Despite the cold Maine weather we still get out more than most. We have no choice, the animals need to be fed and their is always wood that needs to be brought in from the barn.
As I sit in the warm house I sometimes dread the thought of getting out but after I do I always feel refreshed. Staying cooped up all winter can make you nuts so when ever the opportunity arises we try to embrace the elements.
We took a ride outback with the kids in tow and tried to identify all the tracks that adorned our land. We came up with deer, squirell, fox, rabbit, coyote, and bobcat (maybe) tracks.
The kids ended the day with a pig ride.
And to answer Joanna’s question, we ate every bit of that moose and shared some with friends and family. MM doesn’t just hunt for the sport of it, he hunts to put food on the table. We cherish that Moose’s life and let nothing go to waste. As a matter of fact, when we eat dinner every night my children thank God for whatever animal we may be eating for sacrificing it’s life in order to sustain our own. I know the photo can make you think otherwise but we honestly are not that type of people.
