browndog:

Very well written and fascinating in that I tend to compare the way I hunt and the terrain, animals etc. with others in much different places.

You do pretty much the same things but just in different ways, with different terminology and also with slightly different clothing at times.;)

The read was kind of like a combination between a very good book and visualizing a very good hunting trip/vacation all wrapped up in one.

Sometimes "our hunts stateside" tend to follow the same dialog and plot but this was great. I'm looking forward to more of the same.;)

Matt,
I assume the references to 6 digit numbers has to do with military mapping scales. Interested to know what the numbers provide you.

Truly enjoyed reading about your hunting excursions. We do some things a lot differently, some very similarly. Interesting how we rationalize carrying heavy rifles to obtain pinpoint accuracy. All part of the fun.

Thank you for writing a thoroughly enjoyable read, you are fortunate to hunt such rough and wild habitat. What bullet do you use in that big tac rifle for your hunts?

When are you coming to Canada to shoot in some BIG country...

Dick and Ian,

Thank you for your kind comments! It's hard to judge how something written on this side of the pond will translate on your side (particularly when it seems so pedestrian in comparison to some of the wilderness adventures you fellows have!), so I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Ian,

The six figure grids are just the map references from the standard UK 1:50000 mapping (1km grid squares). I put them in the log book to aid my memory when I re-read the entries. I thought you used the same mapping in Canada? (I certainly did in Wainwright, Suffield and Shilo -but that may be a special case I suppose (?) ...once spent a couple of weeks doing avalanche control in Rodger's Pass ..but can't remember what maps we used there!).

As regards our great Canadian excursion; hopefully in the next few years! (....I still have my Manitoba Hunter Safety Certificate safely filed away somewhere!)! Our friends in Brandon have just had another baby, so we'll wait until they're a little less house-bound!

165NBT; I've got it going rather fast at 2722fps, but the accuracy is phenomenal. Interestingly, in the winter hinds eg, I was using 150gr NBTs and the wounded animal I describe was the result of bullet failure, larder work showed it had blown up and failed to penetrate; same thing happened again once later in the trip too, and I swore never to go below 165gr in NBT again!



This made me laugh:

...I think my wife would word that differently (making greater use of the word 'madness'!)

Very nice and interesting read, thanks for posting and sharing. I particularly enjoy the style and also greatly appreciate your taking the time to lace in the so many new(ish) (to me) uses for words I thought I knew well.

At some point I definitely need to take a month or so and stroll around that country, I'm sure I'd have a good time and fine experience; I may even learn some proper English!

Thanks again.
