Japanese curry is something I was introduced to years ago and it has since become one of my easy favourites.  It is basically a spicy stew with a thick gravy.  You can buy the Glico Japanese curry blocks at most grocery stores these days, usually in the Asian food aisle.   Ingredients - 2-3 lbs of short ribs or cubed meat - 1 pack of Glico curry.  (mild is shown here, but there is medium and hot as well) - 1 pack of baby carrots - 1 pack of mini potatoes - 3-4 cloves of garlic - 2 cups of Japanese short grain rice Steps 1) Medium dice the onion and garlic. 2) Line ..read more

https://thenarwhal.ca/backcountry-rodeo-scientists-and-indigenous-guardians-net-caribou-from-the-sky/ Vancouver Hunter: Great read. Happy to see collaborative management of Caribou between the Tahltan Nation and BC government biologists. We as hunters need to talk to our elected officials and ask them to find more funds for protecting habitat and wildlife. The four-year-old caribou is still on her feet, kicking and bucking like a Stampede bronc, as Clements Brace and Conrad Thiessen scramble toward her through the late October snow.  There‚Äôs a thin white mist drifting over th ..read more

Deer Heart

3y ago
I can honestly say that I was apprehensive about eating heart.  I don't know why.  Perhaps it was because, other than liver, I have never really eaten much organ meat. After hearing so many people describe how delicious it is, I decided to give heart a try.  I was not disappointed. The heart I prepared was from my last white tailed deer, a smaller 3x3 buck.  I followed the simple preparation outlined by MeatEater, both online and in their book, "The Complete Guide to Hunting, Butchering and Cooking Wild Game". The result was the most tender and flavourful meat I have ev ..read more

Resources for New Hunters

From time to time I get asked by friends who know someone who is interested in learning more about hunting to recommend where they should start.  If you know where to look, there are lots of great resources for new hunters and hunting curious people. I'll break this down into 3 categories, hunting curious people, hunter education, and new hunters.     Resources for Hunting Curious People If you didn't grow up around hunting, you may have negative preconceptions or concerns about hunting.  I know I did. Also, the whole idea of hiking through the woods and shooting an anima ..read more

 https://engage.gov.bc.ca/wildlifeandhabitat/ The comment deadline is January 9th at 4:00pm Vancouver Hunter responded with the following commentary: 1) Deadlines for action to protect habitat and begin restoring fish and wildlife populations are too far in the future, beyond 2021 and some even after 2025.  This pushes the start date to take action until after the next election.  It is not sufficient just to continue to make committees and monitor declines in wildlife and fish populations which are in crisis. 2) Dedicated funding from allocating 100% of hunting licence fee ..read more

Don't Laugh, But Crocs are the Best!

I love my Crocs so much that they deserve their own post.  I'm not going to lie and claim that I came up with Crocs as being a critical piece of hunting gear.  No, that honour belongs to the Rookie Hunter Podcast.  Fuck! They were right! Not only do I use my crocs around the house for taking out the trash or doing home renovation, but they are part of my critical kit whenever I am camping or hunting. After a long day in hunting boots, it is great to take off the boots and pad around camp in a pair of Crocs.  They let your feet and boots air out, reducing moisture and t ..read more

Everyone has gear that they love and gear that didn't live up to expectation.  Sometimes it can be quite costly to figure out what gear works for you.  Over the last 5 years I've tried to build my kit with a budget in mind and there are certainly some great scores and some things which have been disappointing. Can't Live Without Obviously my boots and rifle are critical, so here are some of the unsung heroes that I can't live without. Under Armour UA Enduro Pants These pants are semi-waterproof and incredibly durable.  I struggled a lot in the beginning with finding pants w ..read more

 The deadline is July 15th, 2019 at 4pm, so there isn't much time left to respond.  Here are my responses to the questions.  These answers have been informed by the conservation organizations I am a member of, the podcasts I listen to and my firsthand experiences in the backcountry. How should the Province identify opportunities and priorities for adapting forest management to a changing climate, such as mitigating the effects of beetle infestations, drought and fire?   The Province should seek input from provincial biologists on how to manage forests for climate chang ..read more
