Hunting Diary

  • Kandi’s First Bear - Quebec

    This last fall Vicki and I were talking about doing a hunt together; the last hunt we did was Caribou and we had a blast. I had never been bear hunting so Vicki came up with the idea for both of us to go bear hunting. Vicki, being a seasoned bear hunter, I felt really good about the hunt. We have both filmed for over 18 years with our husbands, so we elected not to take cameramen, but film each other.… read more »

  • One Unique Bear - Quebec

    This was probably the best bear hunt I had ever been on. I was able to share it with my dad, good friend Chris, and quite a few other first time bear hunters. You can just imagine the excitement we all had! When we arrived in Quebec we were greeted by Yvon Champagne of ‘Le Griff Quebec’. With just a short ride to camp, we unpacked and began to review trail camera pictures Yvon had. There… read more »

  • The Last Hour Bear - Manitoba

    Back in march I received a text from Ralph asking if I would have the time to go bear hunting this spring. “Absolutely”, I said!! About a week later I found out I would be going to Adrenaline Outfitters in Manitoba with Gary Smoot from Archers Choice Media. Fully knowing the success the POSSE has had there in the past only increased the excitement and anticipation I had inside. Adrenaline… read more »

  • The Magic Sandwich - Manitoba

    On the flight to Winnipeg I stared out the window and wondered what lay in store for Bucky and I at Adrenaline Outfitters. Remembering the 2009 season at Adrenaline Outfitters, where Joe took a big color-phase bear and Zendal’s unforgettable miss of a truly once in a lifetime bear, my hopes were running high and the adrenaline was pumping. When we arrived it didn’t take long to figure out… read more »

  • Big Bear - Alberta

    I had extremely high hopes of an exciting hunt when I got the call from Jody asking if I would be available to do an Alberta bear hunt with Freddy this spring, but I had no idea what I was actually in store for. The hunt started on a gloomy Saturday morning with an early ride to the airport to start the first leg of our long journey. After a relatively easy passage through airport security, we boarded… read more »

  • Backup - Virginia

    On April 26, 2010 a good friend of mine, Frank Bottomley (Frankie), called and asked if I would like to go turkey hunting the next morning. He said he had a couple of birds roosted and with a little luck maybe we both could get one. We met the next morning and made our way through the pre-dawn darkness to our set up. At day light, the birds began gobbling but stopped as soon as they flew down from… read more »
