The subject about says it all. Been in the North all my life. Moose and Caribou are the bush meat of choice up here...will post some pictures when I figure out how. Heavy bear, wolf and cat (bob and lynx) population here as well. If you like wild chicken (ptarmigan and grouse) and are handy with a 22 you can stock your camp for a year in a couple of days. Fishing is excellent always..lake trout, speckled and brook trout, northern pike, walleye, burbot, perch, sturgeon etc...never a boring moment.
30-06 is the long gun of choice up here. Side arms are illegal but the SW 357 mag is a popular site on a lot of hips in the bush..The climate is extreme in the winter but not so bad in the summer..We build ice roads in the winter to get around..lots of boat travel in the summer.. Thats a little about where I hang my hat...

Up north seems nice

Are mosquitos as bad there as they are in Alaska? That's my biggest reason for getting stationed in Arizona. Well, that and 20 below in October with an average low of 65 below in the winter. On second thought, there are a bunch of reasons I chose Arizona. I'm going to get a coat. I'm getting cold thinking about it.
