My boys and our "Trapline"!
I had a ton of fun running a trapline of sorts out in Bethel. Unfortunately, we had to sell our snowmachine when we moved to Fairbanks. We plan on getting another in a year or two after we get into a new home here. In the meantime, we decided it was time to get a trapline going around our home. What is it that we trap you ask?????? PESKY VOLES!!!! We set up about 10 traps and after they had robbed our bait....them voles is smart! We altered our tactics and Dad pulled some tricks out of his sleeve and Voila.......SUCCESS.
Hunter and the 3 voles..........note what Hunter calls the "DADDY VOLE" in his left hand.
Nice work Huntoo!
This is what it is all about.
Hunter and I had been planning a night out in the cabin during the winter. We waited until we got a stretch of good weather......a balmy 2 degrees above zero. Shorts and sandal weather I have always said.
Arctic Man....you got nothin on me and Huntoo!
Chance was gonna sleep out with us, but when he saw how cold it was outside he decided he would "stay inside and protect Momma". Way to take one for the team Chance. I got Hunter situated in his -20 bag with some toe warmers and some blankets. Other than an icy face and frost all over the inside of the cabin we slept snug as a bug.
