    Open up https://postimages.org/ then click “choose images”, then (obviously) choose your image from your photos. It will upload and give you a list of options. 3rd from the bottom is “hot link for forums”. Click the blue icon at the far right of that choice and then paste in your post here.

    Please don’t post photos of tampons…

    Bus below is fairly close to a road, so not really “in the woods” but there is no easy way to have gotten it where it is, so I’ll post it as an example of how easy it is to put up photos.

    Look around is there someone you can introduce to shooting because that’s the only way we will buck the anti gun trend sweeping Canada! "tigrr 2006"

    This was an old buck and the hormones were such the previous years antlers could not be shed.

    Hunting in Sooke many years ago came across a set of false teeth sitting on a stump, made me laugh. Somewhere someone was likely questioning their spouse, (where's my teeth)?

The video clearly shows it was filmed in Terrace in August of 2013, so there is no point in saying there is pavement in the video.

    Given the area covered by 2-8, there is a crap ton of logging going on. I’m still betting it was an excavator scraping rock for blasting. Those machines have lights, and if a road building contract was behind schedule, an operator could easily be burning the midnight oil. That type of noise would travel a lot farther than the engine noise or lights of a hoe.
    i'm going to go with a grader scraping hard surface, maybe frozen or concrete or?
    As soon as I heard it, I thought of the sound a snowcat blade makes when scraping an ice road. Usually a serated cutting edge but when the ice is cold and hard and at slow speed trying to plane things smooth, the blade sets up a similar howling sound, just the right harmonics and it is loud. Think of a 4 meter tuning fork
    Glad to say I have hunted Northern BC

    Simon Fraser had pretty good judgement on what he found in BC

    I have close to 20,000 hours in snow cats (started running Thiokols and LMCs 34 years ago) and I’ve never heard a sound like that come off a cat blade. Where do you run cats? Must be some crazy ass snow conditions!

    Lots of cars in places I have no idea how they even got there. Once I found a tent that had a burn hole through it still smoking. I ran up yelling fire and asking if they were ok. No one was around and then I noticed kids toys and stuffed animals in a circle around a stump. This was 20-30 km up the bush and then down a deer trail. No one was there.
