Well, made off the line. 6 days in the mountains does the mind and soul good. I finally got some well needed snow and the wind took it away just as fast as it came. Picked up 14 marten, 2 weasels, 1 lynx, half a red fox, and a half of a wolf tail. I caught a wolf by it's tail in a fox snare. It looked like it held for quite some time before 4 inches of his tail turned loose. I most be doin something wrong. The marten and weasels had my 3 wolverine baits polished off clean. I guess I'll have to start trying to catch the marten. I only seen one lynx track and he ate 2 marten out of lynx cubbies. Caught him Monday on a remake where he ate a marten. Got some finish work done on the cabin and hauled in a couple loads of firewood. The coyotes outsmarted me again. On the way out today, the ice dropped out from under me and left me in a pickle. Ended up tearing the tougue off one of my sleds. Back to the cabin with the heavy gear, piggy back the sled and off down the trail. THERE'S A FEW THING YA NEVER TAKE OUT OF YER SLED OR OFF YER MACHINE- warm gear, axe, rope a long and rope, fire starter, firearm,tools, shovel, and YER WOLF GEAR. So back down the trail I go only to cross paths with the big pack of wolves out in the flats! I didn't have a single #9 on board and I got tracks everywhere. I guess I'll come back next week and leave them a whole lot of Christmas presents. Live and learn.
