So, we all know how devoted Heidi and Barbra are to there garden, It doesn't mater if your a child, a teenager or a 1000 pound moose they'll stop you. Just look how Barbra treats this poor little moose looking for a meal on a cold winter day.

Didn't find the time to finish the post last time. Joe and I went to Sutton to search for some rabbits. I drove Heidi's car to the top of the coal mine roads and it was a bit ruff but fun. Joe and I saw several rabbits but we were only able to shoot two.
Lat week I met a friend from the http://forums.outdoorsdirectory.com/ and we hit up the Talkeetna area for some rabbits and grouse. We found some new spots we cant wait to try to hunt some more and we even got a grouse each. well sort of, mine got hit by a car. We knew we had to scare them off the road as you cant shoot on or across a hwy. He scared his up to a tree on the other side of an ATV trail and walked off to shoot it. Mean wile I tried to get the bird I was after to fly away to a tree but all it did was walk to the middle of the road and take a seat. I tried to get it to fly but it was hopeless it sat their as a truck drove tords it. It jumped up to fly at the last second but it was two late it became a pile of feathers. I looked over it as Dusty cleaned his and as far as I could tell the breast meat was fine so I cleaned it up a bit and took it home. I had the bird for sinner last week and it was great, well tenderized.
This weekend I had to move the camper back to dads so I thought I should do some hunting at the same time. I went to Sutton as it is closer to dads house. I started walking at 10:30 AM. Chai jumped a rabbit from the brush for me and I took a quick shot and got it. There were tracks all over in some spots it looked like the rabbits had dug through the snow and pulled grass up. I didn't want to try to drive to the top of the coal roads on my own so I walked clear to the top. At the end there was a Ruffed grouse waiting for me Chair scared it into the air and i shot it. I wanted to walk to Eska Falls but I ran out of time. On the way back I jumped a small bull moose that had two cows with it. I got back to the car at 5:30. Man am I out of shape my legs are sore today. Next week I'm going to go ice fishing for the first time of the year should be good.
