the excavator you see on the other post ...its a brush cutter ...it was parked about 5 miles from my camp .....road should be cleaned very wide for 6 -7 miles...

Thank you.  We can trade for hunting season if you want to.  I eat deer, just don’t hunt them.  I would like to run the back roads around your place for a couple weeks, fall would be perfect time to bring the bat mobile up to la coulee verte.

hahah...

 

you must take in consideration that people around here take their hunting very seriously...

during moose hunting , i don t use my 4w.....only next to camp...about 2 miles....

there s hunters everywhere...don t know much about deer hunting ...

best time to come...maybe between the  2 hunts or after deer hunting ...could be late a bit 

there s tons of roads to ride...just too bad...can t ride park matane or duniere reserve....nice scenery there...

That little guy looks like a real prick…

Pic is from the old port in Montreal, that guy was having a bad day.  When we came back a couple hours later the divers were in the water inflating air bags.  I think that recovery might cost more by the hour than having a sled brought back from the bush….not by much though

That looks like and old two grip Rottnee converted to a forwarder. What happened to the old F4 Dion that hauled your wood before. Nice looking pile of wood, a lot of tough days to make that.

bonjour smclelan !!!

forgot about the brand name...but start with the letter '' v ''.....from sweden

guy from amqui ...operator looks like a great person ...but the owner need to invest ....

waiting for a new set of tracks...6500.00$$ + freight ...3500.00$$

operator waste his time welding cleats....

 

back from camp ...went to cut grass.....vision on the road is a lot wider....nice....brushcutter is less than 2 miles from the old beaver dam ,before orange camp..

took a pic of our brand new lawn mower...already'' smoking ''...tbk...ahaha

saw  2 moose...32 c when i left camp

almost forgot....the f - 4 dion guy retired from business 2-3 years ago.....

Not nearly as fancy or powerful as the brush cutter clearing your camp road Jean Guy. However the bushes on the road to my cabin are not near as heavy.  An enjoyable way to spend they day. About 3km from the pavement to the lake. Took 3 passes each side, a big T bone with mushrooms/ onions, and not sure yet how many beer to complete this job.

Very happy to see you have started to watermark/signature your pictures.  You put an incredible amount of time and effort into your photography, no one else should try to take the credit.

Lucky indeed! What you call Black bees ,we call white faced hornets. They are no joke!

You have been seeing lots of nests very low or on the ground. Old saying is the higher the nests the deeper the snow. Hope it's wrong.
