    Howdy everyone. Happy holidays. Was gone during the mornings and getting back well after dark.and around there that can be 5 pm its dark. But havent had time to get on. So glad every one has kept the thread going. I been doing some wolf hunting. Up the road a peace some home owners started missing a few cats and dogs.. some cows..chicken here and there..and a couple of turkeys .when they contacted me to go have a talk to the wolfs I told then it sounded like they were just getting ready for the holiday season too. But I guess they didnt like the thought of there cat on the table . But I got to plow the horse thru some good snow drifts and skate down some mountain sides. Hence I just got done reshoeing my wolf hunting horse. Kinda looks like its going to be one of those winters here where they keep sneaking down for munchies so probably will keep me busy at times. I have never been a fan of riding in long johns. Reminds me of ice fishing. I don't understand that one either.those fish are there when its warm out. Hope you all have yourself a very merry and happy holiday season.has anyone on here ever welded spikes on your horse shoes?? They work really well..just remember to not weld them while there on your horse.. learned that the hard way years ago. But at 12 lots of things made sense that I learned wasnt the smartest thing to do. Guess that's why they call it growing up right? Ride safe. I actually was missing the stories and people on here. Sorry to hear about your bucking horse stan. One time I took a very well broke horse and taught him to buck just so I could show off to the girls. But the horse got way better at bucking then I got at riding him bucking. Well..long story short. I never did that one again either. Made sense when I thought it up. And your right stan. The little things add up when your working with horses. I always make a horse stand if I have a halter and lead rope on him.never let them graze. Well one trip into the wilderness here with some paying clients and this one nice guy was letting his horse graze on top of this little cliff. Well. Took me a hour to get down the mountain to find that horse of mine. So I never let my horse eat when I have a halter and lead rope on him or her... good thing I often learn from doing things wrong.. ride safe everyone.

    You have country music in New Zealand? I don't sing to my horse. He already thinks I'm crazy. I sing to the deer....Irish ballads so they wont jump out in front of us. When I took care of the horses on a ranch I was riding my favorite ranch horse one day when two 1000 pound elk came out of the brush and crossed the trail about twenty yards in front of us. About a quarter mile further they crossed back. It didn't bother the horse much. Of course, it goes without saying that if you have a tag they are no where to be found.

    Montana, There ought to be open season and no limit on those suckers. I wish you would keep them home. They have come down into central Oregon now and the tree huggers think it is oh so wonderful. OR7 has made it down to the central valley of California and has been seen cavorting with coyotes. A friend of mine in Idaho got five tags this year but hasn't seen any wolves. Of course, in Oregon they are protected. We can hunt wild pigs with a bazooka though. I have put threaded ice calks and ice nails in shoes. I think borium works about the best but it is a pain in the patute to apply. You never finished your story. After you thoroughly educated your bucking horse were the girls impressed?

    Yes we do have country music, and I own a horse that qualifies me as a little crazy and on reflection perhaps that is the real reason Stella would not get in the float, did not like my rendition achey breaky heart.

    Is there other music besides country???? Never heard of such a thing. Eliduc we got so many wolfs here its crazy. The original plan was 300 wolfs. That's thirty packs they figure. 6years ago I read where between idaho and montana we now had 4000 . Seems when they havent been around for so long that when reintroduced that they do very well on the dumb animals that havent seen a wolf in many decades. So our deer herds in certain places are gone. And rapidly decreasing in most areas here now. Elk are dwndling . So pretty soon wont have any hunting but wolf hunting.. when I was coming out of the bob marshal wilderness this fall my horse was bleeding so bad that a pack of wolfs started sniffing out trail out and when I got to dropping out of grizzly basin they started howling up a storm at us.guess for us getting away. Kinda makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck when that happens. Or running face toface with a grizzly. One time when I was hunting a grizzly hunter back when it was legal. We got on the tracks of a biggun and stoped tied up the horses. And I started taking my boots off putting on tenis shoes. Myclient started laughing at me and asked do I really think I can out run a grizzly that's mad?? My reply was only .. I don't need to out run a grizzly.. just have to out run you.. ride safe everyone

    Well..the girls were super impressed till he got better at bucking then I did riding him. Then it was some what embarrassing. Never a good day when a very pretty girl watches you slowly stand up brushing dirt out of your hair and teeth as your horse goes bucking back towards home.. just saying.

    Love the pics, & the stories-keep 'em coming!
    Stan-sorry to hear that your wife got bucked off,how is she doing? I hope you can get Bugs out some more. Are you still planning on selling Stella?

    MC-do you need tags to hunt when they are after livestock? I was never one to think that putting predators back in an area where people are living/farming was a good idea. So sorry to hear about the depletion of the deer & elk also.

    Land owners can get a predidation permit for removing a certain amount of wolfs. If there feeding on stock. They don't consider dog and cats part of that so you do need a wolf tag for helping those ones find a better feeding ground. In my travels and talking to other outfitters and hunters the general attitude is we are going to not have a hunting season at some point. That the wolfs will over hunt the deer and elk population till its closed for us two legged predators . But that's just older not to bright people ideas. Lol. Ride safe everyone. And yes keep the pictures and stories going. Or ill be forced to share more of mine. Lol. Next?
