IDK - There were more moose back then I guess but I'm still at a loss as to explain how a skeleton this intact was essentially 'left standing' on ribs (like this pic) for us to find. The legs were scattered about as normal but this 'find' was just plain weird.

Just a guess, but I don't think that moose was killed by a predator. The bones would have been scattered more at least that's the way deer I've seen killed by coyotes were.

  I'd wager it might have been wounded by a wolf pack and wandered off to die in the bush. Small critters ate the remains but they couldn't move the skeleton. Maybe died of natural causes as well.

Animals will go off to die in the thick bush because being prey animals their instinct is to hide if they can't flee.

I'm guessing a pack of scouts used it as the frame to practice their survival shelters....when they earned their badge, they adhered to their LNT training....except for leaving the frame of bones, of course.....  Cool

I've come across deer carcasses killed by wolves with largely intact skeletons. I've also seen them scattered. Not sure why one or the other.

Today's throwback Turtle walker pic cracked me up Grin Grin

  That looks like an Army surplus raincoat he's sporting on his walk?

I ran into 2 couples at the BH portage who had got in late the night before and ended up camping in the parking lot.

  We all ended up at the water about the same time.
  They had never been on a week-long trip and never
  in the Q or Canada for that matter.

  When they saw me solo they asked if I would show them the best way to get down the Jean lk.

  I was headed that way as I often do so I showed them the route, marked some campsites because I knew they wouldn't make it in one day.

I laid out their map orientating it in the direction of travel. I also marked their route with N/S/E/W cross like I do my own maps for quick reference.

  The 2 gals seemed a little confused when I was talking you head East down Quetico then South to Jean?

  One of the husbands said they didn't understand compass directions, they only went by Right/Left!  Roll Eyes Grin Grin

I said that only works if your going in the right direction. He laughed and said his wife was reading the map as they drove from Sault St Marie. The whole time she had it upside down.

Didn't matter much when they were driving along Superior but when they turned inland at Thunder Bay things got really interesting until they stopped and got the map orientated in the right direction.

The other guy wasn't saying much about the map reading. Turns out he was a Left/Right person as well.

I'm loving your throwback PODS db  Smiley

  I think it would be fun if everyone sent in a throwback canoe trip pic showing their younger self.

I did most if not all the picture taking when I went with other people but I do have one good one I'll try and copy and submit.

I think people would get a kick out of seeing everyone back in the day.

Anyone else?

Today's POD would do well in a classy black & white art gallery dedicated to the North Woods.  I really like this one!

Jimbo  Cool

Immediately, I'm thinking Ansel Adams.  Very nice.
