Default Long time lurker

Hello all,

I have been a member of this form for years, but I have never posted. Figured I better introduce myself so I could start contributing. I am southern/central Alberta born and raised. I grew up on a cattle/export hay/crop farm and have always had a real passion for the outdoors. I took sort of a hiatus, outside hiking, when I moved off the farm into town, but I have recently started getting back into camping, fishing and would like to get into hunting more than just problem varmints.

Looking forward to contributing and learning.

edit: apparently I have posted before, still probably need to introduce myself after the long time away

Default Exploring new adventures

Hey all, new guy here 🤓 Iíve recently bought a house in Black Diamond area, Iíve dabbled in sheep in 440 and regularly moose in 353. Not overly comfortable with bothering strangers and knocking on doors looking for permission so Iím thinking of poking around the crown land in 402. Anything crawling around there in November? any thoughts on the zone and exploring it? I work long shifts in the Arctic but I get long days off to go play in the woods.

Default New from Airdrie

Hi Everyone,

Iím Jason from Airdrie, was a big hiker and occasional fish man in by younger years before I opened my business and had kids. Meet my wife in scouts and we did a lot of camping and backpacking early on.
We have started getting back into outdoor life now that the Boys are getting older(5y,3y) we we bought our own camp trailer (Jan2021)
We started fishing as a family this year even though we are terrible.
I also went clay shooting for the first time at Silver Willow this past Friday. I have already booked my CFSC for Feb and will be joining Siliver Willow as soon as I get my Pal.

I am excited to come and learn here.

Default We are the Anderson Family and Bear Butchering

Hello there Folks!

This is Bjorn Anderson here, owner of Bear Butchering, a little butcher shop located in the foothills of the Livingstone Range. On the morning of January 28 a fire started in my butcher shop which quickly spread into the rest of the house. Thankfully my family was able to exit safely, and miraculously the fire was extinguished before everything turned to ashes. We still do not know what, if any, of the house or shop will be repairable.

I started my shop up 8 years ago, not exactly knowing what I was getting myself into, besides a lot of work Through those last 8 years the greatest satisfaction I have experienced in the business has been the relationships that I have developed with my customers. The largest part of my customer base are hunters, and I have enjoyed sharing in their successful hunts when they drop off an animal, and providing them with quality food they can enjoy in their own homes.

Since we had the fire, my family has been overwhelmed with love, support and generosity. Once again, a large portion of that generosity and care has come from those same hunting customers.

I'll take this opportunity to say thank you to the folks in this AOF community, who have went out of their way to set up this fundraiser for me and my family. Though I don't know who many of you are here on this forum, just knowing that there is a community of people out there who are generous and who care is a big blessing to us. Thank you again!

Default New to Alberta

Just joined the forum, been hunting for many years before moving across the country to this fine province! Good to be here!

Me and my wife moved to Southern Alberta last summer and have really been enjoying the mountain backcountry with our children.

Really hoping to meet some people on here that are into similar things, trying to make some new friends!

As a family we enjoy hikes, camping, quad trails and have just recently got back into horseback riding.

Hello all,

Been lurking the forum here and there for years, but decided to sign up as I'm finally getting started as a first-time hunter this year, as part of an effort to get more personally involved with the food that I eat and get away from imported/feedlot meats. Looking forward to learning more!

Hey..New bow hunter here. Looking forward to the draw results. Have passed the new hunter course and have bow hunting license and will know soon where I can go based on the draw. But that's about all I know! Never hunted before just getting into it first time this year. What are some good newby hunting books or other resources besides the endless hours of youtube videos I have watched?lol

Talking My new sign. Gone Fishing!

Hello everyone.
I joined this forum to discover places to fish and people to fish with. I just bought a tin Jon boat and motor and want to use it as much as possible.
I've also applied for my PAL, 11 weeks ago, and I've not heard anything from the authorties since. When and if I'm granted permission to aquire a long rifle, I will. Then I'll go plinking.
Fishing anyone?

This all day long! http://albertaregulations.ca/huntingregs

Read it through, read it through again...

Print copies are usually available at sporting goods stores (Canadian Tire etc.) so they are handy to have in the vehicle, or the magazine rack in the W.C., etc...

Hi, thanks for this forum! I've drilled through alot of the info on here, thanks for everyone who posts.
I grew up in Swan Hills Alberta, I spent most of my childhood summers fishing and sailing on lesser slave lake. (Spruce Point Park, Kinuso)
I know live in Edmonton and we are currently building a private campground near Fort Assiniboine, Athabasca river area. We used to do an annual canoe trip from blue ridge to fort Assiniboine every September long, now that I am older, me and the gang like to have some luxuries when camping :-)

I enjoy fishing, beer, bushwacking, quading, mini trucking, and watching wildlife.
