Niptrip 2011 pt 4

Recommended Posts

Another little word to the wise here, a small fan would have been extremely useful. The propane lights and furnace throw a lot of heat, but it all rises. Being the rookie and relegated to the top bunk I found it somewhat stifling. Also, for the first few hours in the bungaloo, we had no snow and our holes would slowly start to ice-over. A small fan would have pushed that warm air enough to keep the holes open until the snow fell and they could be mounded. There’s also the human production of methane gas and smoke from the breakfast fry-up to consider.

A chorus of snoring, the heat of the top bunk, and my ever-increasingly harsh headache kept me up the first night, so I fished. I didn’t catch anything until first light, and by then the other boys were rousing. John’s famous for his breakfast and he cooked us up a feast that helped us all feel better.






The second day was basically a replay of the first with enough action to keep us well into the fishin’. Our party-hardy neighbours had left for home in Hamilton (after they lost the bet to us for most ‘eyes iced). Good dudes.



















Look how pleased he is - awesome!



Nay was a hot stick!





The lights of town


Donny's dinner night - awesome!

    • My 2011 Whitetail Buck

      I have been hunting Whitetail with a bow for 20 years now but have done so very passively. Going out only a few times a season or missing several years in a row has kept my success very limited, as in only one doe harvested up until last year. I always enjoyed my time alone in the woods when I could get away from work and also enjoyed a few outings with Misfish. The last few years I have been hunting from a ground blind due to the lack of large trees to put a stand in but didn't mind it since it

    • My 2011 Black Bear

      Last fall was my 2nd year of Black Bear hunting. The year previous (2010) I harvested a young bear with a rifle although my intention was to use my bow. Circumstances didn't allow that to happen. I got another chance when I went up to Eddie Norths camp last September. I was up with my Dad and Son fishing for the week but I also set up a trail cam at a bait sight to see who was in the neighborhood. By Wednesday a bear was coming to the site and I was able to get video and pictures of the bear. It
