I’m glad to see you guys posting. Nice pics. Sure wish our countries were friendly so we could cross back and forth. I see some Canadian plates in the oil fields. Sure be good if you could get some customers up there.

This guy will have a unique rack in a couple of years...

*** we are into our second week of the hunt. All clients so far from Eastern and Southern Ontario. One of the groups were 12 Pakistani Canadians from Toronto. All were Doe hunting on Crown Land. We have Trophy hunters right now from Timmins and the Kap, hunting our private lands.

Spike.....I haven't been following what JT has been doing with the virus lately. Looking at this headline from yesterday, it seems closing the border wasn't the answer to stopping the virus. It reads as you guys (the govt) will be shutting down or reducing the hours of some things in different areas. Looking at the reader comments for each area.....a bit of finger pointing going on by the locals. Hopefully one day the border will open and folks can come up to hunt.

From: spike buck

JT blames the provinces. The provinces blame JT. Manitoba is completely shut down as of today. We were able to successfully run a deer hunt the last few weeks with folks who live in what's called "The Hot Spot for Covid". The Toronto area.

They visited local stores etc. and so far no one who visited us or locals came down with the virus.

What pissed me off was Doug Ford told camps in the North west to take domestic tourists.... then says no one should travel in Ontario. So, we almost didn't get a deer hunt but sqeaked through successfully. We still have Domestic tourists this week in camp spending much needed tourist dollars in the area stores. Doug Ford doesn't know what he is doing!!

Beautiful pics of Confusion Lake. We did several fly in fishing trips with Wilderness Air back in the 70s, when Robbie Robinson ran it.

The Lynx come in to the baited sites to catch the squirrels feeding on baits...

Have you tried predator calls for the lynx, Chris?

From: ahawkeye

Are lynx bigger than bobcat? I'd love a full body mount. I don't have a bobcat either but both would be cool.

From: spike buck

Troy I have not tried predator calls. Here, only trappers can take a Lynx. Lynx are quite big here because the trappers have a low quota. They live to a ripe old age. They are bigger than Bobcats... Thanks Dave.

Troy. Robbie Robinson still lives next door to Wilderness Air. Still fly's his private float plane. Has a trapline just north of here. Gotta be in his late 70's.

From: t-roy

I figured he was pushing 80. He flew us in to Solitary Lake several years. I went for the first time in ‘78 or ‘79. We caught 100’s of northern my first trip up. They were stacked at the mouth of the river/stream, feeding on suckers (I think). It was a literally an “every cast” type of trip!

Do you also have bobcats in your area, or only lynx? Your pics of the cats on November 13th look very similar to a bobcat.

From: spike buck
28-Nov-20
It does have the coloring of a Bobcat. 2nd pic. We don't have many Bobcats here. Troy...
