    Tough winter in 59 as well. We've been out packing trails with the snowmobile through the cedars but noticed an abundance of coyote tracks since we started doing that. I hope we're not doing more harm than good making it easier for the coyotes to get around! I wonder if the Ministry or OFAH monitor the severity and will suggest emergency feeding programs.

    I am and will continue to be a strong supporter of the OFAH, but after seeing what the winters have done to the herd and no emergency feeding occured, I honestly don't know what it would take to trigger the DeerSave Program.

    There was a piece on this a week ago on the telly about this and it was to do with I believe the Jasper National Park remote area,s where they have banned both
    snow shoeing and cross country skiing in order to prevent wolves taking to the packed trails in pursuit of the last remaining Caribou, I think there are only 4 Caribou left in that area, featured in that story.But the wolves and I guess coyotes will naturally take advantage of the easier travel on these paths.

    I was in Restoule 2 weekends ago and could not believe how deep the snow was. Almost impossible to move around in the bush.
