Buzzard Coulee  |  May 2009
Finally I made it out to Saskatchewan to hunt for Buzzard Coulee. I hadn't been able to go last year before the snow, but I didn't want to pass up this opportunity to hunt for a Canadian fall. As it turned out this was pretty much the last weekend to go, as most farmers had started the ploughing / planting process already.
I met up with Mike Tettenborn at the airport and we shared the rental car and accommodation. We met up with David Gregory and Ian Nicklin from the ROM, and later with Rob Wesel and Mike Bandli.
We all hunted together for some of the time, but I mostly ambled along on my own. I hunted on the Canola and pea fields for the most part, but also tried to find some stones in the rougher portions of the Coulee and in the ditches and ravines lining the fields. Sadly, no luck there. On the fields I ended up finding about 15 pieces for a total of about 650g. After handing over half of my material to the landowner as part of our agreement to hunt on his property, I ended up with 12 beautifully crusted stones to take home.
