The blueberry's are right by Pitt lake.
Pitt Lake & the valley behind it, goes all the way to the backside of Whistler.
From the north end of Pitt Lake, you can hike along logging roads & get to Whistler, but there is no way to get a vehicle back there.

There is a hot spring back there that someone has turned into a couple of hot tubs. They used forms and concreted 2 pools, One drains into the next one.
The first one you could cook in, the second one is usually perfect but there is also a glacier fed river right there so if you start to cook yourself or you need to add cold water to the tubs you can.

There is a pics of the hot tub here Pitt Lake Hotsprings

I'm sure every bear in that roughly 40km long valley makes the trek for these blueberry's, they are the size of a quarter & they taste incredible.
I feed them to my neighbors dog, she'll keep eating them until I stop feeding her & my cat is dead now but he would eat them as well.

I would love to hit a cow, there just isn't that many wild Rockey mountain cows running around. I'd be havin' steak tonight.

Damn you really see moose? How far north are you? I'm just north of the center of the state and I've never seen one. Fucking deer jump out at me all the time of course. Fuckers. I've never hit one but holy fuck for close calls and some pro-level swerving.

Dude, trust me you would NOT love to hit a cow at speed. You might consider yourself lucky to be alive if you did. Depending where you live you might also be responsible for reimbursement to the owner of said dead cow to the tune of many thousands of dollars.

I understand what you mean, if I was driving a Mazda Miata ya I'd be toast, but I drive a LARGE lifted Dodge 2500 with a BIG bush bumper & a hydraulic tailgate that weighs a lot.
There is no way it could make it up on my windshield it would either instantly become hamburger or go underneath my truck.
Then I would lower the tailgate back it underneath the carcass lift it on in & bring it to a friends who has a farm & chop that fucker up.

The only evidence would be a stain on the road.

mmm, steak.

That truck would be toast. I witnessed a full size F350 hit a cow at 70mph. It obliterated the truck whole front end got pushed back 14 inches, mangled the engine, radiator, and caused the tranny to drop. Cow survived and just sat there basically ripped in two mooing till the state troopers showed up and put three slugs in its head.

Cow>Vehicle. It's just like when my parents idiot neighbor hit the Amish horse and buggy. Horse won.

I live in grand rapids. I've only seen a couple around here, but I spend a lot of time over in the Grand Marais area where you see them a lot more often.

I have a Buckstop bumper. I just looked to see if it would hold up or crumple.
Found this on their website.

I have a request....I put a Buckstop bumper on my 2001 Dodge in 2008, I have since hit three mule deer and an elk. Neither the bumper or the truck have a scratch, but, could you guys start building an accessory front license plate frame? This bumper just slams the critters to the ground, but they keep bending my license plate!!! Best investment I have ever made on this truck. Thanks!

My truck>hamburgers
