Hi, I like to fish, hunt and camp and work on my truck and boat and gear. I like to fish the local lakes but go as far as Kamloops to go fishing. Just got back from an unsuccessful deer hunting trip and pooched the tranny in my Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 but its getting fixed right now. Got rid of my camper too tough on gas and back to sleeping in the back of the truck with a canopy. Have a motorhome for those comfort fishing trips though so its all good. I live in White Rock, BC.

I will be looking to buy a Suzuki Samurai soon, to be used for hunting trips in the backcountry near Kamloops, area 3:29

Thanks for the reply harvester_sorrow. For all you hunters out there, I own and actively use at the range and for hunting 6 rifles and 2 shotguns. I also own 2 handguns but they only see range time by law. They never go into the bush, never. I took a shot at a muley buck but the shot was too tough through the small trees and he bolted but quick but I tried anyway. I was using my scoped 1945 Lee Enfield sporter with 180 grain Remington Core-Lokts. Harvested 2 blue grouse with the Mossberg 500a 12 guage. We all had a real good time, spent 4 days up there and it was cold at night with a little rain and some sun but mostly cloudy. We were in the Savona area near Red Lake if anyone knows where that is. Just full of does up there with a smattering of bucks. One hunting party bagged 4 bucks, 3 spikes and one 4x4 buck. Those deer are really big up there, very well fed I guess. One black bear was all we saw but we saw a lot of bear paw prints in the mud the first day we arrived. There are wolves up there too, the tracks told us so.

Hi Geezer....welcome to Funinbc


10-12-2011, 08:49 PM
geezer eh that describes a good 75% of us round here lol. welcome . ive had suzi's and thats perfect for yer hunting. basicly a quad with a heater and doors eh.

10-12-2011, 09:00 PM
Thats' right Trailjunkie. A heater when it is raining or when you are wet or cold really helps a lot. When you get over 50 your body doesn't handle the weather as easily as it used to. Wipers are good too, especially in our wet coast weather. Another thing too is if you go right into the trees any deadfalls hit the hard roof instead of your head. Thanks for the warm welcomes guys! I am looking forward to talking to you all as I have a bunch of stories as do you all. One thing, stay away from those Texas mickey vodka parties in the bush, they HURT!!! LOL

10-13-2011, 09:55 AM
Crazycooter, my Dodge is in the shop getting a new automatic transmission, a snap ring broke in the overdrive gear cluster and travelled around inside the case and wiped out 1st gear. Ever had a tranny problem with yours'???

10-13-2011, 10:01 AM
Hey Geezer here are two links that can help with posting pictures. If you need any further help let me know

Tinker Belle, I used to live in Mission, on the west side near the 14th pub. Moved out of there last summer.

Hopefully this picture works, I think I have figured out how to upload pictures....

The 17" rims are EON's and the tires are BFG All-terrains P255/75r-17's 10 ply E-rated with valve stem protectors and bead protectors. Everything else is stock. It sees double duty on-off road but mostly gravel logging roads. Like I said in an earlier post, I want a Sami for the bush and a trailer to tow it there with. The camper is gone bye-bye this week, just too heavy for the 1/2 ton. I have a motorhome for the easy fishing area campsites. This truck has been to Saskatchewan and back twice with visits to lakes in between the 3 provinces and so far I have had no trouble except for now a new transmission is being installed as mentoined in an earlier post.

That's funny that's my favorite beer store. I love points on beer purchases. I grew up out there in surrey parents are still there ( in white rock) , but I love mission.

10-13-2011, 01:05 PM
The points system there are how I always get my Canucks ball caps LOL! I owned a house on Bobcat Drive West. Cyanide...he lived there too LOL! We are related. I have many friends in Mission and I get out there at least once a week and stay overnight or a day or 3. I never buy beer from the 'big B' anymore, not cold enough. Best beer store is the Springs walk-in beer area, cold as the arctic in there, great place to hang out after a hot day at Mission Raceway Park watching and sometimes participating at the drags

10-13-2011, 01:19 PM
Oh, OK, never mind, it just clicked on LOL.

10-13-2011, 04:52 PM
:welcome: Geezer that is a great area to hunt.

10-13-2011, 05:14 PM
The other hunters up there called it the glory hole of deer hunting. There are migration trails all over the place and I followed a few of the game trails and there were deer prints, bear prints, moose crap and wolf scat too. The place is rife with wild life! Ragin, I take it you have been up there hunting before? I know I will be calling that area my hunting destination from now on. Hell, its only about 5 hours from my house, I fuel up in Savona and bango, I am there, set up camp and go hunting. It doesn't get much better than that and the amount of firewood there is phenominal! I brought my Stihl MS290 chainsaw and we used it to buck up a tree that was blocking the road about 15 minutes from the deer camp and when we got there there was a HUGE fallen spruce right beside the camp and it provided many huge campfires for us, dry and crackly fires. We have an outhouse there and 4 meat hanging racks too. I just love it up there!!!
