1st pic is quitting time tonight.
Usually it's a bit strong.
Had steaks for dinner tonight. Yum yum !
Gave 1 ham hip and part of the back / full quarter, to our neighbor. They super appreciated it.
Odd how some people turn up their nose to caribou. It's Really good if done right. And Not in the rut!
For right now its a choice between Insulation or roofing. Insulation wins at this time of year!
Lots of work....looking good....
You need a crew to throw the roof sheathing up and the shingle bundles. Or are you going with a metal roof?
Weelllll, that's going to be kinda different.
House wrap will go onto of the rafters. Peak to eave. Stapled tight to the blocking.
Then 2x2s get spiked on top of each rafter.Then the roof deck. OSB for now. Then the felt. I'm going to do a layer of regular 15 lb felt/ tar paper then a layer of the new synthetic felt paper. Plastic cap stapled tight. Then let the snow cover it for the winter. Same snow will be on there For at least 6 months . It gives a continuous 1 1/2" vent between the insulation and the roof deck. NO ICE DAMS!! And allows any moisture that gets in the insulation dry up into th vented space.
Just going to need good squirrel screens in the soffit box.
Quitting time tonight.
Very nice Glen, glad to see you're having some fun!
It was Fun ! I was so excited I made a little bit of a mess of gutting it. Not bad , but usually I do a nice job of it. I haven't been that excited on getting meat on the ground in Years!
How did the 338 jolt your shoulder?....i think i just flinched...
Happy thing. As I haven't been shooting at all to speak of for 2 yearsish. Not the Creed, or much of anything.
So my recoil log switched back to my younger days when the 338s were the littlest rounds I hunted and shot. I've run over 2,000 rounds thru my current 458. And close to that many thru all my previous 458s . Not sure how many thru all the 416s I've had and hunted. But prolly similar # of rounds. Same with the 375 . and as this is my 12th 338 win mag. Used to be all I did was Fall timber, thin trees,and shoot . And the smallest cart I shot was 338 Winchester.
When I checked the zero on the Kimber. I was amazed at how little it recoiled compared to what I remembered.
My left shoulder/ arm is improving all the time. But still not like it used to be. But that is one place where it being around 7 lbs helps me. But I'm still out of practice. And am spoiled by the trigger on my Creed.
All in all , its great!
Congrats, I've had moose but not caribou, let us know how what it tastes like..
The moose was like very lean beef - almost needed some help flavor-wise, no gamish taint.
Alot depends on how quick it was killed and how well it was taken care of. But yes it's very lean
Congrats Glen!I think so. 2 bou and a moose will get ya thru the year.
Never had Caribou meat are they as tasty as moose?
