Hello all,

I've been lurking on this forum for years but finally starting to post in some of the threads and join the conversation. I grew up around Edmonton and now live in Calgary. I've hunted for years and have just started in "back country" hunting.

Stay safe guys, stay at home, do not help spread the Corona Virus. Follow your health protocols.

I've been going through this game Subway Surfers and find that some levels can be very challenging. It took me a few days to get out of Subway Surfers online game one specific level.
Atta boy, you must be looking to get your post count up ASAP

Hello Everyone,

Just join the forum, excited to be here.
My name is Asher, 37 years old, live in Legacy, Calgary.
Looking to get some information on target shooting areas near Calgary.
Heard about Millarville west on range road, and some other places but not too sure on exact location or even if it's still open for public use.
I welcome any suggestions and tips and where and when to go.

Thanks to all,

Hey all. New to this board. Born and raised in Edmonton. Been hunting for about 15 years and was lucky enough to take a beauty whitetail in 2019 that grossed 186 and netted 183 3/8, Damn book. My buddies are always kind enough to remind me that there is a good chance I may never shoot another that big again in my life, Damn buddies. Been on CGN for a long while and a subscriber to AO for 10 yrs but final got off my rear to be active on this board.

Howdy new members!
Anytime I figure I've got this long range thing figured out, I just strap into the sling and irons and remind myself that I don't!

Good to hear that it was not a licensed firearms owner that did that shooting. Anyone can get firearms of any type if wanted bad enough. What a sad story for the victims. A very tough situation for the RCMP as well.

Default Hey all

Hello! I figure its about time I make an intro post. I made my account a little while ago but have only been browsing and have bought a couple items off of the buy n sell but I can't leave feedback for the guys until I post more. Looking forward to getting a spring bear in the next couple weeks and hanging around the buy n sell more. Trudeau banned 5+ of my guns so I will have to buy 6 or more to make up for it!!!

Default Longtime Lurker

Hi Everyone,
Ive been following this forum for a long time and i have used the knowledge here to have some great adventures. Figured it was time to start contributing. I grew up hunting deer and moose but stopped while in university. Slowly in the last 5 years i have been jumping headlong back into it. I find myself drawn to a lot more backcountry hunting, which coincides with my job in the military. I have quite a bit of experience outdoors and hiking around, but I'm always looking to learn. Alberta Outdoorsmen has been a great resource for gaining some insight. Im very interested in both waterfowl and sheep hunting two types of hunting that i have never been exposed to. Currently living in Edmonton.

Hello there,

Fellow lurker who never bother to make an account. Decided to do so in order to view photos, check out new methods to fishing and buy goods off fellow members

About me:

Avid pike fly fisherman who enjoy trying new things. I donít travel much but enjoy fishing in my local swamp. I also do spinning rod for pike as well so theres that. I havenít caught any monsters or even other species as much as Pike. Iíve been trying to catch the elusive Brown trout for 3 years now but either too lazy to travel or have been skunked enough time.

Fly shops always give me the weird looks when I tell them I dont care for presentation and have my own different method to pike fly fishing. Its all in good fun!

Default Just got here, sorry I'm late.

I went on a fly fishing trip in Montana last year, it was fantastic! Now I need to buy all the things so I can do it here as well. I have also decided I would like to try out hunting as well. My uncle and grandfather hunted for years, unfortunately they stopped well before I thought about getting into it. I do remember the smell of moose hanging in the garage though...

Default Intro


I just found this site in my search for answers on what's needed to convert a van to an RV and where to get it assessed after. I just bought this thing in BC, had the transmission blow on the way back (despite the seller swearing the transmission was good) then it failed out of province inspection.... Did I mention I had a pre purchase inspection done on it?? Got the necessary repairs.... And now I can't find insurance because it's a commercial vehicle and I'm using it for personal use. The easy camping season is almost over, trash humans are out there ruining what's left of crown land camping, and I'm wasting the precious few moments left on this insurance problem. Anyway. Searching the forum on this info as I heard I can get insurance if I convert it .. Can't find how anywhere though. I want the bare minimum as I didn't want to change it at all at least not until next year. .

Greetings to All!

After decades of neglecting hunting, sport shooting and firearms in general, I'm hopping back in the saddle and ready to get back at it.

Plenty of catching up to do with regards to all the new tech that's out there now, but I always stuck to the basics anyway.

Mailed my PAL & RPAL applications August 1 so I don't realistically expect anything in the mail till late Dec or into Jan of next year.

While I'm waiting I got my wish list all set, and if I see a good deal on related equipment that I will need I pick it up.

Great forum, good local content and hope I can contribute in meaningful way.

Default Hello new here just saying hello

Hello all, just joined and thought I'd introduce myself. Iím 52 born in BC lived in Alberta since 1990 Love it here itís definitely home! I've been quading, hunting & camping for many years. Mostly birds as I love love my compound bow. I have been learning to fish and took up kyaking since moving to cold lake last year. With the C19 and economic instability I have recently started prepping. I have found that I actually have a lot of good skills already and make my own preserves and grow my own garden and Iím actually doing some of it already. So I thought I would take it to the next level and I donít see anything weird about it and surprisingly most of the people I have talked to about it donít think itís weird either lol. I was not sure if there were any forums where it would be a welcome topic but I thought this would be a great place to start and hopefully learn some new things specifically trapping interests me.
