Frank Ritcey - Passion in the Pines

Forget fifty shades of gray. Our forests will be source enough for stories of lust and longing. That's according to Frank Ritcey of Kamloops BC.

Although Tennyson once wrote it is "in spring that a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love,' Ritcey says that in the wilds of BC, it's the fall that brings on these primordial urges.
At least amongst the large, hoofed mammals that call our hills home. Elk, moose, bighorn sheep, and deer will all be looking for love in a variety of ways as the fall plays out. Frank will guide us through this amorous autumn after the 8:00 o'clock news.

Frank Ritchey is an outdoor life enthusiast & the Provincial Coordinator for WildSafeBC.
