Gabriel:

Seal hunting in this way is very boring no question, however it is the traditional way. No the equipment isn't borrowed it does belong to my wife I made it as a christmas gift for her years ago. The spearhead is in the first shot it's called a "sakku" made of brass with a steel blade.

I have the same GPS and like it very much in the cold weather keep it on the inside of your clothing near your skin keeps those batteries warm.

I'm located at 62 49 04 N (deg min sec) 92 05 33 W (deg min sec)

I hope in the next one there will be no snow....said with fingers crossed.

Isn't it strange almost the same latitude but you get the influence of the unfrozen ocean currents while I get the influence of the frozen solid Hudson Bay so here I am still suffering from the winter blues and your sitting on your patio deck sipping on a cold one. At this very moment its minus six degrees C with light snow flurries.

Not to fear spring will arrive as will the wild swans and geese. I'm hoping to film some this weekend. I took tomorrow off so will spend a long weekend out on the land with camera in hand.

Thanks Dale:

As per your entry I only wish I had the great shots of wildlife to show everyone.

Susan and I will be out the door early tomorrow morning....I only hope the swans are here to visit. This will be my last weekend before the big melt. I leave for meetings in Winnipeg and Toronto and won't be home for two weeks. By then the slush and bare ground will make it impossible to travel on the land by skidoo. We'll have to wait for things to dry up then we can travel by ATV.

When are you coming to visit????

Brian

I also enjoyed your film and the way you told the story. Excellent job, so good in fact I'm sending you an email asking your permission to screen you entry for the Concho Valley Photography Club at our June meeting.

Starting to get hot here finally so we could use a look at your snow and ice.

email asking this favor coming your way.

Brian,

Well, I do not think this summer is a go. Decided to not retire till next June (want to buy an xlh1 before I pull the pin.)
My wife wants to get her float plane license which may also get in the way but I think I could talk her into waiting on that one. (We'd then have to buy a float plane to fly up, don't think that would happen for a while).
this summer we will be flying into lake athabaska doing a video promo for a company, but part of the deal is they got to leave me on the dunes for a week to film falcons.
Heck I gotta pull the pin to get all this stuff done!!

work gets in the way of having fun!! eh?
