Long Haired Goats, By Nolan Osborne

B.C’s goat population, though not studied heavily, is estimated at approximately 50’000 animals—half of the world population. The remaining goats in North America are spread out across the western United States, Alaska, Yukon Territory, and the Northwest Territories. If the mountains of British Columbia are the kingdom of the mountain goat, then surely the Coast Range is their stronghold.

Top Training Gear of 2018, By Adam Janke

When it comes to training gear, the most important variable I consider is versatility. If I can find a piece of gear, equipment, or a nutritional supplement or product that’s as valuable for training as it is for hunting, I’m a happy customer.

280 AI My, My, My! By Ron Spomer

As we made our way down, two wolves were howling in the valley below. It was really eerie to hear the howls echo in the valley as we marched my trophy off the mountain, but it certainly added to the moment.

Shooting Under Pressure, By Aaron Davidson

I want to systematically explore air pressure topics so that we all have common nomenclature and a basic understanding of measurement and reporting systems.  We will start with a general discussion of air pressure, definition of terms, measurement devices, and then finish with some alternative ways to use pressure data when calculating ballistics.

Technology & The Purity of Experience, By Nolan Osborne

And yet, here we find ourselves. Under stars, older than the dirt beneath our feet. Surrounded by mountains that took shape before the first of our kind came into existence. Huddled around a campfire, as our aforementioned kin once did. Glued to a f–king screen.

Serengeti of the North: The Muskwa-Kechika, By Nolan Osborne

The melodic thrum of the Cessna 206 filled the cockpit as the small gravel runway shrunk below us. Leaving the quiet community of Toad River, British Columbia behind us, we steadily climbed in elevation over the jagged peaks of the Northern Rocky Mountains. Our aerial path loosely tracing one of the many rivers, branching and braided in vein-like networks, deep into the heart of the Muskwa-Kechika Management Area.
