I don't believe we've met. When I travel up that way I sometimes stop there on Wye road to visit the elder Nemetchek family. I typically head north up to the Athabasca area but have also been southeast of you to shoot gophers and over at Lloyd to shoot/plink with Ian M. and his friends. Last few trips up there I spent a fair bit of time on the Alta/B.C. border just north of Peace River chasing muledeer (archery) and then over by Slave lake (Martin Hills I think) looking for bears and also near Calling Lake chasing whitetail. Mostly though I just wreck 4-wheelers and slog through muskeg. I haven't been lost yet but I did spend a few hours walking out after dark when the winch on the Polaris ate the cable on a pull through muskeg on the Old Peace River Trail (lots of mosquitos after dark).

I also stop down to Richard Grave's place when I get up there, he's got a fine family and is a decent man. I did have to park my rental mini-van out of sight at his place, he's a little fussy about girly vehicles being in plain sight on the farm (it was the only vehicle left to rent at the airport).

Its really odd that he has customers dealing with him from all over North America....but I've never tried nor know very little about the product.
I do know he doesnt make 20 Calibre bullets unless something has changed.
Yup he makes them now .jack

Alberta hunting

The hunting in Alberta is becoming more difficult with every year that passes with the large influx of people.
In case readers dont know, Alberta is all about oil and thats created an economy like I'd never imagined.
I think Edmonton has doubled in size in the last 10 years
My acreage ten years ago was worth $ 175,000 and now its somewhere around $ 850,000
Farmland is being subdivided and lots of the quarters are being sold individually for huge dollars to people who are working in the oil patch.
They're talking about making Alberta a pay to hunt province where the landowner will be charging money to whom ever hunts on his land.
The crown and government lands look like ant hills with a network of winding trails to access oil lease sites.
I've hunted every part of Alberta and its amazing how the wild game still flourishes here.
We've got coyotes packs living in downtown Edmonton and Calgary parks.
The outfitters secure alot of land for their customers who pay $6,000 to hunt deer that are being run down by heavy traffic anyways...
Resident Big game hunting is on a draw system for some elk, all moose, and all antelope
I've been trying to get an antelope license for 6 years.
I like hunting coyotes because it affords me alot of action everytime I go out and nobody cares that I shoot them.
