LOL Brian, No worries. I wasn't getting wound up on the other thread, just trying to present another viewpoint about some of the issues that relate to whaling as well as fish & wildlife management in general.

Hey Prairie tuber I just read the whaling post very interesting info, I had no idea 300,000 whales and dolphins are wasted each year from commercial fishing that is very sad, whoever eats commercial fish supports this industry and should think twice before helping to sustain it, I only eat fish I catch myself (arctic char and arctic cod etc...)

Never tried bowhunting but that might be a good way for hunting seals in this area considering so many hunters are out in boats in close proximity firing in different directions, scary at times. Also just noticed your post about hunting geese, yes I really do enjoy hunting geese, usually only get 5 per year but its great fun.

I would be posting some pics of RIBING but my damn throttle lever snapped over the winter and have been waiting two weeks for the part. Those are amazing pics of Lake Winnipeg I would love to bring my RIB down in Sept but the season would be ending soon anyway.

Flies....

Hey Artic,
Buddy of mine was in Iqualuit last week working on a tanker. He reckons that you need a bow and arrow to shoot the flies this time of year!

Hey Alan,

LOL that is totally true about the mosquitoes it's terrible this time of year but in one month they will all freeze up again so I'm looking forward to that. Even with the bug jacket you still get bitten somehow, clouds form over your head and they don't go away. Yeah Woodward’s is our fuel distributor, I had a picture of the first ship (Tuvaq) to arrive in Iqaluit even before the icebreaker but I deleted it, guess it's an ice class tanker. It had to be sent back south because the Shell jet fuel and diesel didn't meet our stringent specs but it was back 1.5 weeks later with another 16 million litres of good fuel, It's definetely a small world. I attached a picture of the place where they moore a few days before they arrived and broke up the ice for us, this was on June 29.

AR, you should feel completely at home when you get to Winnipeg. The mosquito happens to be Manitoba's provincial bird.
