Great Hunting Adventures: Volume I by Henry E. Prante 4.5 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 10 hours ago

GREAT HUNTING ADVENTURES This book is for those readers who want to live a hunter's adventures vicariously in the vast expanse of the awesome British Columbia, Canada wilderness... or perhaps those hunters who have experienced the great outdoors, hunting, fishing, wherever they live... and enjoy reading about other hunters' experiences and even re-living their own adventures... ?Who wouldn't enjoy the view from the top of the Yalakom Mountains, or the Ashnola region's glistening lakes where one can bump into a California bighorn ram, a mountain goat or mule deer among brilliant autumn colors reflected in mirror-shiny waters? ?Who wouldn't enjoy living, if only for a brief span, in the swamp and gorgeous water world of the Atlin, B.C. region where the largest of our moose roam? Or where mountain caribou and stone sheep often stand etched against an azure sky in unbelievably sharp detail? ?Who wouldn't enjoy a trip along the twisting and turning Coquihalla River as it winds its tortuous, churning course through deep canyons that gleam like molten silver in the light of a harvest moon? ?Who wouldn't love to ride a sure-footed saddle horse on a hunting trip and feel at one with nature? ?These were unforgettable experiences for me, bound together by the companionship of good partners. Indeed, while others may stop along our crowded highways to appreciate the scenery and nature - it is the hunter who truly lives the experience as he sits near a game trail and waits for his quarry. A hunter sees the life and death experience in its true perspective. ?He might observe a grizzly grazing in a meadow or digging for marmots or hear the bugle of a rutting bull elk, or the dry cough of a bull moose. ?He goes to sleep with the chorus of timber wolves singing him a lullaby, yet he also knows that the song probably means death for some creature unlucky enough to cross the wolves. It is all part of the cycle of life. For over 30 years I hunted in B.C. on countless trips through ...

British Columbia’s “River of No Return”: The Coquitlam River by Henry E. Prante Price verified 13 hours ago

Henry Prante, was a well-known crusader for the protection and preservation of the Coquitlam River, "It's unfortunate he didn't live long enough to see the Coquitlam River clean of pollution," said Port Coquitlam & District Hunting & Fishing Club director Al Grist. ''But I'm not sure that will happen in my lifetime either."(Later Al Grist had a fish hatchery named after him) Grist said Prante will be remembered for his love of the outdoors and the work he did to preserve the natural habitat for future generations before it be-came fashionable to do so. He said Prante played a major role in starting the Coquitlam River hatchery by bringing in the first lot of salmon eggs. "Henry was very keen on salmon," he said, "and the club still gives an annual salt water salmon fishing trophy in his name." Grist said the club membership discussed naming the spring release of 8,000 Coho salmon Henry Prante Day. (I am not sure if this ever happened though.) He was "quite astute and... brutal" when it came to protecting the environment, said Grist, recalling the club's fight to prove sedimentation in the river from sand and gravel operations that were killing salmon. Prante was Port Coquitlam and District Hunting and Fishing Club president in the 1970's when he would go to water outflows along the river at 2 a.m. to get water samples in a jam jar for lab testing. He also had a keen mind and a very thorough approach to problem solving. "When the Or Creek diversion was proposed; which supplies all of the water you see in the Coquitlam River; the figures on water flows and effects were coming out in both metric and standard measurements. ''He reduced the apples and oranges figures into one means of measurement. "It added up to the fact that the Coquitlam Dam was not adequate. So Hydro raised the dam by 10 feet. They now keep the water level down l0 feet lower than when Henry came out with what all those numbers meant and the danger to Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam residents of the dam ...
