Weekend Works

Kurt and I went hunting on South Douglas. Jeff dropped us off on the Stephens Passage side, and we hiked over the low ridge to the Gastineau Channel side. Jeff went fishing after he dropped us off and got a king salmon. Nice. Kurt and I didn’t see a deer. Most of the sign was on the top. Still leaves on the blueberry bushes but they are yellow and falling fast. When I got home, I continued getting ready for moose hunting. I was going to bake some pies and had been having trouble with the crust never really baking, so I tried to bake the bottom crust first. I baked it for about 25 minutes, and it baked up nice. I added blueberry filling to one and salmon berry filling to the other. Put on a raw crust top. Baked for another 50 minutes. Looked good. We’ll see how they taste at moose camp. My coworker told me about making a can call, so I’ll try to make one this week before we go. Punch a hole in the bottom of a coffee can, drill a hole in the bottom, then put in a string with a knot on the inside of the can. Then pull on the string to make a cow or bull call.
