Northern BC is a big big country, it has big big critters. I am always humbled when I am lucky enough to take one.
I wish there was a day of the week that started with an "A" as this surely is an 'awesome day' story. 11 year old Peyton was out hunting with her dad Seth Lucas Robertson Shelley on October 11th and shot this beautiful black bear. That's the up front story, the back story is this; Peyton saved up her own pennies in 2020 and paid for her own CORE certification, she then saved up more of her own pennies and bought herself a 7-08. That is what she shot this bear with, it wasn't the first bear she tried to kill but it certainly was a good one to finally put it all together on. As many of you know we, bndproductions.ca, held a spring bear raffle. Willie Bertacco was the successful hunter who won the skull euro from Denton Johnson. Willie donated it back and we decided to give it to a youth hunter who displayed perseverance and passion for hunting. Well done Peyton and congratulations........
When I was just a little kid, I read (National Geographic) about the Himba people of the Sahara desert, I was amazed and frankly still am. A couple years ago my buddy Geoff #ghkodiak and I traveled to Windhoek, Namibia for an epic hunt. We killed a Zerbra, Kudu, Antelope, Blesbok, Caracal, Warthog and a killer Blue Gnu, but this picture by far is my favourite memory of the trip. #africa #himbatribe #adventure #huntingisapassion #bndproductions #tailsfromthetrail2
