    Sometimes you just get lucky. This handsome fellow blessed us with a visit while grouse hunting yesterday.

    That is NICE! A large part of hunting for me is seeing what I don't expect to see. Enjoying the other myriad of things that can happen in a day in the woods. Years back, while hare hunting a woodlot close to home, a young lynx followed an equally young Labman for a while. I think both yougsters were equally curious about the other and I got to stand still and just watch the moment unfold. No, we did not get any hares that day with our bows, but that lynx more than made up for it.
    Thanks for sharing the photos,

    We were, since the rabbit numbers came up the lynx population has really grown on the Kenai. See them quite a bit but rarely get the chance to get pictures liek this.
