    It was a spare thought in my head, Ive hunted so many years, with my rifle, but archery is easy too, so I had to try..........
    So hacksaw in hand I slipped further into Bubbadumb, and wacked a stray Mosin M91-30 Bayonett and drilled a place for it to seat in a shaft my son had made for another Harpoon, but I commandeer'd......some lash and peg later and aI had the Mosin Nagant Pointy Death Tool, and Bull Caribou in front of me in the boat......penatration from top shoulder through thorax and stopped by briskek bones from over penatrating, the withdrawl was as smooth as the hypodermic like insertion and Death was done to one Fat Bull.No wounded as the tight knots swim packed, no ricochets, no misses, no skinny or sick, only perfect Bulls , picked from among thousands who are crossing the rivers, streaming south. Natures best food in its best condition, Meat for the Carnivoirs.

    It rained so much, weve been drying meat and fish insde with strings and a fan, while were out during the day.

    Thats me, and Im not Criminally Insane....just inspired.

    Off with the Head, out with the Tounge, and the rest go's in the boat....only the antlers are left behind, for old men to gather and sell.
    25 more suscummed over the last few days to the hole a bullet would have made with 99% less damage. Im finally home, here before freeze up comes and makes hunting over thin ice a gamble with your life and I preferr to stay home till the ice thickens....i set Whitefish nets, and traps, and let them hunt.....Caribou Bulls in their pre Rut prime, lotta fat and meat as the coming darkness takes over. Im going into the Arctic winter "Rich", and thats really good after a Summer of none stop rain (snow now, tonight is a 40mph blizzard) mouldy fish, fermented fish (aint all bad) because with 2 months of flood stage waters, we had a terrible fishing season, cathing mostly fish sticks and logs........ and few Berrys or greens grew big due to the lak of sun. Im likeing the local stores fruits and guys have cabbage, potatoes and carrots local grown in trade for fat Bull meats :D

    Dont do this at home, it could lead to injury or death and dying by Bayonett is a real danger, if a guy can close with you........I have a new hobbie and bayonett tests confirm it as fact.........Make mine a Mosin!

    Kinda Neanderthal, but as an old pig sticker, I like it. :D Saves on ammo if nothing else. Don't even need dogs, just gangster 'em in a river. :D

    Thats pretty awesome. Forgive my ignorance, but isnt that the way these creatures were hunted "back in the day?" It almost seems like a trip back into time to do it that way.

    Well, the originals didn't use bayonets, but...heck, Geronimo didn't have wheels on his bow, either. :D I mean, you get the bayonet with the gun, I, myself, have sat around wondering what use I could put to a SKS bayonet. :D Never came up with a good answer. I could stick pigs in the trap with it, I guess, but a .22 is easier. :D

    I heard the wx had been bad this year with the rain and snow that never seems to stop; didn't you set some kind of record this year for snow fall and late snow? Stay warm and great story, thanks.

    yeah, it's bad, the summer King salmon run DID NOT SHOW UP
    then the later run of reds and pinks, (BOTH VERY HEAVY/LARGE)
    were blocked (the call them dog, cause they caught them for the dogs, better eating on the silvers/kings)

    and they were prevented from putting the nets in for the pinks and reds, due to possibility of by catching the kings.....
    once the OK came for them to fish again, the rivers were at flood stage

    OH and it was raining, and the flys were out (means they can't dry the fish outside/unprotected)
    that means lots of subsistence families on food stamps this winter...

    That, Shadow, is exactly why Im hitting the Caribou hard and hopeing for a fat Whitefish run to arrive soon. Gotta know your alternatives and just how much a fella can work, move and store. Even Caribou and Fish have their limits.

    One Moose comming up as soon as Nov 1st hits and its Cow season.

    If you don't like your preserved meat, I bet March and April get's kind boring food wise.
