Story by Aaron La Bumbard

Finishing the last leg of the 10 hour plus drive to the Purcell Wilderness Area in southeastern British Columbia, I occupied my mind by remembering the four previous hunts I had shared with Brent Dubois of A/Z Outfitters.

But, even with such quality hunting to look forward to, I reminded myself that the real escape I hoped for was an adventure to top the last one.

I wanted an adventure to rival our 2009 hunt, in which Brent and I had taken a nanny and then spent three blizzardfilled days chasing an 180 class buck through knee-deep snow to no avail, or an adventure greater than last year’s trip, in which we had taken a nice billy and, in order to collect it, spent the night shivering in our rain gear deep in the mountains with only a bright fire to beat away the frost.Yes, it is the adventure that keeps me coming back to A/Z Outfitters and, as I pulled into Canal Flats, I couldn’t help but wonder
