Beautiful country! I need to get there someday.
I can't imagine running a trapline there. It sure would be a learning experience, not to mention a hell of a work out!
You could always pack up a fly rod and hit the rivers for some fishing. I never got a chance to do that but would like to someday. If you do that though might I suggest August through October .
Spring and the early part of summer is a waste due to the overflowing very fast moving white waters of the snow melt. Great time for kyakers and white water rafters but I don't think the fishing is all that great in the rivers . Might be able to hit some lakes during that time frame and do pretty well though.
No matter the time of year you go there is always something fun outdoors to get into. Life out there is nowhere near the hustle and bustle it is here. If you go during the spring and summer just make sure to watch out for the rattle snakes...there sneaky lmao.
Oh yeah, one last thing. If you go during the winter and early spring, try not TOO laugh TOO hard at the big wooly beasts standing in the ranchers pastures lmao. Damn cows with 5-6" long hair all over it's body. Was the damndest thing I had ever seen when I laid eyes on the first one lmao.
He is bad ass!!!!!!
I'm sure you would love to be back there and maybe guiding, but all things happen for a reason. Ohio must have something in store for you.
We will have to talk about that over a beer someday!
