Re: My First Bear Hunt = Success!!

Absolutely! Every spring we put one or two in the freezer. Fresh out of the den, feeding on grass and roaming the beaches of Prince William Sound, heck yea. Not a lot of meat on a bear, suprisingly. Suppose you haven't tasted mountain lion either........ BK, I guess I've led a sheltered life .........

Re: My First Bear Hunt = Success!!

Congrats on a beautiful bear. Did you measure it, tip to tial and front paw to opposite front paw to get a squared measurement, just curious?
Getting it rugged?
What are you making from the meat? Bacon burger is excellent as is most types of sausage.

Re: SBC 350 with overheating issues

I use the valve like yours to burb air out of my system. Run it till she starts to warm up, crack the valve open till antifreeze exits. Shut the valve and keep an eye on the temps. Repeat as necesary.
Also helps if the thermostat has a small hole drilled in it as mentioned earlier.

Re: New power plant help

Dave, Do you offer the same warranty as MAS, I believe they are 2 yrs, unlimited hours? Our boating season in Ak is rather short compared to most. Typically starts in April and ends after moose season, end of Sept for many. Most only get about 20 to 30 hrs a year if they run them often. Thus, 2 year...

Re: Canning meats ....

Either raw pack or smoke it first, then stuff in jars and can at 10psi for 90 mins. The canning process kills any bacteria. Makes room in the freezer and is easier/cheaper to ship to family and friends. Plus it stores much longer in jars. Everything is ready to eat when its opened. Often we'll pack ...

Canning is still very popular up here.....in Ak.
Put away cases of halibut, smoked salmon, and veggies so far this year.
Still have blacktail and moose in jars from previous years but will stack up more asa soon as we get our moose for the year......hopefully soon!

Re: bear hunting

Pic is not a bear track......no claw marks across the toes and it would be two front feet stepping on each other in the pic, neither is a hind foot.
Good luck on the hunt. They are delicious here as long as its not a fish eater.

No bou in unit 16. Moose area is hunted hard by guys with cabins all along the river system. Its also flat terrain with antler restrictions meaning you can call them in and might have a second or couple seconds to determine if he's legal. Very tough hunting area even for a resident.

We routinely carry 100+ gall of fuel, camp (tent, food, cots, bags, cooking eq., water, etc...), and critters in the boat....in excess of 2000#'s and it fits nicely under the cab.
