Re: What makes a good hunting ground?
Art, I always find places the moose & game just tend to congregate at; like mineral licks. One can make their own with salt and other minerals but the natural ones that have been used for many years are the best. Near water too, they always want near water come the rut.
Hungarian are ya? My wife, her people came from Hungary (place called forro, near Budapest) pre WWI. Entire extended families came over to work the coal mines in Pennsylvania. Their big plan was to save money, go back to Hungary and buy farms. Most just got married and became proper Americans, ha ha. A few of her relatives/ancestors did save their money, went back to Hungary after WW1 (around 1921) and their grandkids still live in Hungary. But they had a thing called Communism that fouled it all up for a good many years. Funny thing is my wife's people here in USA are all Catholic, go to church everyday if they can. Well the Russkies tore down the churches in Hungary I figure, so several generations of wife's relatives who don't believe in God; imagine that? So anyway, when the grandkids in Hungary started searching for their spirituality, who do ya think was there to pick up the pieces? The MOONIES, no joke. My wife's relatives in Hungary are now Moonies, not Catholic, unreal. We email back and forth, they all (her relatives) in Hungary look like my wife's people and all, family name is Zsolcsak. All they talk about is universal world peace, ya right, not in the cards I tell them, ha ha. But they good people but they don't hunt. Even my wife killed a moose this year. Funny Thing is all the wife's people in USA & Hungary are all quite successful, college educated, ect; GOOD HUNKIE GENETICS & BLOODLINES I tell everybody. BUT the ones in America are still better off and I can't imagine any better place to hunt than where I call home here in ALaska.
Hope you enjoyed my family story.
Something else, I've been married to this great Hunkie Wife for 26 years and they've been good years, and she's a good cook. AND I JUST LUV PAPRIKA heavy on everything. The wife makes Halupki every month, sitek, blood soup with homemade noodles and of the bone marrow it's so good. At Christmas, she makes all the Hunkie holiday food and bakes like nuts, I gain 30 lbs and live like a God of sorts. I'd marry that Hunkie wife all over again. You should hook up your sisters with some of the hunters on this site, then you could come hunting in the USA all the time.
You Hungarians are a good bunch, keep up the good work.
