Thanks guys, great trip, He's an big old male wolf caught him in a #9 on pee post pass. The 9 has the typical 10 foot of chain with the base plate swivel and staked with a 12 inch cabin spike. He's got the chain wound up tight and wrapped around the base. It worked but I planted another 9 with a swivel on the stake also. Kusko, I'm sure I'll sell him for the right money. I cannot keep every beautiful fur I get, my house isn't that big. Furs are kinda like women, ya can't keep every beautiful one ya catch. The furs would take up too much room and the women wouldn't get along.

You are right Kusko, Len that is my groomer behind the sled at 20 mph. I thought it looked pretty cool so I held the camera over my head and snapped a few photos. Kinda looked like the state snow plows.

Holy cow. I had no idea that thing would be throwing that kind of snow. I could not figure out what the heck it was. That has to cut down on the gas milage. ;0)

Len, I still get 10 mpg pulling doubles and the groomer with the Scandic. Just got the big white on the board. 7' 3" nose to tip of tail. I've got my hat trick now. Black, Blue and a White.
