    good reading

    stranger, if it helps i've gotten a few laughs on this post myself... even if i didn't get to see your pm's.

    i don't like to post a bunch because i often find there are a ton of people that have walked a mile in my shoes too, so guess that entitles them to make judgements on the way we believe.

    but since i wear a size 14 it sure is hard to find anyone's shoes that i could put in a mile or more in... so you keep on being you and doing your thing, sure seems to be working well for you (and i like coffee too, so might see ya one day).

    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.
    Seems Fuel may take a drop in price soon here and the July Barge should really lower the price, but who knows.:confused:

    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!!!
    I'm just goshin". BUT, if I ever get up that way I'll stop by; I like coffee. I'm sure your ready for a little change of weather. The temps will rise fuel oil comsumption will go down, the geese will rise the geese will go down. The summer comes and fuel prices will go down. AND who could forget the bugs, I"M sure you miss them too !LoL

    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.

    who knows, maby someone will just "show up":cool:

    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 :rolleyes:

    '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.
    Doc

    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.:rolleyes:

    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.:rolleyes:

    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!!!~

    '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!

    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???:rolleyes:
    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........

    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!

    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:mad:

    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:rolleyes:
