"Moose Hunting" Begins!

We have been very busy this past week "hauling" moose hunters into the "bush". Moose hunters are a "strange breed", and the amount of gear they need for a week is "astronomical". Oh well, they look forward to their "hunt" all year long. It just gets a little "stressful" being able to depart small lakes and narrow rivers when their hunt is over, with all their gear, plus any moose they have harvested. As you just "clear the trees", all the "plaque" in your arteries "lets go", and is absorbed by your body. I guess that's why old "Bush Rats" like Punch Dickens lived well into his 90s, with his "mobility and his marbles" still intact! Anyways, we moved a camp for Dave Pomarenski from Fraserwood the other day, from Shebaylo Lake, as he wanted to go back to his old hunting spot at Northern Lites Lake! Here's how it went...........
