The Kid Next Door
Jeff Johnson
The following photographs and stories are from different hunts and trips where I had invited my neighbors kid, Josh Emmert. Josh has joined up with me for many adventures and has always been a strong contributing hand to have along. His company in camp has and will always be a pleasure.

My husband Garth Chisholm & son Stephen have been going to the woods fishing and hunting from the time the latter was born or very shortly thereafter and this is one of their great highlights.

Evolution of a Turkey Hunter
Ian McCleary
Canada is not known for Her turkey hunting - but She's getting there! Turkey's were pretty much extinct here 20 years ago but thanks to the efforts of the NWTF and the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters, turkey's have been reintroduced and are now flourishing. Turkey hunting is difficult and demanding at the best of times - more so I think when you're starting from scratch. Those of you whose grandfathers and fathers taught you how to call, how to place decoys, when to move, when to stay put, when to call and when to shut up have an enormous advantage over those of us who are new to the game. It's like trying to read War and Peace before learning See Spot Run!
Dad's First Elk
Chad McDonald
My Dad and I drew Elk Tags for Wyoming in 2000 and went with an outfitter that was known for great service and quality hunts. My dad and I worked all summer getting shape as we had hunted elk for many years without success and we were not going to let our condition get in the way. On the first day of our hunt Dad was the "1st Choice" shooter. Our guide had us on elk within 20 min and we worked up the draw after them. The big bull in the bunch looked good. Just when we were 200 yards out with only one hill to climb up, another herd of elk came over the ridge and our little herd went up to join them! They bedded down and we took some pictures as we climbed the 2 1/2 miles up the long way! Thank God that we had been doing lots of walking and hiking!
