Sheep, great pics.  Wondered where you were hiding out.  Are you down the winter road at all?  I used to guide that area for bears for about 6 years along the firebag river and also north at Embarass Portage along the Richardson on the way to Fort Chip.  You are right.  Not much game unless you are close to the rivers.  Tons of big bears in the area.  Gunslinger has the camp up there now and as he knows you sure do have a ton of big bears.

Hey Nube, im 50KM straight east of Ft.Mckay, which works out being 50KM NE of Ft.Mac as the crow flies and 14km off the Sask. border. Takes roughly 4hrs to get in here from Mac and the last 57km of Ice road takes about 1:45 behind a pilot car. And ya ive seen a total of 3 moose tracks along the streams here in the 38 days ive put in since Jan 2nd.

I was further north by quite a ways of Ft. Mckay and not much east.  You are sure out a ways though.  It is real different country for sure.  Are you in a sandy area?  The whole area I was in was sand, pine trees and moss.  No grass except near the waterways and not much travelling around except for the odd wolf pack and I imagine any moose around got run down in no time.

Ya Nube there is a good amount of sand. A few pine ridges and a few streams with spruce along them. Lots of low willow flats as well. Even the wolves have been non existant. Only wildlife here has been rabbits and lynx.
The project has been in the news a bit over the last week. It's the pilot project for Cenovus Telephone Lake.

Not worth a crap, been working almost as much as you. Just 6 days a week 11 hrs a day but at least I get sundays off so that I can work around the house.
