Poachers, Cranberries & SnowshoesBook - 2003
...a collection of stories about the life and times of an Alberta Fish and Wildlife Officer (game warden, fish cop, fish fuzz, fins and feathers). All the events took place from 1963 through to 1995, between Strathmore to the south and High Level in the north. Where appropriate, names have been changed, if only to by pass any ill-conceived lawsuits and to avoid embarrassment to anyone, especially me. When you start out as a game warden, it always SOUNDS interesting, but I had no idea of the problems, compromising situations, and the pure adrenalin rushes it would produce over a span of thirty-two years. A boat chase. An out of control aircraft. Bears after dark. Flying lead in court. A human anchor. A sting. A snared bear. Flaming Nostrils. Ticklish Fish. Cantankerous hunters. Obnoxious poachers Chicanery and devilment abound throughout when animals and people mix.
