he wasnt sure what he hit. they were back by what we call the old dump road.

it was still closed when i went through on tuesday but could tell it was close to being done. however, from a bit further north of the otenagen road all the way to talmoon they are removing the tar, replacing some culverts and resurfacing the road!!!! its passable, just gotta follow a lead car.

There was a couple pcs of equiptment sitting in the ditch just south of the Bstore on Sunday when we were there. Kind of looked like stuff to finish the shoulders to me. :scratch:

got back home yesterday. with the wind and on and off rain it was tough to plan anything long term, even going out in the woods or on the lake. :confused:

got there sat about noon. lot more leaves down then around home. feed the birds and mulched up a bunch of leaves. had a fire and drank beer!!!!!! :rotflmao: Sunday my nephew and his friend left early.  headed out to the deer stands to check them out. need a few boards replaced and a couple trails cleared out so i can get a wheeler back there. just gotta make sure i get that trail wide enough so that rack on that big buck dont get stuck in the brush!!!!!! :smoking: :happy1: decided to go fishing.....got half way around the lake. completely opposite end from the access and got rained on. got my  :moon: wet . had caught 6 pike by then, one 28 inches. all swam.

tue and wed was off again on again rain and clearing so i did a little hunting. seen grouse but never got any. i dont hunt ducks but a few out on the lake. seen a few deer. brother showed up wed late afternooon. had fire, a few cocktails.

thursday headed home. it sure was peaceful with noone around. even cleared out a tree on deer hunting trail . be going back up MEA weekend.

Forgot to mention, when I went back to my deerstands I had a WTF moment. Someone had put up a portable type ladder stand 60 yards from my permanent stand. It is one of those one legged stands with the small steps on each side. I'd never climb up in that. :tut:

It wasn't there last year and there could be no way they didn't see my stand already there. :surrender: I think. :pouty: sure hope I have no issues opening morning. Been hunting back there for 30 years.

I was up three trips in Sept. Did some fishing and my buddy was bow hunting, no deer but had a cougar on the camera by my stand. Two trips planned for this month and then the big hunt comes. May take the boat up week after next if the weather is nice. Have a great day.     :happy1:

Dave over at Hayslips died about six weeks ago. He had bone cancer and spent the entire winter at the Mayo clinic two years ago. I saw him a couple of weeks before he passed away and looked good, he was trimming grass. Too bad as he was a great guy, plowed my yard out for years. A very hard worker. Hopefully the cougar is gone, probably headed a few miles west from me.   :happy1:

Almost all loaded up and ready to hit the road in the morning. At least 7 days of doing whatever the hell I want. :rotflmao: :evil: come to think of it, I do that anyway. :sleazy:

Be careful Gunner, one never knows who shows up at your door. :smoking: :sleazy: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

Maybe I'll see if that merc fellers around to. :evil: :sleazy:

Didnít go out myself last weekend. Getting pre winter chores done. But the leaves have come off the trees and brush, and I heard pretty regular shooting.

I didn't hunt but saw quite a few walking around. Seems like a pretty good year for them.

Pan fried grouse....mmmm,been alot of years since I  had a ruff grouse dinner,plenty of sharptail and prarie chickens from out west nut they don't compare to ruff grouse table fare.

So glenn,gotta ask,as you don't chime in on shooting threads,did you ground/tree swat the birds or let them take flight? curious minds here.main thing is you nailed two birds,congrats.See any woodcock?
