Posted by on in Hunting

My cameraman and I had flown into Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, to film a black bear hunt with Linda Powell.

He was carrying a huge camera that was probably two feet long. I breezed through customs, but a female agent who spotted the camera confronted Larry and asked him a number of questions.

Persistence Pays Off

Posted by on in Public Blog

There are still some hunters today who believe that does should never be targeted, no matter the circumstances. That attitude is centered on the notion that the more does, the more breeding animals, and therefore more bucks later on. That was the prevailing attitude when I was a teenager. It was considered a cardinal sin to shoot a doe. Biologists held town meetings to explain new wildlife management practices.
