  1. Somewhere Deep in the West Canada Lakes Wilderness Somewhere Deep in the West Canada Lakes Wilderness: We spent a total of 28 days at hunting camp, coming out 3 times for supplies and a well needed break from hunting. We broke camp the day before Thanksgiving in anticipation of heavy snow which would have made our departure somewhat difficult...and we were beat. The season started off slow with mild temperatures. Lots of sign but not much for movement during the day... About 10 days into the season we got hammered with a foot of snow and ice... We thought for sure that this was the b
  2. "The Shot".... Somewhere deep in the West Canada Lakes Wilderness I'm in a blizzard, a whiteout, about 14" of snow on the ground, already exhausted from still hunting all morning... the snow is literally flying sideways... Breaking camp tomorrow..... "PRESSURE" Visibility piss poor.... I've been camped in the backcountry 26 days now without a shot. I see the rack, and he see's me... Lock on, engage... "BOOM"...... I hit a tree directly in front of the deer which was about 5" in diameter... the tree "exploded" and fell, cut in half. The buck took off and I couldn't

  5. Been hunting the deep backcountry of the Adirondacks over 50 years. Hunted the Siamese Ponds Wilderness region for about 35 years until access just got to be too much because of frozen lake, etc... We now hunt the West Canada Lakes Wilderness region, primarily the Jessup River Wild Forest... We use a canvass 12x14 elk tent with 5' walls and a 9' center height. The wood stove keeps the tent like toast... Our base camp is 13 miles in the backcountry... We access it via a single lane logging road (4x4 a must have) that brings you through some of the most pristine wilderness you'll ever see... It'
  6. There's "NO COST" associated with this inquiry... As my post indicates, we hunt on state land out of an elk tent... We're just looking for 1 or 2 more "serious hunters with good navigational skills" to keep the camp alive. If you were accepted, your only obligation is to help set up and brake down the camp.. We usually do a 3 day "work weekend" at the beginning of the season that involves setting up camp and gathering firewood for the whole season. Cutting, transporting, splitting and stacking of the firewood is the extent of the heavy work involved... which means you've got to be in fairly
