What do you hunt there - deer? What do you do with it?

I wish we got those half circle blocks here in SA (your fire pit) - so cool.

What a life man. You can be very proud of yourself for everything you have achieved over there.

All the best!

Thanks TeeJay.
We can hunt black bear, moose, elk and whitetail deer. We have very strict regulations as all wildlife belongs to the Crown and it is very well enforced.
The whitetail tastes very “wild” . We grind most of it up and make russians. Except the backstraps and fillets. Sliced thin, coated in a breaded mix and pan fried in butter tastes delicious.
From the elk and moose we cut some steaks and roasts, and the rest mince meat (or as the Canadians call it, hamburger)

Nice - and the black bear - is that just to protect yourself?  :imaposer:

If I have to....but they can actually kill a lot of young calves in the spring after they wake up from hibernation.

Got to love first word countries. Rain or shine, the bus will pick up and drop off, no matter where you live. Except when it’s -40C. Buses don’t run when it’s that cold. Not sure why they drew the line there. On second thought, if they drew the line at -35C the buses wouldn’t run all of January and February  :lol8:

Wow - that's service hey.

Here in the Western Cape school children are being abducted (lots) in recent weeks. They spoke about the American yellow school bus system on the radio last week.

Those cows sorted that bear out hey  :thumleft:

I remember the old yellow schoolbusses from my youth, the system was reliable!
If our bus broke down, our driver used to cart us to school in his Ford Fairmont V8!
Lovely setup you have there. :thumleft:

WOW! - very nice - you are living in paradise. Did you build the main house from scratch or was it a structure? Is the hunting cottage in the pic (the 3rd structure on the right hand side) or is that somewhere else?

So the school bus comes right to your place.

How long does it take to drive to work?

Apologies for all the questions  ;)

Main structure was there. We just added to it and put a new roof on it. Also built the garage (with the green roof. Will put tin on it next year to match the house)
The hunting cabin is hidden in the trees in pic no 1 of the 2nd batch I posted.
The 3rd structure  (i think) you are talking about is an old shed that I am hoping to burn down once it starts snowing.
The school bus come right to our door. We are 16 km from town, and I am 23 km from work. Takes me about 25 min to get to work.

Goeie vraag ChrisL. As jy in daai rye bome loop is daar baie hope sokker bal size klippe. Miskien het die oorspronklike “homesteader” die die klippe in rye gepak toe hy die grond bewerk het met die doel om dit later op te tel. Hy het nie daai doel bereik nie..... ek dink die klippe was n goeie vatplek vir die bome om te groei

Had 2 inches of rain in the last 4 days, and then came home to this. It usually only snows end of October. Very strange weather!



And some more rain and snow to come

Pragtige omgewing daai Immigrant. Ek neem aan dis 'n speelbaan vir die fietse daai en nie 'n drafbaan nie? ;D  Bring al daai bome vir jou 'n inkomste?  Hoe lank van plant na sny?

En dan die groot vraag: watter hommeltuig het jy gekoop?  :deal: :ricky:
