About hunting in British Columbia
British Columbia is a province rich in wildlife and hunting history. The province is almost one million km2 (385,000 miles2) and home to 18 of the North American 30 big game species. Since the mid 1800’s, the world’s hunting fraternity has known that BC was home to some of the world’s most magnificent big game populations. From mountain-tops to valley bottoms, rivers and lakes to grasslands and lush forests, BC has quality habitat for wildlife in which to thrive. This helps produce quality big game populations throughout the province. In BC guide outfitters are licensed with the exclusive rights to guide non-resident big game hunters in their specific territory. Therefore, they have immense knowledge of the wildlife populations where they guide. All outfitters are insured and bonded. Most outfitters are members of the Guide Outfitters Association of BC (GOABC) and follow a Code of Conduct. We hope you “Book Your Hunt” with a GOABC member and your hunting dreams come true.

Northern B.C. Elk 2x1 Hunt '20 Canada
There is nothing quite like hearing the bugle of a mature bull elk as the first rays of light break over the horizon. Elk hunting during the rut is extremely addictive and one of the most action packed hunts you’ll ever experience. Our area holds a good number of elk and seeing multiple bulls in a week is not uncommon. Elk hunts are 10 days in length and can either be conducted 2 on 1 or guided 1 on 1. The season runs from Sept 1 to Sept 10 in our area so the elk see very little pressure. Elk must be 6 point on one side and we target mature bulls in the 280” to 320” range. The days are fairly long at this time of the year so hunting is done primarily in the mornings and evenings when the elk are most active. Accommodations for the hunt will either be the main lodge or a remote cabin. Transportation and recovery of harvested animals during the hunt will be by ATV. Method of take is rifle, muzzleloader or bow If you’re looking for the heart pounding thrill of chasing big elk in peak of the rut, please contact us for available dates and get ready to experience everything we have to offer. Please note that we cannot control the weather. We will do everything possible to get you out hunting on schedule, but please be patient if adverse weather conditions delay charter flights. The pilots are only concerned with your safety. *Add on Black Bear for $180 U.S. license plus $1,500 U.S. trophy fee.

Wolf Hunt Canada
Wolf hunting is mainly done over bait. The blinds have comfortable seating and heat which is awesome on those cold winter days. Bait sitting is done for 4 hours in the morning and 4 hours in the evening. This hunt is 7 days long and unlimited tags are over the counter. It is suggested that at least 2 tags are purchased for a hunt like this. Often, if the wolves are hitting the bait stations, they come in packs and show up daily giving ample opportunities for the hunter. Although we can hunt wolves here year round the bait stations are best from January until mid of March. Shots will be 120 to 250 yards and an accurate rifle is a must for this hunt. Flying in and out of Aniham Lake BC is the preferred airport for this hunt. It's only 1 ½ hours away. We are offering Moose, Mule Deer and Trophy Black Bear hunts to wheelchair bound hunters an now has added the ability to hunt Cougar and Lynx to the list of to do's for avid disabled hunters.

Spring Black Bear 2 on 1 Hunt Canada
Includes 1st black bear, wolf and fishing, $1500 trophy fee for 2nd black bear Spring hunting methods include 4×4 from base camp or on foot. Black bear can be hunted on any fall hunt on a trophy fee basis. High Success Spot & Stalk Black Bear Hunting In BC baiting bears is illegal, but we aren’t one to complain. Our black bear hunts are all spot and stalk. We know it’s not uncommon for baited bear hunts to be 100%, but why not do a spot and stalk hunt that is 100 times the excitement with the same success on 6 foot or better bears? If a big black bear is what you are looking for then spring (late May-mid June) is the time to come up to Northern BC. In the springtime the bears have just emerged from the den and are hungry for green grass. The roadsides and south facing cutblocks is where they will be found making this a hunt that anyone regardless of age or physical ability will enjoy. In addition to the concentration of good high quality feed, the bears are also in the rut in the spring and we see big boars at this time of year that we rarely see at any other time of the year. We are on a 2 bear limit and most hunters will kill a 6 foot or better bear, with several going 7 foot plus. Having just emerged from the den the bears still have their full winter coats at this time of year. Our bears are generally all black with many of them having the classic white “V” on their chest. Color phase bears range from cinnamon to a dark chocolate brown. Color phase harvest rates vary year to year, but overall our black bear harvest average is 10% color phase. A deposit of 33% is required to book a trip. A 2nd deposit of 33% plus license and tag funds are due: April 1st for Spring Hunts June 1st for Fall hunts. The remaining balance is due upon arrival in camp. Final payment must be in cash, certified cheque, or wire transfer*. Personal checks will not be accepted as final payment and your hunt will not start until the hunt is paid for in full.
