You going to shoot some wolves?

We try wolf once a year since the beginning of legal hunting.
 Once we herd some wolf but never seen any in the wild while hunting.
 It's a LOOONG season , starts in sept and ends in March.
 YES we will give it ago again this year !

My boy and I went out for a last chance bear hunt

Cold, wind, hail, and snow but the grass was very green .
Covered a lot of ground.


This time we where seeing a lot of bear sign anyway .


The higher we went the more snow and drizzle mixed with hail, nice...


I did not get any pictures up on top at 7000 feet not much to see, just snow on the ground, snow in the air, and snow in our faces.

We did run across an old mining community now apparently  mostly owned by the forest department.
Lot of old mines and excavation holes .











Good thing I had a "Logger" with me , needed his services .



It did not take long for the road block to be removed.




I know , I know , how can anyone having this much fun call it a "Curse" right?

Well Some place along all the "LOOKING" we managed to lose two sets of gloves, a hat, and a $800 gps...
 We did how ever find a huntable  bear, we saw two others but on private land.
We ranged the bear at 289 yards, I had my 4570, a doable shot but thought we could close the gap some more.
Wind was in our face and timber between us and the bear. About the time we made it to the edge of the timber and what should have been a good 100 yard shot, the "Curse" the wind switched 180* yup bear got our wind and was in the next mountain range when we stepped clear of the brush...
It was a very nice bear too, not Yellow but shinny BLACK.
Dang it .

Earlier this year my Furnace( forced air ) went out, actually just the Fan motor . BUT it is 38 years old and around 50% efficient. Time to replace the old dinosaur.
Well I had the idea that while I was at it I would do AC too, never had it but now would be the time to do it.
I had two "BIG " furnace Co give me an estimate and 3 "Small" shops . The small guys don't offer Train or any of the upper end units but there still furnaces and ac units I have herd of.
Big guys came in a LOT higher $2500 for the heater and $5000 for the AC, Plus I have to have an electrician run a 220 line out to the AC unit out side. That is running around $800. Smaller guys are running $1600 to $1800 for the heat and $1900 to $2300 for the air plus the electric work. I'm looking at an 80% furnace from each.
 A 95% is about double the price. My gas bill is only $35 a month now with the gas water heater, I would have to live to 114 to get the pay back .
We have gone with out air for 45 years looks like we will do with out the rest of our time here on earth.

I just can't justify the $$$ for 3 weeks of hot.
AND I can get a no interest energy loan for the heater but not the AC .

Lucky thing is I have time to shop around it will be mid September before I fire up the heater now anyway.

Life is making it tuff to replace the old Sububern
