In Canada in general actually.. Personally, I don't like the deep wilderness myself - a good friend of my wife got actually eaten by bears in Algonquin near Ottawa some years ago.. It's altogether freaky weird when you start to think about the idea that to bears (sharks, cougars, timber wolves, etc.) we chimps are all just legitimate game in the right circumstances.. I was surprised when the moose pride and they didn't run off.. We came up on them slowly, they sort of made room to get through, we passed in a orderly and non-threating manner and they took up their spots as we drove on.. I thought about giving them a toot on the horn - but then thought the best of it.. They are not smart animals - so I think it saw us to be just weird noisy shorter woodland creature passing it by through the forest.. Perhaps it was that swoopy 8V 900 rear end.. Anyway, I took it all to be a - 'don't freak me out - I won't have to kick your ass' - mankind / group of huge malodorous heavy things with big horns - type of exchange.. I'm not a hunter myself, I figure I have all the high end meat I need and the good lord would view me going out snuffing animals as greedy and smote my ABS controller for being needlessly shitty to one of his bigger 'thangs.. However I had an uncle on the Miramichi who would feed his family all winter on a moose.. All very trendy and manly now - but for him and his it was put a big one in the freezer or go hungry in march - which I can respect.. -- J Dexter - webmaster - http://www.dexterdyne.org/ all tunes - no cookies no subscription no weather no ads no news no phone in - all the time Radio Free Dexterdyne Top Tune o'be-do-da-day Brian Setzer Orchestra - Jump Jive Wail http://www.dexterdyne.org/888/019.RAM
