February 18th, 2010
I have been in touch with the editor, Mike Mitchell off and on for close to 2 years now and when Mike asked me if I would like to contribute to the BC Outdoors on line blog team, I gladly accepted!! British Columbia is incredibly rich in fish and wildlife resources with great angling, hunting and outdoor opportunities and I look forward to adding my own adventures.
Readers will find themselves reading not only about hunting but from an assortment of outdoor activities I actively partake in. Like the seasons, I often change my activities accordingly. Whether, it is ice fishing /skiing adventures in the winter, fly fishing trips to small lakes in the spring, canoe trips / hiking in the summer right into fall hunting. I’ll have a bit of everything!!
One prevalent thought on my mind at this moment as I type this blog, is I am anxiously awaiting the results of the LEH draws for Dall sheep in the extreme northwest corner of British Columbia known as the Tatshenshini. I probably shouldn’t get my hopes up too high this time around as my sheep hunting partner Brent Tingstad and I have both been very fortunate to have drawn the Dall sheep tags the past two years in a row. What an adventure those 2 sheep hunts were!! We did not harvest sheep but it wasn’t without opportunity to do so on legal rams!
Now before some of you start wondering why I am talking about LEH draws at this time of year when they normally come out in the spring, this year was the first year the Skeena (Region 6) decided to move all sheep draws early for 2010 with a February 5thdeadline. Pending draw results will be out by February 20th!! This move is to allow person’s who draw tags the ability to perhaps plan their trips better with advanced notice. This greatly avoids the conflicts experienced by many hunters (myself included) during the 2009 sheep season when most of us did not get the draw results until 2 weeks before August 1st sheep season started. It is a step in the right direction.
