PSE’s Pedro Ampuero Red River Hunting
By Pedro Ampuero
This summer I went hunting with my dad to the Artic Red River in NWT, Canada.
We hunted hard for ten days, in which all we need was on our packs. It is an amazing feeling to spend more than a week with just your guide, a pack and your bow. You pack every morning the camp, and keep moving forward in search of rams. You don’t leave anything behind, no reason of looking back, just keep moving forward to discover new land. That feeling of freedom is probably what I liked most.
At the same time, the place is overwhelming. It is a rough landscape, with little more than rocks and grass, but so pure and wild, that makes it really beautifull and special.
We covered a lot of ground, both with our legs and also with the binos in search of the right ram and it all came together the last day of the hunt. An unreal feeling to see the ram rolling down after all the effort put behind..
It is the most beautifull hunt I have ever done. I could be writing about it for months! I dreamed about this hunt my whole life, and at the end it was even better than I had imagine. I hope everyone could try it one day.
Good luck all in the mountains!
