Ready to join the conversation.
« on: April 27, 2014, 09:20:31 PM »
Hi everyone.

I joined this forum some time ago but chose to stay on the quiet side while I assessed who is who in the zoo.

I am here for a bit of light conversation, a minimum of drama and my interests are varied.
Hunting and fishing of course and I'm a bit of a gun nut as well which is probably no surprise but I also dabble here and there in a lot of other things.
I'm semi-retired and have what amounts to a hobby job now...just to keep me out of dutch with the missus. ;)

I'm mostly just here to kill time in the evening and to join in with others for some light conversation.

Last night I started feeding jacks outside of my work building hopefully I'll have a herd of them by this fall.
I also watched a beaver squeeze itself under our fence and waddle towards the pond we have for fire suppression.

With bunnys and beavers and time to kill... I naturally chose to chat on line with you all. :o

Pardon me but can I please have my country back?

Sounds like an interesting life..

But I must ask,how is it you have beavers and jack rabbits in the same yard lol.. I know it's possible but you don't hear that one to often do you..

Hey Marmot, welcome to the forum. I too am semi retired and am living my dream here at the cabin. My wife and I have a home in Airdrie, Alberta but seldom go home much anymore. The hunting and fishing in this province (Sk.) is GREAT and you don't have to wait for ages to be drawn for a tag. There is always the general elk and moose season too and a feller got to love that. Which part of good ole Alberta are you from?

Welcome Marmot, some good info from great guys. And a few cronic malcontents , but all in all a good forum. A bit of good humor too, watch out for Sonny ,bit of a loose canon, enjoy.
If you are too busy to hunt , you are too busy.

The jacks are there all the time... the beaver is new. I named him Chucky.
there is a creek that borders the property...I hear that they just took outa dam so... maybe his is disp[laced and wandering a bit.
I sure never expected to see him there though.

Oh...and thanks for the welcome everybody!
