    bark e collar

    I know this is the lounge but figured it's not really hunting related. We've got a young lab that barks now and then if he isn't being the head of attention. I tried the whistle last evening when he started and he stopped, he started to bark this AM and we hit the whistle again and he stopped...

    Living At Home Finally

    First off I want to thank everyone for the kindness when my mother died 21 January. That was a rough spell. I finally made it back to the house in Washington middle of Febuary not expecting to sell the thing when out of the blue we had a offer to vacate by 21 March to bind the sale. We promptly...

    House is sold!!!!

    Our house in eastern Washington is finally sold and we're heading back to Alaska where we belong. We need to be out of the house on 29 March but buying where we are going will take a little longer as we need to wait for the season to open up. Not much on the market in the dead of winter so we'll...

    Mom died

    I had a great life with my mom. She & I lived with her immigrant mother & father; I became bilingual because of this. Mom taught me to ski, fly fish, shoot, hit a base ball, catch one, stand up for myself, etc. We spent days together on streams in Alaska fishing. She always spent the...

    fuel prices have finally done me in

    I had a great trip planned to the Judith Basin area but backed out. I just can't see spending aobut 400 on fuel for the trip. I am sad but this is the way it is. I looked at the prospect and decided I need the money to go see my son or daughter instead. I just hope I can sell the house here in...

    Trick or Trout

    That heading is from am old Robin Williams skit, but it brought back fond memories of my ill spent youth and how it made me they way I am. I did not grow up with the "American Nuclear" family, I grew up with the horse and buggy era because mom got divorced and we moved in with old country...

    Doom&Gloom Folks

    I just want to bounce this off of you folks on UPH to see if I get a more informed answer. Now I have to admit I have some real weird, off the wall, crazy friends but I love them for what they are BUT the majority of them are so doom and gloom as of late that I am wondering if I have my head...

    bought a MIG welder

    I sold my stick welder last spring thinking we were going to be successful and sell our house so we could move home to Kenai, but that did not pan out and I was without a welder. A buddy in Palmer, AK has a nice Miller 211 I believe and he was telling me to go ahead and buy one like his. I was...

    I want to throw up

    My lab, Gus, in my opinion has a torn ligament in his right rear leg. We went to our normal clinic and the vet said nothing was wrong. Limping getting worse if he plays and romps like he likes to do. Gus and I have had great times together and I was looking forward to at least 3 more season with...

    Scarpa Foot Wear

    After reading the Orvis footwear post I figured I'd throw in about Scarpa boots (now remember these are Italian made boots so the last is does not fit like American lasts in fact if you look at European boots each country has a wee bit of a different from one another) I've never purchased...

    Fly Tying

    I am sure there are those of you that tie up a few to splash the water with. Any suggestions for a simple set to tie for Montana rivers (north of I-90 to the Canadian border). Dry, wet, streamers, hoppers, nymphs etc. we're not picky. We are Alaskans in exile so until we move back we are going...

    Need helpful advice

    I am driving south to hunt in November. What I need to know is this. Public lands to hunt & where I can camp nightly with my truck & camper. I don't have money to pay for private access, so public walk in like Montana has is what I am asking for. If some of this has potential water fowl shooting...

    2011 hatch

    My drive is a long one, Alaska to the 48, but I'll be coming if there are good numbers. My Montana areas don't look all that inviting. I see Kansas, SD guys saying season will be good. How about Oregon or ND, any word on those areas. I posted in Oregon but figures a post in the main vein might...

    Hatch?

    I am looking at different areas this year because of the wild weather patterns. How does Oregon look for pheasant & other upland? My Montana areas look real bad & my drive from Juneau to the 48 is long, but if there are birds I'm coming.

    Thought for the day...

    All of us have a thousand wishes. To be thinner, have more money, a new phone. A cancer patient only has one wish, to kick cancer's ass.

    Winnet

    Just got back from a slam bang trip to Winnet. A buddy wanted to deer hunt so I tagged along with the dog to shoot birds. We saw a fair number of Huns but did not pursue them very far as my dog got a ton of cactus in his feet and I in my hands and fingers getting them out! I'm not too familiar...

    Hi, I'm RedNose

    Lost my Red Nose Pit last December and to remember her I'm now Red Nose. Live in SE Alaska, before that South Central but venture in the 48 to hunt upland, plus we have a house down here that we are selling so we can permanently detach ourselves from the 48 except to hunt birds. Glad I found...
