Opening Day Magic
By Brett Marciasini
It was a cool and crisp September morning in the East Kootenays of British Columbia. For the first time in my life, I was searching for a bull elk with a tag in my pocket and a rifle in my hand. As a native of California, it is extremely rare to see an elk in the wild; so seeing a large bull elk would be a very special experience.

Mountain hunters, when speaking about their quest for the American mountain goat, often exclaim, “Goat hunting starts where sheep hunting ends.” This oft-repeated quote refers to the elevations that goats inhabit versus sheep. My sheep hunt with Stone Mountain Safaris ended with the harvesting of a nice Stone ram half-way through my fourteen-day hunt.
Moose Quest from New Zealand
By Andrew Hawke
