OWING to its immense areas of fores: and mountain, British hnc remained a Elronshoirfor'the wilder terms of big came, which at one time were mrly iuraerous also in Wyoming and Mion- tans but which have practically dis- appeared in the United States, owing to the advance of settlement and in- .ufficient gams protection. The heavy snowfall which'makes the ten-thou- peaks inaccessible in winter is the natural refuge of the zrlzzlr bear, the mountain sheep and Sie mountain and heads which are three of the most prized .trophies of the bis game in the untrodden forests of the Kootenays and the Cassu-r district the great antlered last of the prehistoric ranges undisturbed except for the Solder spirits who with pack and canoe and come upon'him unawares. The moose at Britiah Columbia tit claimed as being the largest in North America. They are especially numer- ous in the northern'Interior of the province; they have a particular lik- ing for the banks of the Findlay and Liard rivers: Excellent bunting con be had in the vicinity of Atlin, and also of Cassiar, north east of Quesne! As the moose was protected the Kootenay district for a time, the animal Is again becoming numer- there. Hunting tbe moose is one the most.attractive of sports, and bappy is the hunter who succeeds in one of these antlered mon- of the forwt. Not less fascinating than the moose ia the caribou, of which there are two .varieties, the woodland and the bar- nn ground caribou. The caribou develops to its greatest she at Cas- Not long ago an entry from pla-a won the gold medal at an in Vienna. Glacier, Athal- mer (on the Kootenar Central Kail- Revelstorte, and CrauDroob are pood points from which to start in search of caribou. Hunting districts in Lillcoet can be reached from Ash- crloft and Lytton. Colombian or coast deer are found all along tha west coast of British Columbia as far east as the Cascade! Range and aii through the Crows Neat-Pass. British Columbia has in 'increasing number of mule deer, A variety also got a sold medal prilw at the Vienna exhibition.! Those deer are found over whole of the interior of the province, but there are some spots which are more j congenial to them than others; they! are moat plentiful in the Lillooet dis- trict. White tailed deer abound in East Kooteaay. The bighorn or rocky mountain sheep makes Its home in the fast- nesses of the Canadian PaciBc Rocky Mounratns, A bighorn is counted upon as one of the most valued prizes a hunter can obtain, for It is very difficult to gnt within shooting range. The bighorn is of a sus- picious, timid natnret and can travel as far over the mountain peaks in a few minutes SB a hunter can go in two -hours. Epicures say that the flash of the bighorn is most de- licious of the world's game. Its massive horns make a beautiful orna- ment. The best ground for hunting the is that portion of the LlUooet district roughly described as being north and south of the bridge at Chllcoten River and east and west of the Fraser River at ChHeoe Lake. The town of Lillooet Is reached by stage from Lytton, Clinton or A.SU- croft Michel and Goldeo are good points from which to reach the Kootenay sheep country. The star country Is easy of access. Amongst giant peaks of the Rockies wo find the, home of the Rocky Mountain goat He is clad in a coat of eoft fluffy white, Is fast and fearless IB his motions, and can travel Seetiy over precipices (vhere man could not attempt to climb. As a fighter the goat is wonderfully brave and can use his sharp horns to great advantage, for himself and de- struction for the dog that faces him. The sportsman visitor to British Columbia will find a delightful cli- mate and genera! environs which will appeal favourably to him. Guides can be easily procured. The Canadian Pacific Railway gives a splendid service to the most con venlent starting and outfitting points. The gams is protected by excellent laws, and the guides, who are expert packers, are themselves keen sports- men and familiar with the of the animals they help to hunt In addition to the game already mentioned the hunter in British Co lumbla may chance to have a shot at panther, elk, wildcat, antelope or wolf.
