Hot shots

Photographic memories of great days afield and on the water

Want to share a photo of your fishing and hunting accomplishments? Post it on our Trophy Wall, along with a good story, and we’ll highlight our favourites here.

4Steve Primrose

One Sunday in July, Steve Primrose and his wife went golfing. After 18 holes, they hit Saskatchewan’s Lake Diefenbaker, where his wife landed this beauty of a walleye. As Primrose notes, “Who says fishing in the heat of the day is no good?”

5Sean McClelland

Delaware, Ontario’s Sean McClelland started hunting wild turkeys three years ago, and he shot a jake during his very first season. This past spring, he crossed paths with this beautiful gobbler and accomplished his goal of harvesting his first tom.

2Kimberly Slugowski

Kimberley Slugoski needed a quick shutter finger to capture this memorable photo during a duck hunt on a misty Manitoba morning. In Slugoski’s words, the picture shows “Sara sitting proud while Ember takes the plunge.” Good dogs!

3Justin Goodman

Manitoba university student Justin Goodman spent more time bowhunting than studying last fall during reading week—and he has no regrets. After taking this big white-tailed buck in the southeast of the province, he considers it time well spent.
