When Kristine MacDougall stepped down from her position as editor of Experience the Cowboy Trail and Kananaskis Country, we knew we had to find someone talented to replace her. We are thankful that we found Larry Thomas to fill the role of editor! Larry grew up cowboying, logging and fly-fishing across British Columbia. For the past three decades he’s called the southern Alberta foothills home.

Larry’s experience in photojournalism and editorial work will be an asset to our publication. After earning his masters degree in animal science and range/pasture management at the University of Saskatchewan, Larry began writing for the Canadian Cattlemen Magazine where he became associate editor and worked for over two decades. In recent years he worked with the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association and has also written and edited print, web and B2B materials for several entities through his small business.

He lives north of Millarville, just west of the Cowboy Trail, and continues to be involved in local land, water and growth management initiatives. Larry is a skilled fly-fisher and outdoorsman and loves exploring the backcountry of western Alberta. He and spouse Leslie raise horses and operate a small Haskap (blue honeysuckle) berry farm.
