As 2018 winds down, it’s a great time to revisit our website’s top stories of the year. Highlights include catch-and-release science, big-buck secrets, black spot disease, pimping your hunt camp, new hunting, bowhunting and fishing gear, and more.
For the second year in a row, www.outdoorcanada.ca’s most popular story of 2018 came from our esteemed fishing editor, Gord Pyzer. In the piece below, he explains exactly how and why big fish are so critical to our fisheries. Hopefully, the article sparked a few campfire discussions and reminded us all to carefully return those precious trophy spawners.
