Spent the past 10 days out in the Sticks of Cadomin .
« on: July 06, 2011, 02:18:53 PM »
Well we be back from out trip to Paradise , man I gotta admit we are so lucky to be 4 hours away from the mountains , Nothin like wakein up in the mornin and taking a long deep breath of fresh mountain air , kinda makes me jealous that people that get to live in the mountains and do it daily . Anyway back to the topic at hand .

We had a great trip Left Last Monday and we got home yesterday those days went by way to fast . Meet up with Fellow AO member Sonny J , I can officially say Great guy was awesome to meet him and have a few laughs and enjoy a few beers around the fire .

I was shocked at the amount of snow still up in them there Mountains , its insane . Looks like the area where we were at the Mcleod river had been so High eroded away part of the river bank leaving it very weak , and sucked in some huge old trees that were along there .

The Rams man we saw a few hundred easily , the most weve seen and we have been going to this same place a few years in a row . If the Elk numbers around them parts were any indication Elk populations will be great as well as the moose and Deer . Saw a Grizz and 3 cubs ( this years ) walking along the other side of the river just below the railroad tracks . Then Saw a huge Black bear up on an open meadow I guess yad call it on a mountain , was pretty cool to see .

I did a little bit of fishing in a huge pool right by our camp site , caught a brookie about 8 inches other then that thats all the fishing I really did , did lots of scouting for Elk as I want to hunt Elk in that area come Fall .

One afternoon there we were sittin around the fire pit we had built , and enjoying a few kokanee , and a Mulie buck and doe , come trottin across the road just walkin , and we watched them come across and right behind my truck maybe 25 yards away . They didnt even care that we were there they stopped looked at us for about 2 minutes , the buck moving his head as they do to find out what the hell you are . It was a pretty cool experince , I nearly felt like a Bow hunter there lol .

Anyway I got my brothers weddin here next week and my one fishin / huntin buddy is getting transfered with the Army so busy next 2 weeks then a week In Kananaskis , then its just 3 day campin trips that might get extended , until Fall when Ill head back to Cadomin area to hunt come fall .

Anyway heres a few pictures of our trip .












Funniest thing happened on our way to Cadomin , we were Rollin thru Edson , and there was a RCMP officer standing in the ditch doing Radar behind a sign , He looked up at us looked thru his Radar gun looked back up shaking his head , I dont think theres nothin wrong with my mobile home .

There were also lots of people givin me the Thumbs up or the looks people would give as if they were like WTF is that thing . I dont care really what people thing , 800 bucks and it dont leak stays fairly warm and thats about that and Gas and everything works furnace , fridge just needs a new propane line no biggy just ran outta time ta do it .

The one night there it got to - 4 colder then a witches teat on the 4th of july . Hell is july not October . Ahh well once I got cozy inta my sleepin bag and my teeth stopped clacking together things were good . That was the day it snowed up ontop of the area mountains , as it rained down at our level .

After a night of - 4 there were pretty non existant . It was very cool the whole time even the hotest day it was only about 18 that was yesterday . Never a non windy day I guess thats why Cadomin is known as the Valley of the Winds .

great story and pics BBJ! Thanks for sharing. Gunna try and get up there soon for our annual trip.

Great story and pics BBJ.  Forget the rest of the comments that have nothing to do with the thread.  Just ignore and he will go away.

What ya gunna do skeeter, threaten everyone that says something against you! In your best interest you should maybe grow up. It over everyone knows how you feel and we really could care less so please move on tough guy! And BBJ if you have proof of all you claim, show it or you to should also grow up and move on. There has been at least 3 threads wrecked from you guys talking trash so lets move on please.
