Paquette's Camp update Feb. 4th, 2012

It is hard to tell wether it is winter or turning spring here from day to day the weather has been so iratic. It has gone from -33 degrees one morning to above freezing and rain the next day, and continues to go back and forth, there is enough snow that the lake levels whould be good in the spring. We are starting to look forward to spring but would like to get at least a month of real winter before it gets here. Ice is usually off the lake about the first week of May, with the mild winter we will see when it goes this year.

I am still doing some trapping and having fairly good luck between snowmobile breakdowns, up and running again today after the latest breakdown, I blew the chaincase the other day and had to walk back home.

It is quiet here as per usual in the winter, we do have a lot af birds to watch and have been seeing quite a few Wolves going across the lake, but none in close enouogh to worry about the dogs.

We hope that everyone is settled into the New Year and doing well.

Paquette's Camp

Winter wonderland

this is one of the the areas we were snowshoeing thru the other day, another 1/2 mile we will be to the lake.

Yes they can get stuck

We are having enough winter for a snowmobile to get stuck ocassionally.

Winter feeding

The winter has been back and forth with weather, but it has brought lots of birds in. At times we have 100,s at the feeder at one time.

Finally some time for ice fishing

Sue and I finally got a chance for some fishing, the day was quite mmild and the fish were biting well.

Actually we had all the fish we wanted in the first 15 minutes.
