Bridge the Gap

Bridge the Gap

I’ve been told time and again I’ll never bridge the gap between the backcountry hunter and the long distance thru-hiker. It baffles me as to why we go out of our way not to interact with one another when there is a vast pool of knowledge waiting to be tapped into,...

From City Boy to Hunter

From City Boy to Hunter

I tried controlling my breath as I quickly positioned the tripod between two rocks. My eyes strained as I focused the camera on the herd. It was midday and we were already six hours into our stalk. We had spooked them once, sending them three kilometres deeper into...

Born to Hunt

Born to Hunt

If you’re a road runner, triathlete or trail runner, you’ve likely read or know someone that’s read the book Born to Run by Christopher McDougall. Even if you’re not an endurance junkie, it’s a fascinating story about human potential and worth checking out. Although...

DIY Fruit Leathers

With the snow melting away in the high-country, we’re all gearing up for spring adventures. But this also means we need healthy, trail-worthy snacks. In the process of perfecting my dehydrated fruit leather recipe, I came up with a new twist that’s been a huge hit...

Harmony

I can still recall the countless hours sitting in the hardwoods. The same type of forest I had spent much of my youth in. Mountain biking, snowshoeing, hiking. Fort building, xc skiing, wrestling my brothers through the leaves in the fall.  But those hours of...

Our Basic Instincts

Our Basic Instincts

I am a hunter. This is true.  I am also a backpacker, a hiker, an angler, a horsewoman. I played soccer and lacrosse for nearly a lifetime, so perhaps I’m still an athlete. I’m a writer by trade, a hobby photographer, a voracious reader, an animal lover, a...

From Vegan to Hunter

From Vegan to Hunter

I was once vegan, and now fill my freezers with meat from my hunts. When people hear that I once made my own tofu, and now proudly hang what most non-hunters would call trophies throughout my house, they are usually dumbfounded. You, my dear reader, are likely having...

A Legacy for All British Columbians

A Legacy for All British Columbians

B.C.’s Conservation Legacy Started with a Single Idea My grandfather and I were close. He hailed from the small community of Marysville in Southeastern B.C and was a mine worker, logger, hunter and a trapper. I was born into his family and developed a strong sense of...
