EDMONTON - Darcy Handy has been going to a once-untouched area of forest and wetland in northwest Alberta for more than 20 years to hunt, fish and trap and well remembers what it used to be like.
"We always used to see numerous caribou in that area, all the time," he recalls of his one-time hunting grounds southeast of Grande Cache.
"It's more like a wasteland," said Handy. "It's all cutblocks now, oil and gas roads everywhere. Big change from what it was 20 years ago."
