WOW ! Great photo's. Some of which captured a high number of pesky mosquitos / fly's / no-see-ums buzzing about, reminding me why I prefer winter over summer when in the northern outdoors. :  )   When I spend anytime outdoors in Northern NH at this time of the year I am eaten alive.

JG, Thanks for sharing .

Great pictures as always JG! Keep up the good work! Those raised hunting platforms, who builds those? Are they privately owned by citizens or hunting outfits? I assume you have a couple around. Thanks

bonjour jak !!!

 

merci !!! owned by citizens...guys like you and me.....its on the z e c ......you must pay to fish and hunt....even to circulate...i always buy my annual season pass to circulate....111.00$$

one of the best for moose hunting in pq !!! can remember exactly....around 825-850 hunters for moose hunting ...

before , where my camp is....it was dad...back in the 60's and 70's and at the lake , 5 miles away where i go to party ...it was a private club....dad was a member...dad had a cabin there til 72 maybe....and the camp...

 

turned to z e c in 76 or 79 ...so, some members at the lake were mad and sold there cabins ...because i guess , afraid of too many people around them ....fishing and hunting ...

the platforms are 8-10 miles from my camp...we have a few....next to camp...

be sure ...as soon there s a new clearcut .....new platforms.......

lots of rain today ...no see em and mosquitoes welcomed me after lunch !!!

 

z e c.....zone d exploitation controlée..........controlled exploitation zone !!!

 

guys like me who owns a cabin on the z e c ...we all have a little area to hunt ....about 2 miles by 1.5 miles for us.......some have a lot more...

bonjour jak !!!

 

merci !!!

 

i have an old rifle in the camp ....just in case....but i don t bring it with me while riding...stay in the camp !!!

i ve been surprised twice by a black bear ...one right in the yard of the camp....back in 2014  and maybe 10 years ago ,while walking in the woods..

the one in the yard....right after i unloaded my stuff in the truck....i was at the table enjoying a cold one....that black bear appeared right in the yard.....

i used to walk tons of miles in the woods....not much now...

Bonjour Jean Guy, 

Love the hunting stand picture. That guy has a good sense of humor...

 

bonjour je me souviens !!!

 

yaaa...funny  !!! to keep '' strangers '' away during moose hunting !!!

about 5 years ago....3 guys ( journalists ) from cbc in french ,disguised like hunters ...came in the valley to make a reportage about moose hunting and those hunters who take too much ''territory '' for their hunting on the z e c ...they have nt been welcomed...

they ve been on that road....and bs started with a hunter half a mile from that stand...

about 10 miles from my camp !!!
