Pics from the Matapedia Valley !!!

Recommended Posts

hi playhard and neksldr  !!!

 

yaa...hope it ll bring luck !!!

first one in a few years ...before i was riding a lot more...75-100 miles a day ...often...to look for antlers

i know a few spots where moose spend winter ....the problem is....still cold at this time of the year...put extra clothes ....so , im not much interested to walk half or 1 hr to look for them ...when im 25-40 miles from home ...im not interested to freeze on my 4w on my way back ...

yaaa...always a good thrill when i find one...not too many guys looking for them ...1  guy i know and maybe a few guides from duniere reserve...

that patch of wood ,north of the road....few moose spent winter there....just looking at the trees...and there s another spot about 2 miles north ...need to check at least on the road...

i wish i could walk 1hr or 2 ...but im not interested...rather ride !!!

hi jackstraw !!!

 

ahaha.....but  most of the time i feel guilty not to take a few mins and look around 

on that map ...about 10 years ago....for 3 years in a row , found one in that spot ...within a radius of 100' of the other ones..

thats at the '' border '' of duniere reserve and park matane !!!

1 hr ride north of my camp !!!

Hey JG. 

  Many years ago David and I were on the old 386 trail north of Amos.  Most deserted trail I ever rode on. Anyway I was last and David started waving his arms and wanting me to go bye him.  Then off his sled and ran back on by me. Out of the snow he pulls a moose shed. I ask why did you wave me bye and his answer was I didn't want you to see it and get it first. Still have it in our cabin and we often laugh about finding it. Only shed we have ever found in Quebec.
