    Brilliant. Please update with more pictures.

    I have always thought having been a few places but never there, that if I was to live anywhere else in the world then Canada/Alaska would be it.

    Another picture came through this morning.
    There are more coming but they are bit hard to get off the camera with out a computer apparently. This is the only one she had on her phone.
    I wasn't expecting to hear from her for another ten days, but they got a moose and caribou on the first day.

    What part of Canada is your daughter in? My fiancee is from the Yukon, heading back there again next year... going to take the Dempster up to the Artic circle. Love the place.

    She is four hours up a river by jet boat from a place called Iskit (I think that's how it's spelt), toward the Yukon border.

    Done some homework. The place is called Iskut. South of Yukon Territory border, not Yukon river.

    @veitnamcam I have done a couple of trips across to Alaska and one that went through a little bit of Canada. When I get the chance I throw up some pictures - an amazing place and I would quite happily live there if NZ wasn't so good

    Here's a Goat they got last week.
    She's out on a Grizzly hunt now. Apparently the end of this season is the end of Grizzly hunting for ever in their area. Another win for the greenies.

    I don't know enough about what happens to the bear afterwards but could never shoot one personally.
    Never had the camera handy quick enough when we saw a grizzly, did get some shots of a black bear though.

    Does any meat get used from the bear hunts or is it purely trophy?

    This one was in Yosemite, another place I could live in.

    Black bear meat seems popular?
    Dunno about Grizzly meat.
    I couldn't shoot a bear unless it wanted to nibble on me.

    Moose, whitetail and a Mule deer are on my US/Canadian bucket list.
    And a big 50lb Salmon.

    Ah ok, never came across anyone selling it when I was there or would have given it a try.
    Self defence would be my only reason for shooting one too.
    Those mule deer are pretty impressive. Heard some rustling outside my tent and thought fuck, better not be a bear, step outside to a mule deer with a huge rack happily mooching away.

    I don't know about the meat from a Grizzly, but I would presume you would have to recover it. They are quite strict on that sort of thing usually. Hopefully I will be able to post pictures and tell more in week or so.
    As far as shooting a bear, if there were good numbers I wouldn't have an issue shooting one. And some areas in Canada there are more than the locals are comfortable with.
    Met a lady from Kootenay National Park area (met her here in NZ) who ran a Horse trecking business. She was all for them issuing bear tags for her area because of the high number of Grizzlies (they only have Grizzlies there). And she's not really pro hunting. Just has a realistic view of situations.

    Did she happen to say if many people got attacked by then around her area?
    Was interesting to hear that only one person in the last 100 years in Denali had been killed by a grizzly and that's because they were a stupid tourist that was pestering it and didn't head the warning signs grin the bear.

    All the pamphlets and warning signs around the place tel you to calming and slowing walk backwards well quietly letting the bear know you're there so not too surprise it. If you see a moose though they all said run as fast as you can
