Good things come to those who wait – Part II
Well, today Dale suggested I take Hendrik and Kathrin out to find some Buffalo. We have been in Yellowknife for 20 years and have only driven the Highway two times and not seen Buffalo. It just so happens both those drives were about 3 weeks ago. Hendrik called and we than decide that we would go for the drive and hope we find Buffalo somewhere. We had driven for about 1 1/2 hours and had turned into a road side turnout for a break before heading back to Yellowknife, we haven’t seen anything. As Dale, Hendrik and Kathrin get into the vehicle, a truck pulls in to check his trailer. I quickly stroll over and ask the driver if he has seen and Buffalo. “Yes about 4 or 5 km down the road there should be 7 or 8” the driver tells me. I get in the truck and we are off. A couple of minutes later, we see them. They are just walking down the Highway. We take some photos and then pass the animals to turn around and get them from a different angle. We head back to the city satisfied. Once again our waiting pays off and we get exactly what we want. I think Hendrik and Kathrin are being followed by good luck. It is the first time they have seen Buffalo. Here are some samples of what Dale and I saw today. Thanks again for reading and as always Happy Shooting.
