Dustin Roe has been a sheep guide for nearly half of his life. Along those many adventures, his network in the outfitting business has grown to include like minded people across much of North America. One such friend is Glenda Groat, owner and operator of Canol Outfitters. Over the years Roe has sent Groat a handful of clients, and as a thank you for that business, Groat had a gift for Dustin: a tag for Roe to hunt a Dall Sheep of his own.
Outfitter Dustin Roe pushes gear—and his guides—to the outer limits. The fail factor was high. No one had ever hunted stone sheep in the rut, in November, in northern British Columbia, where bitter cold and high mountain winds stopped even the most seasoned mountain hunters.

Every year, multiple grizzly bears are mistaken for black bears by hunters and killed. The end results are damage to grizzly bear populations and severe fines and court fees for the hunter. In order to fulfill my responsibility as an ethical hunter, I always go through a list of physical features to positively identify what kind of bear I’m looking at before shooting.
Ask a handful of hunters about eating bear meat and you will likely get a number of wildly different responses, anything from “it’s inedible” and “it isn’t safe to eat,” to “it’s the best meat out there.” As a chef and a hunter that loves to eat bear meat, I am passionate about dispelling the myths that surround the consumption of this animal.
Turkey Calling Tips from Call Maker David Halloran
David is the owner and craftsman behind all the beautifully-built products at David Halloran Turkey Calls where each call is thoughtfully carved by hand. Halloran grew up in New York state without a hunting mentor. Instead, at the age of 12, he and his dad learned to hunt turkeys together. “Through a lot of trial and error, my dad and I became proficient callers and turkey hunters,” Halloran says. Today, turkey hunting is his life. During the spring, when he isn’t in his shop building calls, he’s traveling all over North America doing what he loves most: outwitting and calling in long beards.
