Canadian Deer Hunting: Caution P.G. Rating

…Moderators Comment….The following post does not represent the views or, indeed, the eco-friendly outlook we here at VBL tend to value. It has been left as an indication of the long winter and it’s affect on certain VBL guests. Let’s hope for warmer weather so that Andy Lewis can get back to normality….and fishing…… By the way, the only connection to VBL is the fantastic shirt that Andy is “sporting”….only available here at the lodge!…

Most VBL guests don’t get to experience the long Canadian winters or appreciate the adaptations that have to be made in these harsh conditions. Deer hunting for example. I know this may sound hard to believe, but the snow gets so deep that you have to shoot them in the fall and go back to harvest them in the spring and hope that the wolves haven’t devoured them (see earlier post on this topic). So, while Gord was tanning himself in Mexico, we figured it was time to go back and harvest that monster shot in the fall. Go no further if you couldn’t handle the photo posted by Gord with the treble hook buried in the hand. Look away now, this isn’t for the faint of heart!

Hmmm, what’s this (no this isn’t this month’s contest)??

Let’s get a rope on him!

What’s that smell??

This should make a fine addition to John’s bare cabin wall (notice the VBL jacket).

Hand me Ed Gein’s Axe

Now there’s some tender canadian viddles

Now don’t say you weren’t warned. Cabin fever can be an awful thing.

  1. Hello Electric Beaver,
    I have seen dead white tail deer and moose near the Vermilion Bay Lodge.
    This is a scene that I have seen in Ontario.

This is a first class resort located on Vermillion Bay on Eagle Lake. The cabins are very clean and well kept. The boats are new with new motors and are in great shape. The owner will also clean your fish for you after your day on the water. Make no mistake the fishing on Eagle Lake is world class.

The Lodge is owned by Gord and Susanne Bastable who will make you feel welcome and before you know it you feel like family. They are the best of hosts. The atmosphere is low key and laid back leading to a great vacation.

This is my 19th year of enjoying the hospitality of the lodge and i can’t think of going anywhere else on Eagle Lake.
