Shane Buchanan (Dec 11, 1972- June 13, 2013)

"No dream was too big in a land larger than life for a man larger than life"

Born and raised in Canada’s North, Shane Buchanan guided all over the Yukon, NWT and Northern BC, hunted his whole life (he went on his first sheep hunt at age 5) and spent his early years on a trapline.

Moon Lake Outfitters - British ColumbiaShane grew up in family of hunters and entrepreneurs within a few miles of our outfitting concession in the small community of Carcross, historically known as Caribou Crossing. Shane was a pilot as well as a second generation professional taxidermist and owner of the Whitehorse based, business Northfork Taxidermy. After operating Ruby Range Outfitters from 1999-2002, Hanna and Shane acheived their dream of having their own hunting area with the purchase of Moon Lake Outfitters in 2008.  He is the proud father of Axel (2001) and Oskar (2003), two boys who share their fathers humour, smile and love of the outdoors.


Shane was a brilliant storyteller with an incomparable sense of humour.  He made friends easily with his smile, laugh and solid approach to every situation and was one of the funniest people we have all known.  Shane was a mentor, entertainer and the sturdiest of shoulders to lean on.  His calm and his assessment of any matter were reassuring to the many who sought his advice.  He lent his time without hesitation, the first to help and the last to leave.

Were a million words will never fully describe one can only conlude that Shane was simply "The Best".
