    Apparently the ram doesn't score that well.
    I'm more envious than proud. She didn't shoot it, just put the client on to it.
    She's living my dream.

    Canada is an absolutely beautiful place, the National parks are so massive and the picturesque landscapes never seemed to end.

    The wildlife is amazing, is very cool being with touching distance (being attacked distance) of a massive bull elk.
    Never felt inclined to what to hunt anything there, animals seemed too tame, so used to humans and so many of them, that hunting would've felt unsporting.

    I feel the same about shooting things up there now. Thirty years ago I would have been keen to bring heads back. But now I think I'd be happy to watch them in their home environment and leave them there.


    She hasn't been back to base(and internet) for quite a while so haven't had any more pictures. Getting the occasional message via inreach. Apparently she is in serious bear country so hopefully she has some good pictures to send.

    Boaraxa...yeah mate,the moose thing is a tough one.Shot one in Alaska,and Christ,what a lot of meat to pack out.We were floating the susitna,inflatable,and it just stood there,not much of a hunt at all.Biggest issue was getting it out before the wolves and grizz boys showed up.Only time I've ever really seen moose get pissed off,are cows with calves,good luck with that situation.

    Not all areas in Canada are easy hunting. When hunting season opens up there are a lot of hunters around especially in the area my son lives. Hunting is hard / different in his area as we have tried the Kiwi way hunting the bush but found the animals are more weary of foot hunters than quads and vehicles. My best Mule deer buck was shot from the truck after driving up a track after a frosty night, the buck was white with frost and only about 70 yards away and sitting down.
    Some of the vast remote areas would have animals that have never seen humans so they would be easier to hunt than other areas. Still its a great place to be and hunt.

    Bucket list and with 1 of mmwsm deaughters as a guide. Why because of that beautiful smile and I.m positive that it would be a very rewarding experience. My daughter is 20 yrs this month and we still hunt occasionally together. Would take her as well.
