At the same time, his father and he started a taxidermy business. Lyle has spent quite a few years guiding because of his passion of the outdoors.

Lyle is an outdoor enthusiast and he strongly believes in the preservation of life and not the destruction. His wife, Josie, traveled halfway around the world to join him.

Frank Lloyd

My name is Frank Lloyd. I was born August 24, 1975 in Edmonton Alberta. I was raised in Hinton Alberta by Charlie and Louise Desjarlais. At the age of 10, I moved to Entwistle, where I spent the remainder of my years.

My first trapping experience was with my brother Charles shortly after we moved to Entwistle.  My Dad built taught me the traditional way of hunting as this was his main source of feeding our family, and by brother Charles taught me to snare coyotes as a way to protect our livestock.

In 1997, I went out with George Kelley, who taught me to hunt big horn sheep in the mountains. I continued working for him for 10 years as a wrangler and a guide. It was during this time that I met Gordy Klassen. George and Gordy taught me how to manage the wolf population to conserve other wildlife.

Since that time, I have been successful hunting and trapping. I have a deep respect not only for the land and the wildlife, but for the traditional teachings from my elders. I have been passing down these teachings to my 13 year old son who has been helping me since he was five. It is imperative that we pass these teachings on to future generations to ensure our children know how to live off the land.
