Some spectacular pictures Jean Guy. The first 7 are awesome and the one with the couple moose in the birches are certain ones that should be displayed.

hi steven and doo4adoo !!!

 

i know about that ...too stubborn to learn ...so , i wont post my best ....saw 9 moose this morning ...thick fog when i left camp ..

on the other post ...the cabin next to lake...the guy had a moose for a few days...female having lunch with his flowers

last saturday morning ...went to the dam of lake frenette...took few pics and decided to walk to the lake on the lower side of the dam...i ve been   a few times...but always coming back with my boots wet...

so, i went a bit further on the road...about 1500 ' from dam...walked 4-5 mins between trees...then the lake...finally found a dry spot ....i was  there taking pics since 10-15 mins...and just like that, i looked at the farther side of  lake...a tiny black spot ....looked again ...started to move....moose about half a mile away...he started to walk slowly ....took a few pics

 

made anew friend while working with chaisaw and thinning saw yesterday morning ....partridge spent the morning with me while working !!!

Wow!  Your pics are even better than usual Jean-Guy!

 

Maybe its the fall colors?  Thanks for sharing!

hi sled dog !!!

great to hear from you !!!

merci !!!...yaaa...colors.....light ...timing ....luck...and like i said before.....everything is between the 2 ears!!!

i could post way nicer pics...just too awesome !!!...without swelling my head up !!

 

i have more time today ....just to follow doo4adoo comment....

back in july , i was on fb deleting messages...i noticed that a woman messaged me...saying ..

bonjour jean-guy , mme x from your town mentioned you to me for your nice pics of the valley !!! it would be our pleasure if you could share your pics...

the girl is a publicity advisor for the school  board...and the way i saw things....she has her own publicity business...

 

2-3 weeks later,  at the grocery ...i met the woman who mentioned my name to that publicity advisor.....i said...hey i received a message from your friend wanting my pics...she does nt even offer  me a few bucks !!!

so , i told her...do you know the cost of a camera ...lens ...wine and beer to give me imagination...etc...

she answered,let me check we must have budget for that ....never saw the girl again or any replies

so ,  that publicity advisor wanted my pics for free....i rather post my pics here !!!

that publicity advisor...i checked her fb ....she can afford to go south in the winter....and me, the only place i can afford to go south....its on the south branch on the z e c where my camp is !!!😛....ahahahaha

back this afternoon...for moose hunting ...

This time of year he may be migrating to his wintering home, a little south of  his normal summer nesting grounds.

He'll pop up soon I'm sure.

Or he's lost in the woods..... LOL

hi all !!!

thx for for the concern...back in the civilisation ...in my big village ( hahaha ) ...around noon..

i was supposed to come back last monday....but decided to stay a bit longer...should go back tomorrow for a few hrs

no luck yet....saw a little mom sunday night at 5 57 pm....2-3 mins before darkness.....and at the same time ,my friend had one in front of his truck about 1 mile away from me.

great weather since 2 weeks...only yesterday ...heavy rain..not much pics this week ...boring looking at the road...

 

for jak...i don t hunt ...only with camera...must be close to 3000 pics in the last 17-18 days..
