Archery Goose Hunt in North Carolina

Matt Sherwood takes his son Taylor on his first goose hunt

You may have seen photos in an earlier posting; pictures of Matt Sherwood with huge 50+ pound Carolina catfish.  This time Matt shared photos of he and his son on a fall goose hunt.  Utilizing a portable ground blind, the geese were taken at mere feet from the hunters.  Matt said Taylor was having so much fun he struggled to remain quiet while dad waited for a clean bow shot. 

They say fewer and fewer kids are becoming hunters.  By the look of the grin on his face, I would bet that Taylor Sherwood will have a hunting license in his pocket for the next, oh, eighty years or so.  Good Job Matt!  Keep those photos coming.

Riverside Lodge in Manitoba, Canada

Black Bear, Whitetail and Waterfowl Hunting in Manitoba

Although I have not met face-to-face with Gildas Paradis, he is one of those people you quickly feel you’ve known for years.   I stumbled onto Gildas’ website (http://www.huntriverside.com/) while searching for black bear guides in Manitoba.  I emailed him with some questions and that began an email dialogue.  I found him to be as warm and personal as the words written on his website inferred. 

Gildas and his wife Joanne operate the lodge and outfitting business year round.  Fishing, guided hunts for bear, deer and waterfowl and ensuring their guests are comfortable and well fed, is certainly a full time job.  After viewing their site and conversing with Gildas, I wouldn’t hesitate to book a trip to their lodge.  I know Gildas would gladly supply references for whatever activity interests you.

If you like to look at photos of big deer and bear, and see bird harvests as large as “the good ole days”, check out their website (http://www.huntriverside.com/).
