    StickW,
    That is one dandy Moose, classic big webed frontals and one to be proud of! And your choice of aircraft isnt bad either! Congrats on both.

    I was wondering the same thing. Heavy canvas type? Good to keep insects away.
    Wheres the blood? Mine would be heavy stained.

    Nice Moose!

    ND Pheasants probably down again. Saw some of this years hatch but baseball size hail hit many locations. Birds spotty and my guess is 70% down from banner years. Corn and Sunflower harvest has just started so that is where many birds were found. Ample moisture grew the crops high so corn was difficult to shoot over. Scratched out some decent shoots thanks to my dog Toby. The Dakotas need some average years back to back to get numbers up. Perfect weather with light wind and mild temps helped the old guy stay comfortable and optimistic. Placing him for shots not easy.

    I always enjoy your photos Eric. Both those ole dogs are lucky to have you around. Most of us are jealous that they both still want to play with you.

    Nice as always Eric.
    Good to see your dad was able to participate and enjoy. Those days are precious.

    We’re seeing similar results. I flew to Minot last weekend and birds were definitely down. Real dry. And this week we’re in North Central SD. A buddy and I have done well but our group is WAY down on bird success.

    Still good oof to get out and enjoy.

    Was good to see see you at Jaransons Fall Color Tour.

    I grew up in Hoyt Lakes MN. left before the wolves were an issue though.
    Figured global warming would have taken some of the bite out of long stints in the stand, guess not..
    Congratulations on the nice buck!

    Saw 21 wolves on a telemetry flight earlier this week. These fellas brought down what we assumed was a moose and had it go through the thin ice before they were done...

ID:	39780 Shot two average bucks this year. 214.6 lbs. The first one on the 5th and this one on the 14th. Can't seem to be able to attach a picture of the other one, but it was slightly smaller than this one. Used my Remington Model Seven (18.5" barrel) in 7mm-08. Shot was 224 yards. Federal Fusion 120gr.
    Bucks are just now coming into the hard rut. Saw more scrapes and rubs in the past week after the hard cold snap. Hunted pretty hard, as I spent sunup to sundown out in the woods since the 3rd of Nov.

    This fellow was headed for the timber at daylight. It was a cold, frosty morning at 16 degrees. I used what’s becoming a new favorite rifle for me. It is a custom .338 Federal shooting 210 Partitions. He was 215 yards out and my only option was an offhand shot.

    Not quite hunting but I'm on my way home at around 1am this morning on a 4 lane heading West at 70mph when this coyote jumps off of a snowbank on my right side and runs in front of my truck. I think the ABS saved his ass as he popped out the left side of the truck and stopped right outside of my driver's door. He started trotting down the westbound lane on my left so I starting moving at the same speed . Darn yote never left the left lane and we were side by side for a couple hundred feet. I even had time to dig out my phone and turn the flash on and get a few pictures.



    Then he made an in proper U turn

    A little tidbit:
    Awhile back I shared a couple beers with a hunting party comprised of Southern Pacific Railroad conductors. The topic of animal encounters on the tracks came up, often not ending so well for the critters.
    Apparently, (they theorize and I believe it) most animals, predator or prey, use their speed to elude capture, often choosing the route that best allows them to Run fast
    Unfortunatly the raised railroad bed appears to provide the best means for escape.
    Many elk, cattle, bear, etc. have exhausted themselves and been overrun by trains as a result.
    Guess that may explain why game often runs down the road for awhile before wising up and darting into the woods.
