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.

Vancuver Island Black Bear Hunt (1 bear) Canada
The black bears on Vancouver Island have been classified as a distinct subspecies because of their long time separation from the mainland population. Our bears are all black with no color phases, yet, approximately 50% will have a white patch of varying sizes on their chest. Skulls and bodies are typically blockier than their mainland cousins and many of the bears we take will break the 7’ square mark. The terrain within our vast hunting area varies greatly from steep and rocky logging areas to lush tidal flats along the ocean. All of our hunts are spot and stalk since baiting is illegal in BC. Your experienced guide will be with you at all times, both to ensure your safety, and to inform and advise you on the habits, age, size and sex of each of the many black bears you will see.

Mule Deer/Whitetail Hunt 2019 Canada
Always a welcome addition to an elk or goat hunt, concentrating exclusively on mule deer has it's own rewards. Hunting bachelor bucks early in Sept or late season bucks during the rut in Nov produce excellent trophies. Very few experiences compare to a high alpine hunt for mule deer. "High, wide & handsome" not only describes the deer, but also the hunting country. Two on One Guide available $3500 per hunter

Spring Black Bear Hunt '20 Canada
Our goal is to take six hunters each season on a 1-on-1 or 2-on-1 basis. This will keep pressure to a minimum and provides a more personalized hunt with the guide outfitter as your guide. This is a great hunt for excellent bears. The days are long and there are bears of all colours and sizes. The main method for hunting these big bruins is "spot and stalk". Allan has had great success this way and nothing is more exciting than harvesting a bear by this method. We hunt rifle or bow on approximately 3,700 square miles of area, in central British Columbia, Canada, giving us plenty of habitat to find bears. We like to keep our groups small, booking four hunters at a time, but will make exceptions for larger groups, if requested by the hunters. Bowhunters can arrange to have a bowhunting-only camp. Hunts are based on two hunters to one guide. One-on-one hunts or longer hunts are available. Please contact us to discuss your options. 7 day hunt. 1 day in/out, 5 days hunting. This is a fantastic spot and stalk hunt. You cannot go wrong. (Larger groups or non-hunters can be accommodated) Price DOES NOT include: Hotel accommodation in Williams Lake prior to or after the completion of the hunt. (This is sometimes necessary and advisable. Due to the remoteness of our camp, we do not pick up clients for afternoon or evening flights. They will need to overnight in Williams Lake and we will pick them up in the morning and then make the trip out to camp during daylight hours.) $3000, second bear $1000 We would be willing to assess each request to see if we felt capable of fulfilling a disabled hunters needs.
