It's a capital B with some capital R's right behind it BRRRRRRRRR...... When I woke up this morning at 5:00a.m. it was 0.5degrees out. That's right ... 1/2 of a degree Fahrenheit ... that's cold enough for me.
Here's a pic of our friend Porky with a nice 35 lb. bobcat that he harvested just three days ago ... notice we had no snow then. Way to go Porky - I know you've been waiting over 7 years to get that harvest tag.
I know ... there's a lot of opposition about this life style out there; but until you walk in our shoes and see how hard of work it is to keep these animals populations under control so they don't die from disease and worse yet, spread disease... don't judge us. My husband has been an instructor for the state of Wisconsin in conjunction with the Department of Natural Resources for 15 years on trapper education. He has also been honored as top lot trapper with NAFA - North American Fur Auctions. Our family has been supplementing our income through the fur industry for over 35 years and for generations and generations before us. It IS our way of life.
Another pond freezing up ... but not enough to safely walk out on ... yet.
One of the snow covered roads we drove down ... I just love driving in on these roads when there's snow cover like this. The sound of your vehicle is so muffled from the snow and there are no tracks from other vehicles ... Love it!
We saw some turkeys ... (yeah... Dear Hubby is a turkey sometimes :) ... but I meant the pics below)
Well ... thanks for coming along on my little woodland adventure. We didn't harvest any fur yesterday - but did have an enjoyable afternoon together out in the woods.
Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
