Breaking it Down, Every Step of the Way
Alberta is one of the few jurisdictions in North America seeing a growth in the number of hunters. A lot of people speculate the increase comes from an interest in local food, with hunting being a way to ethically source your own protein. But that brings a big learning curve: new hunters, especially from urban areas, typically don’t have a network of family and friends to help them learn.
