    Well... early this year I spent a week in the far north of british Columbia! And they dont lie when they say beautiful british Columbia! What an amazing place! We got up on the hill tops and was nothing but untouched wilderness as far as the eye can see! Wow! My main focus was catching a lynx! Would have been my last of the huntable cats of north America. Well it didnt happen this time and that's ok! Cause well... poor me, I have to go back again. Hahahahah.

    So not only was it awesome getting to roll around on a snow machine, in the back country of awesome british Columbia, but I got to see new techniques in trapping and see new amazing animals! Learning to better read sign and everything! Food was ok but heck I didnt even care. Hahah. I had such a great time breaking trails, even got sideways a few times and even got caught off in the ditch and had to get the machine unstuck... maybe once or twice. Maybe 4 times but whatever. It was a blast!

    In the end we caught a wolverine, pine marten, cross fox and ermine! I'll tell you what... that litter ermine was just as exciting to me as thewolverine! I never would have thought a wolverine would have happened in my life!

    Very nice indeed. That is a different type of an adventure. Looks like a great wolverine.

    Different indeed! I've always wanted to get into trapping but where I live doesnt allow me to easily get out there. This helped me get there.
