Just wanted to let you all know that I have not abandoned this blog. We have been extremely busy at work for the last few days. Each day I came home with only one thing on my mind…SLEEP!!
Starting from tomorrow we have Labor Day weekend here in British Columbia. No working for three days, my old worn bones will be pleased about that. It gets even better! Salmon season has opened which coincides with the salmon run. This year is a bumper year for pink salmon, an estimated 20 million are heading our way and into the Frazer River. It gets still better, one of the best stretches of river to fish for pinks, also called humps around here, is less that a ten minute drive from our house.
Considering all this it is almost needless to say that I spent the better part of this evening preparing my fishing gear. The two selected rods have been checked over for worn parts, the reels are cleaned in and out and loaded with brand new 14 lb line. The lures have been equipped with new and razor sharp hooks and put in my travel box.
I am ready to go salmon fishing from early in the morning to late in the evening for the next three days. You guest it. There will be no post on this blog for the next three days. On Monday night or Tuesday you can expect a full report plus photos from my salmon fishing trips.
After the fishing mayhem is over I finally will take my new Weatherby rifle to the range and put it through its paces and come back here to tell you all about it.
Next weekend or the weekend after that my friends and I will drive to out hunting area to do some repairs on our hunting camp and get also some fine tune scouting done for the upcoming rut season.
What else is there? Well it looks like this is shaping up to be one of my busier hunting seasons. I start of with the early season duck hunt followed by some upland bird hunting. By the time that is over I get ready for the mule deer rut season – that huge buck I saw last year is still there! From the mule deer hunt I will make it just in time for a late Canada goose hunt and then it’s off again to hunt winter coyotes. In between I have a few seminar and hunting clinic dates coming up. The beauty of it is that it is all within easy driving distance from our home. That’s the benefit of living in the middle of hunting, fishing and outdoor orientated area.
Of course you can read all about my trips and adventures right here on this blog starting with the salmon report.
