British Columbia Black Bear Hunt, Day 1

Today, I set off on of what will serve as both my first springtime black bear hunt, as well as my first trip to British Columbia, Canada. Because of the destination, getting to camp, which is near Tatla Lake, involves multiple travel days; hence the reason today’s journey ends in Vancouver. The initial leg is from Washington Dulles International Airport (Northern Virginia) to Dallas/Ft. Worth (Texas), where I transferred to my connecting flight bound for Vancouver International Airport. After landing in Vancouver, I cleared Canadian Customs and attained my luggage and firearm, a CVA Scout in .35 Whelen, and proceeded to register the firearm (i.e. have the appropriate forms filled in, signed and stamped, after paying the required fee, of course), then headed to the hotel, where I’m going to be overnight.
