I know JR, my memory is already shot! Did you go up toward Mountain House for those photos in the woods? You can't have that snow in town yet. But theres some grouse up there too. There's a creek just before Mountain House. That's the picture in my house by the slider door.
Those where a couple miles further up the hill, towards Sisters. Did stop at the mountain house and let her run that creek for a little bit, just left the camera in the truck that time :/ As far as snow here in town...HAHHAHAHA we got a real heavy frost the other day, grass was white, does that count?
I rember seeing that picture next to your slider, I told the wife it looked familar, just wasnt sure actually where it was...heh.
Seen some recent picture of your boys, they seem to really be growing Hows the old man doing? Is he able to get out in the yard to at least chase feathers still?
Wapiti Wacker how close are you to Moscow? The reason I ask, the breeder I got my pup from has a 600 acre ranch near there, says he has harvested an elk out of there for the past 5 years. Seen pictures from the area, looks nice.
First of all, if you haven't gone winter backpacking, it needs to happen in the near future. It puts a very unique twist on the summer version of the activity. Yes, it's cold but it's nothing that being prepared can't remedy. Beyond it's therapeutic and recreational value, I think it is a very good tool for the big game hunter as well. I don't think that you can spend too much time getting to know the ins and outs of the area that you hunt. And there is no better way to gain experience in...
