Moths

Postby ERIC » Sat Jun 27, 2015 11:27 am

Just received a report from a friend in the Blayney / MTR area that there's an extremely unusual outbreak of moths this year. She said they're everywhere.

Maybe I should be posting this in the Fishing Hole? :p

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Moths are also bear food. Grizz at least. Pretty sure a bear will eat anything it can find. We are in moth breeding season now in Petaluma, (oak trees).

Black bears too, good source of protein.
