Never to be forgotten.

Mike and Don Farmer

The Farmers strike again! First bear hunt of the season and we still saw 32 bears… and even shwacked one of ’em! It was a wonderful time as always and a great break for Mike who is currently incarcerated under terms of employment and pre-maritals in England. Don will be back up in January ’09 for cougar so we’re excited to hook up with the Schneiders once again. Big thanks to our wonderful friends Darrell and the rest of the crew for their warm hospitality and genuine comraderie and of course the great hunting. Special thanks to Taylor Schneider for helping with the vittles, that’s how steak should always be!

To Darrell and Jesse

In May of 2004 a Farmer and his daughter came here to collect her first bear. With great warmth, honor, and patience were well greeted and within 2 days the task was completed. The Farmer clan will return again to claim more bears and revisit great friends.

I really appreciate all your patience and your effort you did for me. I am leaving very happy and anxious to repeat a hunt with you. You are an excellent guide and I am surprised of your professionalism and energy you put in the hunt. You have an excellent work team.

Thanks, Oscar


I just wanted to thank you so much for such a great bear hunt. Also I would like to thank Julie for all of the great meals. I am working on Bob about your Deer hunt offer, hope to see you in the fall.

Dear Darrell,

Ive been meaning to send you a note thanking you for the awesome trip. I had an incredible time and will never forget the wildlife we saw and or the experiences of the hunt. 

Thanks again,



We cant thank you enough for another wonderful trip to BC. The hunting was great. Your friendship was great. The lion just a bonus. You are a great person and that reflects in your girls. Taylor is quite the young lady /hunter. Anyhow, thanks for getting a city boy up the hill and to the prize. Could not have done it without you!! We will look forward to our next trip back to BC. Maybe less snow and I will fare a little better. 

Until next time

Woody and Dee Dee
