glad you had a good time in bc.Its a great place to live.
The pine beetle is actually good for the moose,deer and other big game as gives better feeding areas,
Its replaced forest fires as a way of regenerating the land.
not everyone would share my opinion though
all the best
We were hunting with "Kei River" run by Andrew Renton they are about 40 minute drive from East London in the Eastern Cape,i shot 10 animals in 5 days and it was a management hunt package,Bloody wonderful.
