    New to Canada and Hunting Big Game

    Hi Guys,
    I moved here (Port Coquitlam) from the UK in February. I have already joined a range and have a bow, which I have been practicing with a lot. I am currently going through my CORE course and aim to have my license all sorted ready for the start of September. I used to hunt quite a bit in the UK but only for small game such as rabbits, hares and fox.
    I'm wondering if anyone would allow me to join them on a hunt or two. Not necessarily to hunt myself but to watch and learn the processes involved.
    I thank you in advance for taking the time to read this and look forward to hopefully hearing back from someone.
    Thanks,

    Ali

    i used to live in poco you cant hunt there but there are lots of places to watch and study deer and bear activity and start to figure out animal habits and how to sneak up on them.

    Hey Ali,

    I'm in Burnaby and moved here from Wales a few years ago. Welcome to the site

    I'm not much of an archer but if you ever fancy coming along while I go out with the rimfire for birds and bunnies, let me know.
