Since Im in Kotzebue, and in my wanderings , visitings today I met an interesting couple of Hunters who stoped me and asked about the Seal Hunting going on 100yards offshore.........kind fooled me at first, The one looking quite like a pudgy young man in military cut, the other quite attractive and in her late 20's......dressed in Cammo, talking low and laughing outloud, still in their camp clothes (and smelling like it)........ apon second glance, (Ok, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th, like that fast ) ......I figured I was talking to a coupla Lezbians, who had just completed sucessfull 'hunt' for rut Caribou.
They described a couple of days of really dealing with the weather , and evidently spent a couple days stuck in the tent, and a couple days actually Hunting, and both were stoked they had come through it all and were headed back to where ever....
When I asked what they planned on doing with the Rut Bulls they had took, one mentioned she was gonna Mount hers , and the other elaborated on doing her own flavor Grinding, and Sausage Stuffing, and that though her partner is a vegetarian who wont Eat Meat......... "Hmmmmmmmm, seems right I guess" was trailing through my mind.
Then the conversation turned to trapping and how to fly planes, ect..
So I congratulated them on their first Hunt, and wonderd on musing about the conversation I just had and they walked off , hand in hand......and I watched my friends chuck spears, doing their thang infront of Kotz, seems like quite a few have done well, but somewhere , out in this world are two happy women, who done it all themselfs
