    Default Good morning....~LOL!!!~

    And it was a "Good morning"

    5 miles down the river and a couple hundred Caribou crossed my path......soooooo to make a long story short and uncontraversial, I shot her in the n@!k (body part) with my M%$#n (not powerfull enough rifle), and she collpsed in a full run for the willows into into a skidding "meat", 1 shot .

    Again , I was impressed with the performance of the Cz*^k (Inhumane wounding bullet) and its bone shattering effects that actually took a chunk of spine outta the body

    So those that find it nessearry to nit pick and critisize my ways, contenue to PM me to adnauseium with your rants and please enjoy it while you do....~LOL!!!~ Cause I'm laughing right back!!!Hhahahahahahahah!!!

    Still fat, though the Warbles in the backside skin have made the hides worthless, I shall soon discard them along with the stomache, as I see the hairs are getting loose as well.


    Soooooo....I picked up firewood and headed home for lunch and house chores....and decided to post while I eat and get a laugh outta what I wrote..Hahahahahahaah!!!!

    Dang, missed the editing time limit!!!

    soulda edited in that the "editing" on my part was in the best of humor, though in after thought I should have put a disclaimer.~LOL!!!!!~

    This last week or two Ive had some "Hot" PM's on this subject, and some are of the opinion that I should not encourage others to do as I do....
    Shall I lie, delete or quit??Hhahahahahahahah!!!!!

    I best think it nessarry to post "What I do" and if it works for the masses, great! If not, oh well!!!

    Naaaaaaaaa........half the fun in this board is the opinions expressed here, however controversial they are.


    I did do some reading about the Hauge convention and "Dum Dum" bullets from India for the MK.III Enfeild and why Softpinted bullets were "Inhumane", and that FMJ's were settled apon, 1st as a reliable feeding bullet (the dum dum ung up often) and second that they(the FMJ's ) Killed men "Humanly", not a "Wounding round"....

    So , Originally, FMJ's were for Humane killing and soft Points were "The Nasty", not so nice bullets....~LOL!!!

    I alway figgure that as a "Human" all my killing was "Humane" Hahahahahahhah!!!!!!


    Then again, as Ironic humor dictates, I can see the change that Men, hunting and Bullets have turned completely around in the last centurey.

    maby I should photoshop the Blood out next???

    Well, Ive probly killed this Thread as I have many others before it, but I am here to share

    A true subsistance hunter would have bit it on the neck. and tracked it for a day eating the pieces that fell off...

    the use of foreigner rifles on domestic game is a pure shame... Those overseas brands just have no consideration for saving that soup bone your family could have used in a meal... next time take your kid and let him use is 243 rabbit gun on it.


    enjoy dinner.. i would...

    By the way stranger... as for the city dwelling, armchair roasting, tree stand hugging, Hunters you mentioned... they will never really understand life up here, let alone life where you are.. find a windy place to hang their outhouse rope and let them use it...

    now boil me up one of those hoofs i want to try one

    Can't argue if you got a full belly and you always do.My guess is your gun and bullets have magic but all others like it are worthless.I'm thinking you got a bit of Raven in you.

    Its not the arrow its the Indian. You made a good hit and now its supper time. What is wrong with that. You have hunting skills that most do not. Mr Cabelas fresh from the city is not at your level so for you its just fine. Mr Cabelas needs all the help he can get as he is lacking in skills

    stranger, I was using FMJ 3006 mil surplus for deer 43 years ago because it was free and it worked OK cause I didn't know it wouldn't. Funny how it works OK when your feding the family. Keep up the good work! Tom

    Thumbs up Keep it up

    Stranger, keep doing what you've been doing. I really enjoy reading your story and the pics. I always take the neck or head shot when it's available. I've only lost one animal in 35 years of hunting. It still ticks me off a little when I think about it

    I've learned a lot from this site the last few years. I always get a laugh out of those that think there way is the only way. But the main thing that I've learned is that - how's that old saying go? A lot of the "professional", (politically correct) opinions on here are just like *********s. They stink. Or something like that

    Sranger, I always love to see what you have posted! However I was a bit disappointed after reading you saw numerous caribou only one had spinal trauma. Come on? Did the gun jam? No one else in town was hungry?

    I too am still waiting for a bit of pickled caribou feet? Gave my buddy some musk ox rocky mountain oysters yesterday. Later man, keep them coming!

    Default A Good evening too!!!

    Well, Im always one up for multipull kills, but they had me figured about 1/2 mile before I arrived, and had a Caribou type Hi-way plowed through the 5 feet of snow that the Willows lining the river hold. Theres a Delta here with the rivers lined with them and tree lined lakes here, and it would be an all day job to get my rig and and Unloaded sled outta that crap!!
    Soooo, I settled for a fat one and stopped after that, as I only saw skinny bulls in shooting distance.

    I figured with shopping over so quickly, Id go home and drink my thermos of coffe while working around the house...NOT!

