Smoked Mountain Caribou
The view from the air was breathtaking. The Mackenzie River and its tributaries snaked their way from the rugged mountain tops to create a monster-sized river flowing through a wide, sweeping valley. With a storm front on the horizon the clouds provided a backdrop of moody colours and light streaming through seams in the billowy…
Freshwater Piranha–Goldeye
The remote solitude of the Athabasca River is a special place to fish in late summer. I was fishing with Ray Kohlruss of Reel Angling Adventures ( and we were hoping to boat some big walleye. Ray introduced me to the Athabasca years ago, and it is still a favorite destination for big fish. Fishing…
Kidz Bear Camp
When my outfitter buddy Clay Royer asked if I was interested in black bear hunting a few days this spring, along with his boys and a good friend and son, I couldn’t resist. We did a similar camp last spring during the Covid lockdown and had a fantastic adventure. It is always exciting to harvest…

A whitetail buck has his work cut out when it comes to getting the opportunity to breed. When a doe comes into estrus and locates a dominant buck,…
Saskatchewan Bush Bucks: A Welcome COVID Respite

Opportunities to hunt Whitetailed deer in our neighboring province of Saskatchewan are available through a draw or with an outfitter. Many of the outfitters have licenses specific to Canadian residents, so there are plenty of options. I booked a hunt with Mark…
First World Deer Problems
My phone started quacking indicating I had an incoming text. It was from our outfitter Scott Fink, of Goose Creek Outfitters in Nebraska, and he was sending trail camera photographs of deer showing up near some of his stand locations. At first, I couldn’t believe my eyes and enlarged the image to see if it…
