Paquette's Camp update Oct. 10, 2012
It is almost time to wrap up another season, this season brought plenty of good fishing, the Bear hunt went very well with Darrell harvesting the largest Bear at about 250 pounds, (sorry no pictures somehow lost them from my camera). The archery Moose hunt showed no Moose harvested, but quite a few Moose seen. Although everyone was tired from the hunt when they left I beleive everyone enjoyed the hunt. The rifle hunt for Moose is in progress now, the group shot a calf Moose yesterday and are now looking for a Bull and a Cow, good luck boys!
The summer has brought many projects such as a larger office, a new deck on it as well. Many gallons of paint have been applied. Emily has put up a dog kennel and started boarding dogs for people with her first customers last week. Numerous smaller repairs to cabins etc have also been accomplished.
I am trying to get the rest of my projects wrapped up before winter sets in , hope to finish putting new windows and doors in one of the cabins today. Emily will be here for the winter and her cabin needs to be winterised, the majority of the work is done with the bathroom still needing to be finished. The boats and motors are all put away for the winter, except for 1 which I will use right up to freeze up. I will need to get the water drained for the winter or I will have frozen water by the end of the week.
It is also time to start planning projects for next year and we will be meeting to start those plans soon.
I will be into the trapping season next week and need to get everything around for that so that I can spend some cold days out in the boat.
I also hope to make a trip to the states to visit family and friends the end of November.
Wishing everyone well
