The does were out of Read More
Sometimes it just feels like your getting nowhere. No matter what you do, or how hard you work your efforts appear totally unrewarded. We’d been hunting whitetail deer for four days solid and we hadn’t even seen a track. November was fast passing us by and the weather had turned significantly over the previous few days. Even the mule deer were on the move. I was in south-east British Columbia hunting with Total Outdoor Adventures and I’d already been there for nearly two weeks. My hunt was originally scheduled for 8 days, but we’d decided to extend the period to Read More
Friday the 29th didn’t bring good results for Team Wild. Steve and I decided to head out on our last hunt of 2011 and bag a fox or two with the lamp. Try as we might though we couldn’t pull anything to us, even the FoxPro Fury wasn’t going to change their minds but to be honest I don’t think I would have been out on a night like that if I was Charlie. There was a strong wind (not Wildy for once) and the rain was lashing down and to make matters worse we had decided to go on Read More

In life, its our personal landmarks that define us – learning to ride a bicycle, our first kiss, graduating from high school, getting married, shooting our first deer! It’s also a very special feeling to be part of other peoples landmark occasions, particularly if they’re family and friends. Earlier today, I was privileged to be present when my wife, Clare – otherwise known as Princess – shot her very first deer! Not only was this an exciting event in its own right, but it was also in a pretty exotic location – the beautiful Hawaiian island of Maui I’d enjoyed Read More
