Using the right bait, can do wonders for others.

First Catch finally!!! Now the best video starts.

I haven't gotten around to doing any more re-shoots.
The Spruce Hen King Rooster would be one to get closer and slower.

The Roads.
----------
All the snow made the roads exciting.

Once off the main highway, there was only going in the ditch
to worry about. Some of the roads were gated and nobody on
them but the 3 or us. Mike would let Brownie run on these gated
roads, Sometimes seeing the Oil Field Maintenance guy. It was
on these reduced access roads that Brownie would encounter grouse
and moose. When stopping at a trap we seldom saw game.
We sure didn't stop the truck just to get video of brownie going
after animals. We had too many miles to cover. The pickup box full
of bait helped for breaking trail. Experience at bush driving was needed.
Just once; did I need to give a little shove, to get the Truck moving.
High speed for the conditions, was what got us through some spots.
A trapper must also watch for tracks. So it was mainly Me and Brownie
watching the road. All the snow, made it great for seeing game tracks
zip by. As the snow packed, it made the roads smooth. We could go even faster!!!

Years ago. I was a consultant for Shaw Cable here in Canada.
I'd often buy muffins for the rest of the staff. Just to stay
on their good side. Anyway one day I brought in 2 dozen huge
Tim Horton muffins With Butter (Bigger and better back then).
By chance, the board of directors were meeting that day and
they all came out at 10:00 a.m. for coffee and ate most of
the muffins.

They hardly touched the meal brought in by the catering co.
Scallops, shrimp, salmon and all kinds of fancy food remained.
The staff was allowed to have the leftovers. And there was lots.

Every board of directors meeting after that. I would bring in Muffins.
It worked very very well.

Give it a try. There must be many other circumstances, where putting out
good bait, will buy the less fortunate a great meal???

Damn good caterer. She couldn't figure out why so little food was
getting eaten. When Hortons first started they made the product locally
and the muffins were huge. I have had lots of order in at work over the
years. This beat any of it hands down. This Board treated themselves
well and the leftovers were exceptional.

The accusations I made against Greg Gilbertson on HuntShoot.com and other related websites were completely inappropriate and untrue. I apologize to Greg Gilbertson for my comments and I wish him the best !

Sincerely Doug Pederson

Thanks for the videos, The whole accusation/innuendo/DNR-bashing thing is probably best left alone from now on. This isn't the place for that.
