During the recent muskrat camp outside Burwash Landing (at Lake Creek territorial campground) students got to meet trappers.
Ryan Sealy of Environment Yukon’s Trapper Education program obtained a lynx from a trapper in Pelly Crossing Yukon. Students saw how the fur is used and also the meat. It turns out lynx is edible — Sealy even calls it a “family favorite.”
The meat was cut into little cubes so that everyone would have a piece. I would describe it as tasting just like chicken if slightly chewier.
Caribou have a spring migration and these days they are crossing the Alaska highway outside of Watson Lake and near Teslin Yukon.
It can be a real road hazard at night. A large sign can be seen on the road warning people about their presence.
Travelling south of Watson Lake, I saw these massive bison outside Lower Post B.C.
They seemed unbothered by the occasional truck passing by.
Driving through Kluane National Park I encountered these Dall sheep.
They are very sure-footed as they climb rocky escarpments.
Look out anytime driving the Alaska Highway as there could be wildlife along the side.
This deer was spotted between Whitehorse and Haines Junction.
Driving to Atlin, BC, spotted this lynx on the Yukon side. A rare encounter.
