It was (is) an excellent course, beats the one out here (NS) hands-down. Heavy emphasis on firearm safety in the field, survival and game identification. But if they allow hunters to take cheaper courses (even if they are better) how are they ever going to pay off that $1B disaster of a gun registry [sic]

It is a great course and getting both at the same time is a major plus. I mean the license and being able to register your guns. I took it last spring and taking both at the same time was really handy.
Wind is one of the most crucial variables in any kind of big game hunting. It helps level the playing field between a hunter with a scoped rifle and the game animals being hunted. This is not novel information. Any hunter who has consistent success in the field knows this. I have tried a couple different techniques for keeping track of the wind. Here are a couple.
The most simple and obvious is to just stay cognizant of it. It is amazing how slight of a breeze you can sense if you just pay...
