[QUOTE=Otokiak;812441]Well I got picked last week to go nanuq(polarbear)hunting and couldn't believe it as I was #108 on the list and we only had 8 tags. I didn't catch one unfortunately but had a blast searching. We spent two days out on the Hudson's Bay Sea-ice going thru ice-fields that would make you shake your head. Imagine piles of ice pushed up by mother-nature approx 60 feet high and the blocks of solid ice being the size of a snowmobile or a truck ... it was insane ... yet other spots were flat and smooth. We found tracks but nothing too fresh and they led into fields of ice we couldn't travel towards the flow-edge. It was approx -50 degree's celsius the two days I was out. There is always next year ... HAHA! Here's some pics for ya. Cheers,

p.s. I took my Springfield M1A with me ... :D



An M1A? At least, I trust that you only took the legendary single round with you while after the bear?

Ok so he took it with a 223...I believe that from the blood pattern on the snow in the background. I see 2 really good spots. And that is a good bear there. That would make a nice warm coat!

Seriously, those boys could probably do it with a simple .22 if it was all they had. But I wouldn't want to be there.

My guess Pheasants Forever, Ducks Unlimited and Cabella's have done far more for wildlife than Greenpeace ever has. Just to name a few.

nice seal btw. looks cold out there.
Exactly! The only folks funding large scale management, restoration, and habitat protection projects are hunters, either through government agencies or private organizations such as you have listed.

I have many pics from my hunting trips including my Springfield M1A I used 2 yrs ago for my muskox hunt ... will post more pics later! Cheers everyone,

POST YOUR HUNTING PICS ... mods if this is wrong place please move to appropriate place!

How do you go about whale hunting with a rifle? Shoot them and then harpoon to pull them ashore?

tmcfalls, we push them towards the shallows of shore with the boat ... harpoon them first with a bouyie attached and then shoot them just behind the blow hole when they come up for air. I shot/caught a beluga almost 3 yrs ago now and shot that with my old 303 lee enfield.

Well, deer bow hunting season has been going on for a month now here, but I just got out this past Sunday and Monday. Was fortunate enough to get this small buck Monday evening at 6:20 PM, literally about 2 minutes before a thunder storm hit the area. It was thundering and lightning southwest of me as/while I shot, and the rain came almost immediately after the shot. Luckily I found him the next morning 90 yards from where he was shot, 40 yards or so into the woods. Obviously no blood trail to follow, so I had to play hound dog, and that ain't easy for a guy my age.

Just thought I'd share the pic and wish all the bow hunters (and gun hunters) good luck this year!)

Thanks for sharing.

I quit hunting about 15 years ago. Just lost interest.

But if you really want to make us jealous, just tell us that your avatar, is a picture of your girlfriend.
We may be getting older, but we didn't go blind!

Thanks from Quis ut Deus
