The Hunt 2015 – Day Seven

Well, this is a new record, seven days of hunting deer without any good chance. I think the deer have won.

It’s not fair…

  • They’ve had the slowest start to winter ever. No snow. Not even cold. They’re just lying out in the fields or at the edges. They don’t have to show up at the public hunting areas for food or shelter.

I guess we’ll just have to wait for another year when winter comes howling and the deer congregate in the forests where we can find them by their tracks in the snow. Today I did my best walking many miles. Setting many ambushes. Same with other hunters. No one made a kill within miles of my favourite hunting spot.

The day wasn’t a complete loss. My blood sugar must be in great shape. I saw some really magnificent trees and some that were suffering. The poor oaks are barely hanging on with pines towering over them. The pines love the area. Some are getting to be ancient. Others are being knocked down by wind before they reach their prime. That’s life I guess. I saw pretty large wolf prints. I’ll bet wolves manage to take some of these fawns at night when they are wandering about.

    I am pretty certain that the great networked Pascal reimplementation of the original and quite workable FLOSS GEBC got the very honorable fate every FLOSS project would be proud of: reach version 0.3.1.alpha.

    That high?

    Well, it’s been a couple of years now. But I think you’re overshooting (har-de-har) the mark with an 0.3.1 alpha.

    My guess is that the thing basically does not exist. In any form whatsoever.

    Or did you just settle for GEBC to generate your range charts over the last seven days?

    I expect winter will finally arrive this week so I should have a deer by the weekend. Eventually I will have my own land which I can make desirable for deer… 😎

    You’re hunting on public land, what do you expect?

  6. Apparently,“An intense low pressure system with a strong cold front will sweep across the province Wednesday afternoon bringing an abrupt end to the mild November weather. Behind the cold front temperatures will plummet to normal for this time of year with overnight lows in the minus double digits. Alongside falling temperatures blustery northwesterly winds are expected with 60 gusting to 90 km/h likely. Flurries will be accompanying the winds which will reduce visibilities in blowing snow at times. Finally, with the cold air, northwest winds and open lakes, snow squalls are expected in the lee of Lake Manitoba and Lake Winnipeg. Conditions will improve Thursday night as winds begin to diminish.” it’s not just my bones nor my hunting success that points to strange weather. The meteorologists show October was the warmest on record. That ends today. A cold front is moving in and may well give better hunting weather, even cold winds and snow on the ground.
