The relaxing few days I was home over the holidays are in the rear view mirror now - I'm off and running for the new year!

Whirlwind European Hunts Coming to an End
Just finishing up a whirlwind hunting tour of Europe, now trying to rush home to get as much Saskatchewan whitetail season in as possible! Two weeks of straight hunting and hiking with cameraman, Tanner Adams, has been wild. First to Ljubljana in Slovenia
Winter Wonderland Starts Early in the Yukon
Yesterday was a winter wonderland up here, snowing like crazy. We were pretty well trapped in the cabin all day until the afternoon when we went out and saw a couple caribou bulls and a male grizzly bear. We've seen the same grizzly in the same area up ab
Break-and-Enter at Remote Yukon Cabin
Big news - yesterday we had a break-in at our main cabin. Not a typical break-in, but an intruder none the less. There's a family of gophers than live under the front steps and somehow one of them made his way inside. I had a couple of foamies on my bed w
Eva's First Caribou - Pink Gun and All
We're up in the Yukon - my favourite place of earth. Eva was up here a few days ago for the first time and she had a great time. She shot her first caribou and it was a beauty. Huge, huge top beams and really thick. We spotted it from a few miles away at
Do you have a toothpick? There's Narwhal stuck in my teeth...
The wind was howling about 60 mph this morning and drizzling rain, ugly, horrible weather. So nothing new here since yesterday. Huge waves out on the boat and we had to re-tie it in so we didn't lose it. We didn't really go anywhere and didn't even get ou
Whale Blubber Flavoured Bubble Gum in the Arctic
The weather was calm this morning, beautiful. We headed out on the boat for maybe an hour and cut into a bay at the mouth of a river out of the Coronation Gulf, which is in the Arctic ocean. So we cut back on this inlet and found where they hunted and
Barren Land Grizzly Hunt Begins... Almost
I've tried twice before for a Grizzly up here, so this is my third attempt. I brought my new Alpine bow up with me as well and I've been practiciing daily for the last few weeks, so hopefully I'll get to use it. Depends if we get close enough to a monster
Practicing with my New Alpine Bow at 80 Yards!
I finally have a few days at home and I just got my brand new 2012 Jim Shockey Alpine Bow set-up!!! I'm getting ready for a Grizzly hunt next week in the Arctic - using this bow for the first time! So far I'm shooting consistent 7-inch groups from 80 yard
Longest Shot of my Life!
We weren't having any luck with the Roebuck, but on the last evening we were waiting up on a mountaintop glassing and three wolves showed up all of a sudden. We saw a lot more wolves on this hunt than we did Roebuck actually. The guides got all excited wh
Feasting on Fermented Mare's Milk
Matty and I didn't get any sleep all morning because there's a dog that's taken up a home just outside our door. I've never heard a dog like that, barking all night long. Bark, bark, bark, only stopped long enough to breathe and then kept barking. Matty a
Wolf Trumps Roebuck in Mongolia
We got up this morning at 4am to try to get a whitetail gazelle. I got one last year but I wanted to try to find a much older one this time. We saw thousands last year but only two males - the one I got and then one that was even smaller than that. This y
Misjudged Monster Hangay
We got up at 3:30 to go hit the same area that we hit the first and the second day and the guys are still looking for the monster ram that they supposedly saw the second day, but still nothing as far as I can tell. We went all day long, trekked the same s
Hunting Hard for Hangay
Standing out here again at 3am in the pitch black. The stars are gorgeous today and yesterday it finally cleared off and we got nice weather in the afternoon. We hunted hard but we just couldn't find those bull rams that we had spotted the day earlier. We
Lots of Rain and Spooky Rams in Mongolia
I'm standing int he dark out here at about 3:30am. We just got up and they're making a quick breakfast in my gur then we're heading out hunting into the mountain ranges around here to go after Hangay argali. We were in Ulaanbaatar yesterday and drove all
