Long Ridge Camp Scenes 2012

Three great camps were held at Long Ridge this year, all during firearms season. In all, eight hunters took deer (not all here), moose, grouse,turkeys and pheasant. No luck on elk for our lone western hunter this year. Below hunters chat and have cocktails before dinner.

 Gear stowed and bunks ready below...

 Many of these hunters only link up once a year at camp. There is much catching up to do and plans to make.

Below you see the grill packed to the edges with moose steaks. Grilled with a delicious coating, and then covered with sauce when served, they were delicious! Add baked potatoes, and a big salad, and it was four star. Don't forget a perfect red made this even better!

 After supper stories.
 This fire burns non-stop from Friday noon until Sunday dark each weekend. 
 Below is the current bulletin board in camp of most (not all) deer, moose and other successful hunts this fall. It has been a great season.
 A picture I took of the full moon from camp.
 Below is the last day this hunter and I could hunt this season. Joe took this doe at 30 yards while still hunting with his bow. Down below Walker's field, in stuff so thick we had to cut a path in and out to drag her to the rigs. I had no luck this day, and finished the season with one deer.
 Another evening's repast.
Three weeks now it has been over, and I can hardly believe it!
I'll follow up with some more of the seasons pictures!
