Out of the Mist
By Craig Gillock
After arriving in Fort St. John, we spent the night in a local hotel then were picked up in the morning and driven to an airstrip outside Pink Mountain. A short flight in a famous Beaver bush plane and we were at base camp where we met up with good friends Amber and Booker, owners of Wicked River Outfitters. Dad and I have hunted with Wicked River several times over the past few years. We’ve always had a great time, seen loads of animals, and been successful in our harvest. We had no doubt this trip would be the same and we were ready to get started.

All I heard was “Shoot! Shoot!” each time getting progressively louder as the bear gained speed and distance, with each step getting closer and closer. This trip was an adventure of a lifetime. So many
things happened that I had never seen or even dreamed possible. It couldn’t have been scripted any better. On this trip I visited the beautiful province of British Columbia, Canada, drove a boat for the first time, and caught my first rainbow trout, first lake trout, and first rocky mountain white fish.
Two Old Goats
By Archie Landals
Having dreamt about a mountain goat hunt for much of our lives but never being lucky enough to get a tag in Alberta, we decided to look at BC. After searching the outfitters online and exchanging emails with some, we booked with Greg Williams of Golden Bear Outfitting which operates in the Telegraph Creek/Stikine River area of northwestern BC. With horses in one of their remote camps we could ride to tree line thus reducing the climbing required to get to mountain goat habitat.
