    Or so the saying goes. Winter is close!
    Frost anytime now.
    Made it a week or more longer than last year. :)

    Dave, we can expect frost most anytime in late September here. Yes, it is getting close and the leaf color is really showing in places. However, I really don't expect a good color this year because of the weather we've had. We'll see soon.

    Had a lite frost last night at my house. Fell asleep on the couch when I got home from work at around 6. Woke up around 2AM. Went outside to let the dog out and go feed the ducks and the grass was quite crunchy with ice.

    That's a poor time to be out feeding the duck Nate. Nights are for sleeping.

    Yep, was out hunting with a buddy, Kuskokwim area.
    Saw a few moose, a few bear, never got close.
    Saw some huge bulls from the plane but a long way from camp.
    Had a great "Camping with guns" trip. Beautiful country.
    Headed out again next week.
    Called one close to camp but he was only about 44", 2 brow tines, there 50", 4 brow tines. Pic of him at 300 yards, I was sitting by the fire :)
    (camera zoom froze) little brown spot in the pic, middle top near the tree line.

    Flying in, knew it was going to be cold:

    Moose are just starting to respond to calling. "here mossey here moosey" :)

    It was so cold my wet boots froze & I had to thaw them out before I could put them on.
    Warmed up to 60s on sunny days & 40s on cloudy days

    Frosted good here while I was gone. Garden done, potatoes & carrots to get in yet.

    For next year, right? Do you start carrots and potatoes in the fall? Is this in the greenhouse?

    Called one in close enough to put in the freezer.
    It just wasn't big enough, rule where i was is 4 brow tines or 50" ( this one, 3 brow tines about 44" )
    We made eye contact though, (zoom 300 yards is fuzzy):

    Today is the last day of moose season here.
    I guess I'll be "Mooseless in Wasilla" this year.

    I don't think you'll be the only one . . . last I knew my sister and brother-in-law had not got their moose either, but on the flip side they did bag a lot of ducks.
