    I like drinking beer and whiskey, shooting guns, jetboating, love a nice rack and a tight line, I am simply a sophisticated redneck...

    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
    I re-quoted Hal’s post to save you some gray matter teevee.

    You said you've run a snowcat for years I get it...Not here to prove a point. I have 3 graders and 3 dozers that I deal with...like I said roll another.

    I saw a black hornet take a big horse fly out of the air like a fighter jet, after a very brief struggle to kill it the hornet flew up to branch with it and hung upside down by 1 leg and ate half of it and then flew away. Wish I was that tough!

    Had a bad winter for winter ticks on moose this year and I saw a murder of ravines absolutely trying to bombard a live yearling moose while an adult moose tried violently to chase them off as they ran from them through a farm field. Pretty sad. Came across a few significant scab/ hair/ blood clumps in moose beds this spring, so disgusting and so sad. What a way to go.
    If the world is warming why are there so many new snowflakes?

    If we are all equal why do you demand special treatment?

    You can not comply your way out of tyranny.

    Fire them ALL!

    cabin entertainment is rich sometimes. We were in a cabin with 2 translucent panels in the roof for light, horseflies used to group up there trying to get out. On occasion a wasp would fly in through the door and grab one out of the air, then perch and proceed to field dress it we called it, bite off the head, wings and legs before flying off with the body

    Glad to say I have hunted Northern BC

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

    It wouldn’t surprise me if it was. There were what looked like trailer tires to run the tracks and I could just see the top of an old school metal jerry can that was bolted down through the ice in the cab area. It looked like it was there as maybe an oil reservoir or something. I’m going to go back next year after the snow is gone to take a look.
    It was in the woods about 100 yards from a fresh cut block in a gated area at the end of an old trail I found with lots of collapsed small hiking bridges.

    It's a stupid thing we say
