A few pictures from the Boundary Water Canoe Area Wilderness Area in February of this year. No motor vehicles allowed including snowmobiles so dogsled team is a good way to get around. No bugs that time of year either...   The deer are not used to seeing people and while are not tame, they are curious about humans more times than not. This guy was looking in the window of the cabin and just as I grabbed the camera to take a picture the dog jumped up to see what I was...
We have seen red foxes increase in numbers also, unfortunately coyotes too. In the arrowhead region there are a large number of red foxes which considering the habit is mainly forest is a bit surprising it used to be grey fox habit. Very few coyotes there but the wolves are out of control and the two do not coexist well.   Hunting grouse in the fall always makes me a little nervous with the Toller. The Nova Scotia Duck Toller was breed to look like a red fox and mine...
Thanks for posting that Lefty. I have a pair of his Meindl boots. While I also have a pair of gore-tex gaiters I seldom wear them and wear brush pants instead. Obviously not deer hunting here but ruff grouse hunting instead.   NY State had more deer per square mile than any other State in the country in the 70's until the early 80's. I took this buck in Chemung County in the mid 80's and he made the record book.   I used to travel across the county hunting deer...
Oh you will be fine at Horse and Hunt, or pretty much any Sporting Clays course. One of the things I enjoy about SC over other shotgun sports venues is that most shooters are there to have fun and are generally very helpful. I would encourage you to try H&H, you will see many others that are just starting out too. We all had to start some place at one time  50% out first time out with a pump is not bad at all! I grew up was raised shooting pumps, Ithaca 37's and 870's. I...
As I would be also, those look fantastic! Congrats on your new shell Leeds.
Thanks. Horse and Hunt is worth checking out IMO. They have 5 courses, the clubhouse burned down this spring and the new one is supposed to be completed soon. They have 2 packages available on groupon right now, the third one is sold out. They are good for 1 year but you can't use them on the weekends in Sept. and Oct. That is when they get swamped with all the hunters that go out once a year right before hunting season to shoot a round of clays and call it good. Lunch is...
Guess I would make it +4 now. Not the first time I have agreed with rydenfan, and I'm sure it will not be the last time.
Why do I think there must be some Brandy shell involved here? There is always Russell Moccasin if someone likes a lot of lacing and speedhooks. Over 100 types of leather, but no shell. Grand Slam Sheep Hunters truly are function over form. Some mornings after bird season starts and I'm still sore and tired I understand just how K75 feels. The new AE boots are on an unknown last, only 2 choices of leather and limited sizes. And I also am not sure about the eyelet spacing....
LOL no offense here at all pepper, I am not a native of this region and never dreamed I would end up here. Except for the winters which are bone breaking cold it is not as bad as I feared to be here and have come to call it home, but I do look forward to moving back South when my work here is done. The only offense I would take is find out you were playing again anywhere within a few hundred miles and didn't let me know. Now that my friend would really upset me....
I never could get the 8 last to fit my foot well and gave up on it. I believe several have gone down in length and up one in width to get a good fit on the 8 but that didn't work for me either. For me the 5 last fits my foot best of all lasts, and my PA in black shell is one of my favorite 5 lasted shoes. I am pleased with the look of the 5 last, although many are not to me it is perfect. If they were a Southern company it would be called "Billy Bob's chili". Not that...
