What is conservation?

Our populations ,from urban to rural, have an impact on our natural world - funding shortfalls are everywhere.

Wildlife and habitat need funding too.

A past event was a fundraiser for our wild places.

Thanks to @fishingsturgeon and @jurassicclassicbc , who put funds back to these places we all enjoy.

This is what conservation looks like.

An experience in the outdoors has many benefits - Unplug from the daily connection in our digital world, spending time with family and friends, while providing a true organic field to table...

A simple but misunderstood activity that has so many benefits to the mind, body and soul.

A solid read heading into deer season...We're all guilty of it. We see a hunter with mismatched camo with an old single-shot 12-gauge. And he's sporting his deer he just harvested on the back of his old truck. It's a doe or more than likely a smaller buck. But he's happy, and grinning from ear-to-ear like he just killed the new world record! So you laugh and joke with your buddies as he goes by. While leaning against your brand new truck, in your name brand matching camo. But have you ever stopped to think that maybe the deer on the back of his truck means a lot more to him than just big antlers.... maybe he's a third shift blue collar worker at the local steel mill, just trying to pay his bills and keep gas in his old truck. Maybe he don't have the fancy game cameras and big food plots that you have. Or the big fancy hunting blinds, that cost more than his old truck. Maybe he's happy because he finally didn't have to work this weekend. So he decided to go hunting on the little piece of land that he's hunted since he was a boy, with the gun that his dad gave him when he turned 12 years old. More than likely he's not hunting to kill the next World Record. He could care less about the antlers. But what he does care about is putting food on the table for his family at home, and knowing that they're going to eat good for now. And that my friends will put a smile on any true sportsmans face. So good luck to all the hunters out there with the rest of your season. Just remember this, support each other and be happy for each other, no matter how big their harvest is, because to some folks it means a lot more then the size of the antlers.

Circle of life.

We are a part of nature- and without her elements, there is no life.

Time to test rain gear before you head out on your next adventure.

In just a few days, hints of autumn are at the door step.

Crisp mornings, later sunrises, shorter days.

What will autumn bring you?

More picturesque landscapes, time to harvest from the garden or field, or time to explore and exercise self subsistence?

The serenity and simpleness of connecting with nature on a deeper level is something that cannot be explained.

Hike a trail, walk a beach, pick berries, or take a kid fishing.

Watch your troubles melt away, as you carry on a generational tradition.

What ever you choose, share it with us and inspire the next.

Welcome to our Campfire.

Mountain top sunrises donโ€™t come easy - hours of dark climbing and ridiculous early starts equal an experience and a refreshing of the soul.

Adventurer, Hunter, Gather, or Ironman athlete do the work reap the reward.

Itโ€™s the weekend- how are you enjoying the reward?

I went to his speech at Oceola with my son and it was amazing. Learnt so much and good techniques for talking with others who see hunting in a negative way.

When you come across a mesmerizing photo sometimes a further description is not required.

As cooler evenings are around the corner, time around a campfire is what brings us together.

Pull up a seat, we have a story to tell.

A theme of this week backpacking and a wild landscape.

You never know what obstacles you will encounter....

Water crossing or what is perceived as impassable terrain - there is always a way.

Isnโ€™t it odd what we find appealing to the eye?

After hours or days of torment - a simple object can brighten oneโ€™s day.

After the exhausting hike into the alpine, a flower can bring a smile to that stressed face.

The smile speaks volumes.

Achieve what you thought was unattainable- it always seems one step out of reach, but keep driving. The finish line is almost there.

Water brings life to all. Flora and fauna be depend on it.

We also use it for a transportation method.

Mechanical or human power - a river system provides access that would otherwise be unattainable.
