South-eastern British Columbia has long been a prime destination for outdoors folks due to its great scenery and it wide variety of animal species. But we also know of many outright crooks in this area- guys who make great promises and fail to deliver! Not so for this long term outfitter of ours. In this area you find: bighorns, mulies, Shiras moose, goat, various bears, elk and whitetails, plus mountain lion and bobcat!! So it […]
My company email is not working on this tablet so using this gmail account for now. Wow, this might be the best hunt I have ever done, and certainly will be asking you to re-book me next year. After the first morning of hunting I decided to re-book, game is just everywhere.
Way ahead of schedule on animals. Shot 6 animals in the first 4 days. Only have the bushbuck and nyala left and those are […]
If you are booked on a 2×1 hunt (meaning two hunters and one guide), we have some pretty firm thoughts on how to keep that situation fair and happy for all involved. What follows is the result of lessons learned on many hundreds of hunts.
RULE #1: NEVER agree to flip a coin for the first shot! A guy might go 4 days without pulling the trigger! Whoever lost the flip paid the same as the […]

In addition to the basic hunter education certification, the Division of Wildlife Conservation offers Alaskan […]

THE ROLE OF PROFESSIONAL BOOKING AGENTS
• What is a professional booking agent?
• What does he do for hunters and fishermen?
• Is there any advantage to your using one?
• Is there any downside with using one?
• What should you look for in an agent?
• Who pays the agent?

As a grandfather, husband for 48 years, devoted lover of kids and dogs and wildlife, I think there is a bit more to the picture. Non-hunters often think we love to kill things- and I agree that we hunters are at fault for not trying to show folks that there is a lot more to understand.
