for summer and fall....it is called....."the long dark winter"....better yet, spend the winter and spring in Hawaii and the summer and fall in Alaska...Alaska is the most beautiful place in the world.
