I am a very proud lifelong BC resident. From my very earliest memories I knew I was a hunter. Being raised in a wonderful hunting family allowed me to live this dream to the fullest and enjoyed a terrific guiding career in BC, NWT and Alberta.
I am a husband, father, son, brother, friend and an admitted workaholic. Aside from guiding I have enjoyed many careers in forestry, construction, home building, renovations and currently I work at a mine in NW BC and loving it.
Like many, I have grave concerns for BC. Our wildlands, watersheds, wildlife and hunting have reached a tipping point in BC and my personal goal is to help all BC residents understand what has transpired in this beautiful province and help any way I can to reverse the current trends. I understand the problems overwhelming this province and with the hard work of many, I believe hunters can promote change and shape a future where everyone can enjoy British Columbia the way it was meant to be. Beautiful.
I have been an outdoor enthusiast my entire life. In addition to hunting & fishing personally, I am also a licensed hunting guide and trapper. For the past 5 years, I have been the head guide for Wild Coast Outfitters, leading clients through the punishing endeavor that is Mountain Goat hunting on the northwest coast in British Columbia. This fall, I am looking forward to the challenge of fall guiding in the Northwest Territories. During the winter months, I operate a trapline in the Okanagan, British Columbia specifically targeting the overpopulation of predators in the area.
I have an amazing wife and family, the father of 5 daughters. I am a volunteer soccer & basketball coach, and an active member sitting on the Board of the Shuswap Youth Soccer Association. I am looking forward to an upcoming hunting adventure in New Zealand with my 16 year old daughter, and hunting & trapping partner.
Denise has been a lifelong resident of BC, born in Nelson, BC. She brings to the board an extensive experience in working in a number of sectors as a financial administrator. Although not a hunter, she has always had a passion for the outdoors and wildlife.

I am the product of a long lineage of hunter, trappers, fisherman and outdoor heritage, born and raised in B.C. following a family migration from Manitoba where living off the land was a way of life more than a hobby. As long as I can remember being outdoors has always been a priority for me, from hunting whitetails and elk in the Kootenay’s to moose on the Yukon border, from urban and nuisance trapping for the Fish & Wildlife branch to Salmon fishing the rivers and oceans.
Retired after 40 years in the lumber industry it is now time to pursue my dreams and become even more a part of what B.C. has to offer in our diminishing wilderness.
This past November I became very concerned about the state of our wildlife in the areas I frequent and was inspired to start petitioning our Government to make change on our inadequate wildlife management policies as a single voice of one. It was then I was introduced to the founders of Hunters for B.C. Upon learning of that their goals held the same values and desire to make change for the betterment of Wildlife as my own were. Without hesitation I decided to jump right in and do my best to support the group and as a result have become a proud director with a dedicated team of great people who are willing to fight for and represent the outdoors people of our Province.
And thanks to all the members and the efforts of Hunters for B.C. I believe that we now have a chance to restore the balance to our wildlife and it’s habitat, and our resources that manage them back to the levels sustainability like they once were not only for myself, but for everyone and generations to come.
Born in 1961 in Victoria, I lived on the south island till 1997 when I moved with my wife to the interior. I have been very passionate about hunting my entire life & at age 13 purchased my first coon hounds. That one decision to raise those dogs set me on a course that would last 45 years.
Following those hounds over all those years took me to some pretty amazing places. I have hunted all species that call BC home but my true passion will always be predators.
I grew up on a cattle farm in Armstrong, BC. Went to UBC after high school and achieved a forstry degree with a minor in wildlife management. Worked all over Coastal BC for 3 years after finishing UBC, completed requirements to become a Profesional Forester and then moved to the Interior and started my own consulting business. I have done that ever since. 30+ years working in the forest industry all over BC, primarily in planning, development and operations but have a broad and diverse background in a number of areas. I currently reside in Sun Peaks and have two teenage daughters. I am a very avid hunter but also spend a lot of time fishing, mountain biking and downhill and Nordic sking. I ran a trapline when I was younger and have also tried my hand as a guide-outfitter. My life largely revolves around the outdoors. I have found myself very frustrated with the crash in ungulate populations in this Province over the last 10 years. My goal in working within BC Interior SCI is to try and bring about change in wildlife management to attempt to bring back ungulate populations to where they have historically been.
