Beginner Guide to Hunting in Winter

In the fall, hunters often comb the woods hunting for deer, ducks, and geese, among many other game which are roaming the grounds in search for food. In the winter, it’s pretty much a different story. Colder temperatures and snowfall make the environment much less hospitable for most animals. Deer, especially, migrate to areas with less snow. So you won’t find as many of them on your preferred hunting grounds. In this article, I will explore a few tips on how to make the best of hunting during the winter. 

Prepare Your Gear In Advance

Winter hunting requires a lot more preparation than fall hunting. Colder temperatures can impact your gear. If you’re not ready, you can ruin your gear or injure yourself. 

Temperature Ratings

First, you’ll want your gear to be rated for the temperatures you’ll be hunting in. It is necessary for your rifle and any scopes you

Things to Do in Rossland, BC in 3 Days

Last updated:

Rossland, British Columbia is a fantastic mountain town located in the south-central part of the province. It’s a year-round outdoor lover’s paradise. In winter, Rossland is well known for world-class skiing and snowboarding at RED Mountain Resort. Come summer and fall, it shines with the hiking and mountain biking crowd. 

The former gold-mining town is growing in the wake of COVID, with people moving here to enjoy easy access to nature, a laidback lifestyle in a spectacular setting, along with many of the amenities they find in a city including locally owned coffee shops, restaurants, a microbrewery, and a phenomenal grocery store – all without the crowds.

Top 150 Unusual Things to See in Alberta

Last updated:

Debbie Olsen, my friend and fellow co-author of 200 Nature Hots Spots in Alberta, is the author of another book, Top 150 Unusual Things to See in Alberta, published in summer 2022 by Firefly Books. If you thought you knew the province – and I certainly did, then I think you would be shocked at what she has uncovered.

In the 272-page book, Debbie will take you across Alberta and show you loads of unusual things including unusual foods invented in Alberta, unusual festivals and events in Alberta, unusual bathrooms for regular people, and unusual sites around the province. What I also appreciated was her “Did you know” additions to many of the write-ups.

Best Hikes in Snow Canyon State Park

Last updated:

Snow Canyon State Park near St. George, Utah is a gem filled with soaring multi-coloured sandstone cliffs, lava flows, and canyons along with a diverse array of plants and animals including 14 sensitive species. Snow Canyon is not nearly as popular as famous Zion National Park – where everyone seemingly heads for, but a few of the hikes here are mind-blowing. Described are a selection of the best hikes in Snow Canyon – some of which you can knock off in 30 minutes to an hour. Hike at least a couple of them if you’re anywhere near the area.

There are a total of 19 hiking trails in the park covering 38 miles. Although many are short and family-friendly, they still have broad appeal. One of the best hikes in Snow Canyon we did was the Petrified Dunes trail. If you only do one hike,

Sulphur Skyline Trail Hike, Jasper National Park

The Sulphur Skyline trail hike in Jasper National Park draws the crowds, even though it’s take-your-breath-away steep for a good part of it. But the popular hike is a rewarding one, offering up 360 ° degree views from the summit, especially of the Fiddle River, Utopia Mountain, and Ashlar Ridge. It’s one of the view hikes in the Canadian Rockies where you can combine a strenuous hike with a soak in a hot springs – with the other hike being the Sulphur Mountain hike in Banff National Park. The hike starts within spitting distance of the Miette Hot Springs, so while you’re working hard on the hike, you can dream about the soothing waters you can enjoy after.

Wire Pass to Buckskin Gulch Hike

Buckskin Gulch is a famous slot canyon in Utah boasting the title as the longest continuous slot canyon in the world. According to the Bureau of Land Management, Buckskin Gulch travels through approximately 16 miles of unique formations and rippled sandstone walls in the northern stretch of the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness. Although you can do the whole Buckskin Gulch hike in a long day, you can also have a wonderful and shorter experience doing the Wire Pass to Buckskin Gulch hike. That hike takes only about three hours.

On the Wire Pass to Buckskin Gulch hike, you are also able to explore the Wire Pass slot canyon – a worthy experience in my view. If you’re in the Page – Kanab area, this is a great way to experience two slot canyons on one hike. Over several miles you’ll walk through a wash, pass the turnoff to the

Where To stay In Canggu: Most Popular Hotels

#1 Stay Along Canggu’s Main Street Batu Bolong

The main parts of Canggu can be found along Jl. Batu Bolong running towards the ocean. Restaurants, boutique shops, spas, bars, weekend markets, accommodation, it’s all here.

Great idea to stay around here if it’s your very first time coming to Canggu. It’s easily walkable as paved sidewalks have now arrived in Canggu!

#2 Stay At Berawa Beach – Close To Seminyak & Finns Beach Club

Across the bumpy shortcut from here, you will get to Jl. Pantai Berawa, another area I really like. Places are set a little more apart and I recommend a scooter to get to all the cool places.

On this side of Canggu, you will also find Finns Beach Club, a beachfront club with an infinity pool, daybeds, bars and the waves of Berawa right in front of you.