    The eldest son and oldest daughter immediatly declared THEY were going hnting and how could I say "No" ???

    a Dozen bunnies later and the 11 year old daughter was demanding that it was now "her turn"....~LOL!!! She had indeed helped her sister with skinning and gutting, so again, who was I and where does this gasoline come from???
    I took this when the sun was quitting us and I wanted dinner.All those Bunnies were getting me hungry.....

    Ahhhhhh, yes, I belive a nice loooooong ride is in my immediate future....~LOL!!!~

    Might add too that I have never had pickled caribou feet , YET......only slow cooked with beans.....Now Pickled seagull eggs are worth their weight in Gold........

    'Stranger'-
    I, too, have enjoyed the many posts you share here and learning from your family's adventures you document here on the forum.
    It sounds like you had a full day of hunting 'in shifts!'

    I am curious about your name 'strangerinastrangeland'...
    I apologize if this has been asked before, and if I recall correctly, you have mentioned you are not 'originally from Alaska'.
    It sure seems that you and your family display here one of the more 'salt of the earth' lifestyles in Alaska.

    Heck - you could offer an apprentice position (if you could stand it) and give some fortunate souls a REAL education!

    Sincere 'Thank You' for sharing!

    Moms the "Alsakan", dads a "Montanan". Ive been split between the two all my life.

    When they devorced when I was 16, and I stayed with dad a bit for some highschool,then came back up, as I wanted to see mom, and then have only returned South to visit.
    What I am "NOT" is an Alaskan Native. At least that dosent matter around here with people, I dont see prejudice much untill I hit a city and hear it, but I see that were all just people, so I dont listen long.

    Ive been hunting all my life, but stedy at it since I was 18, and when I actually had a "job" its only been seasonal, as they often are.My grandpa Frank took me on the first hunt I remember.
    My mom REALLY promoted shooting and she always had her .22LR, and she could put alot of guys to shame with it. Dad likes to Hunt and thats "why" he shoots, but he does like his guns.
    The wife grew up as the 14th of 15 kids in a large family and was one of a couple who took care of her parents and worked with them, so shes "educated" old school, as a Kobuk River Inupiaq. Her dad passed away last January at 104 years old.
    she was the first born in a house, as most were born in tents, and was litterally "Born to it"
    Old "Koksiinaq"Joe had alot of Guidence for us and getting us to make a living at it. He wasnt always nice about it either.

    I look at hunting a way of life, more than anything and I try to go about it by "doing the right thing" as it go's.

    I would apprentice guys.....But it would cost in equipment, and gas, to be able to "get 'er done".....the wife has designs on "how to" books or vids, but well see, were trying to figure out how to go about that correctly.Could be $$$ in the end for more gas......~LOL!!!~

    You could just send the 91/30 and I'll give it some experiance!!!
    who knows, maby someone will just "show up"

    Default 'SISL' = Stranger In A Strange Land!

    I can do the 'medical math' - you are only 'half a stranger!'

    Thanks 'SISL' for the insight, once again!

    104 years young. . . as I say to my patients - years ago there was no need for 'gyms' because you got your physical exercise on the job, whether at home or away. Now it's offices and butts planted.

    How-to books and vids... Sounds like you two are on to something, with a cast, to boot!

    Also -I'm thinking you might be able to acquire some $$ for gas by having an apprenticeship!
    You mentioned gas money twice.... soooo . . . . barter could work!

    Again, thanks for your info.

    Tell the wife I'm sorry for her loss. I know how it would be when my father goes.
    My 91/30 has plenty of experience and I'm sure if it could talk it would sing of many great battles and bitter times.
    I might just "show up" what street do you live on? LoL

    Default I always like your posts.

    Don't let the PM's get you down and just keep on doing what you've been doing. I would love to trade places with you but I'd probably starve. Fresh 'bou sounds good right about now.

    Im just laughing at the Pm's, not big deal.My way of poking back in public, where they should feel free to say it all but cant seem to.No
    what makes me wonder is how in heck do so many find my e-mail adress...???
    Ive given a couple fella it, but I doubt they pass 'em around.

    Its no secret that I live in Noorvik, on Kobuk River, and I can surley find a wayward soul a comfortable place to lay their heads, so if anyone should find their feet on the ground here, just ask "which way", everyone knows us...... the coffee is boiled and the cups are clean...~LOL!~

    91 Mosins are wonderfull Rifles in any variation. I was able to aquire a few Finns when I was in better financial shape, and thats why I mention Gasoline which is STILL $7.85 a gallon, as is heating oil.No new guns till summer tourists come buy up some artwork and I can boat around on the cheap.
    Seems Fuel may take a drop in price soon here and the July Barge should really lower the price, but who knows.

    Summer is ALWAYS cheaper, and its on the way ...........and with birds expected in teh last week of April, Geese are only 4 Weeks away!!!! Yaaaaaa Hoooooo 4 Weeks to Geese!!!
