Yeah I always hunt in Canada - the only US hunts I'm interested in would be Mule Deer/Elk in Wyoming, Montana or Colorado. But with our low dollar it's just not financially possible.
If I had my pick it would probably be Wyoming...I've always wanted to see it.
Licences up here vary from province to province just like they do from state to state in the US. I don't know the rules for all of them.
In Nova Scotia (NS) where I live now you need a basic hunting licence and then after that you buy tags (big game)/stamps (small game). It's not too expenisve for residents about $50 Cdn.
It's much the same in Sask.
Hunters fall into 3 general categories: those that live in a province are considered residents, then there's Canadian residents who are from another province, and finally non-residents who are from outside Canada. Usually non-residents have to hire a licenced guide by law.
I have done everything possible to get my kids involved in hunting. Every time out whether it be scouting, camping or during the actual hunt, I will challenge them to find their way back without using any electronics (GPS). Also without a compass. They know by now that I am going to challenge one of them, so right off the bat when leaving our vehicle or camp they will start picking out land marks to help them out. Makes me and them feel confident that if we were to somehow separate that they...
