A Beer?

Posted by on Friday, February 24, 2012 at 7:59 am

Only in Wisconsin.  I don’t know what goes on in the woods there but I saw this animal wandering around at the sport show in Wausau.

I guess it can be called a “beer”.  I’m thinking that after too many beers this might be a common sight.

Water and Cats

Posted by on Saturday, June 18, 2011 at 5:44 am

We’ve heard that cats don’t like water. I don’t believe it. We had house cats years ago. Sometimes when I was on the dock they would come out and ask me to help them go for swim. With enough of a launch they could manage a double twist with a full flip and still enter feet first. They didn’t seem ...read more.

Ready for Winter

I came across this bruin the other day.  Or should I say he came across me while I was out enjoying the afternoon.  My vehicle was a good 300 yards away.  For a moment I wondered if I could run faster scared than he could hungry.

No worries however since either he wasn’t hungry or I didn’t look ...read more.

Loons are most likely seen out in the water fishing.  Sometimes they are spotted in the air and rarely on land.   This guy is hiding near the waters edge. 

It really pays to have your camera ready and your eyes peeled for these types of interesting shots.

Moose on the loose

Posted by on Tuesday, August 25, 2009 at 7:00 am


I have mentioned about how moose re-grow their antlers each summer.  Moose will drop or loose their antlers during the winter.  Sometimes a sharp eye will spot the cast-off antlers on the shore or inland from the lake.  These make interesting souvenirs. 

These ones where likely dropped last winter and as is often the case, both sides ...read more.

Flindt Caretaker?

Posted by on Sunday, August 23, 2009 at 6:53 am


We are not sure of his name.  He answers to Ralph, Pete, Woody, and “here Boy”.  What ever his handle he greets many guests at Flindt Lake

The wildlife viewing and photo ops are amazing at our remote lakes.  Fishing is always great; catching is an added bonus and seeing animals in their own environment is priceless. ...read more.

Home Sweet Home

Everybody has to live somewhere. If your address is Metionga Lake Northwestern Ontario, your home may look like this.


Eagles take a lot of pride in their abodes. Nothing like a penthouse suite with a view.

This Metionga Lake moose has growing antlers that are still covered in velvet.  In a matter of weeks, the moose will rub the velvet off and prepare for the mating season.


Moose are great swimmers so it is not uncommon to see them in the water.
