Poached Chicken

As a point of reference, the locals never say grouse, they always call them chicken.

Once again it is not great video but I do not expect to ever see this again.

12 gauge, 3 inch, 1 ounce slugs.

To bad we are in the shade and the video quality is low.  I'll do better next time.

Quad Ride



Finn was all like "we are going to do what?"  And Zane would not open his eyes for the first 38 seconds.


Once I promised that all their friends would think they are cool, they relaxed and enjoyed the ride.  I have no pictures of us in motion as driving and taking pictures at the same time would be irresponsible.


They both climbed up on their own once we were done.  They really liked the quad ride.


I know!  Crazy right!!  And only 500ml.

First Tracks

Fresh Powder


The winter road is closed which means it is not maintained and if you get stuck or break down there is no traffic and little chance of rescue.  We have been going out anyway.  It is hard to resist first tracks in fresh powder snow.  Also, it is easier to find grouse and ptarmigan as there are less vehicles scaring them away from the road.


Typically I am not a fan of posting the gore.  However, this is my first head shot, the bird is a ptarmigan.  I am pretty happy that I am getting to be a better shot.  Less suffering and more food this way.

Box Fight

In this corner, Mr Brown


In this corner, Mr Green


Let the boxing begin


And the winner is



Mr. Green

Who? Who?

We saw a couple of Owls today.  They are super shy and do not like having their picture taken.  This was the best I could do.



Can't tell by looking up at his bum, but this owl is really big, big like 2 Canadian footballs stacked on end.
