2017 Season Begins

2017 Season Begins
We begin the season with my new rig in Morice Project. First stop Collins Lake. (Due to the weather and its effect, we are two months behind schedule this year already.)

Bigfoot Gifting



We often hear about people leaving gifts of food out in the woods for Bigfoot. It happens quite regularly in the United States. You have to remember though, that we are not in the United States.

Our laws are different. In British Columbia, it is against the law to feed wildlife. You can face a stiff penalty up to $100,000, or a year's jail time for the first offence, and up to double that for a subsequent offence. This may have been updated since I last looked in to it. At any rate, penalties are stiff and rightfully so.

There are reasons why we have these laws in place. Wildlife will become habituated to humans. Always coming to look for food (an easy handout) rather than foraging for their normal foods. They become dependent on humans, in order to survive. This is not in the best interest of the animals. It can have some very detrimental effects. This also brings about conflicts between animals and humans, as well as with pets.

Forget about leaving gifts of food. The forests are loaded with natural food sources!

When you think about it, much of our food has been contaminated in some form or another. Herbicides, pesticides, other chemicals, (human DNA) genetic modifications, and added harmful ingredients. Why pass that along to the animals?!
