Bush Camps or Modern Amenities

The hunting grounds are vast wilderness areas including both foothills, mountains ranges, large river valleys as well as big lakes and boost some prime habitat for a wide variety of prime British Columbia big game species. Our main camps offer some great hunting right on the spot within close proximity of your accommodations. If you prefer to venture out into the more remote parts of the hunting areas, this is possible also, but will include horses, smaller cabins and sometimes even tented spike-camps. Our main camps are set up with modern amenities such as comfortable heated sleeping cabins, good dining facilities, showers and toilets. Outpost-camps are equipped with functional, well-kept cabins or tents. So if you are into roughing it, we can definitely arrange that, but if you like to get together with your buddies in main camp at night to talk about the hunt, that is possible also. Hunts out of our main camps are, depending on the area, normally conducted using trucks, ATVs or horses with the biggest part of the hunt being on foot for spot and stalk. Hunts out of our outpost-camps will be on horseback or on foot only. These hunts are usually more physically challenging, but you will reach more remote and untouched wilderness parts of the hunting areas. On our hunts in British Columbia, we cater to both rifle and bow hunters.

Depending on the species, hunt combination and/or client’s preference, we hunt different areas in different regions of the province. In our area in the far north of British Columbia right close to the Yukon border, our clients will explore the vast and remote wilderness on true horseback and backpack hunting adventures for huge Canadian moose, stone sheep and mountain caribou as well as mountain goat. In our area in north-eastern British Columbia, we will hunt for big mountain goats, Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep, large elk and Canadian moose as well as big black bears. This area has an abundance of very large grizzly bears as well, but unfortunately this hunt has been cancelled in all of British Columbia due to political reason for now. In our area in the south-eastern part of the province, we specialise in hunting big-bodied mountain lions, bobcats and lynx as well as wolves during the winter months in addition to the Shiras moose, elk, mountain goat, mule deer and Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep hunts conducted during the fall season.

Late Summer and Fall Hunts

The majority of our hunts in British Columbia take place in the late summer and fall during September and October when the elk and moose are in the rut. At this time of year, we also hunt for mountain goats, stone sheep, mountain caribou, Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep, deer and black bear. Most of our bear hunts however are conducted in the springtime in May and June. During this time of year, we can offer hound hunts for bears as well. In the wintertime during the months from December to March, we mainly hunt for cats and wolves. The mountain lion, bobcat and lynx hunts are hound hunts whereas wolves are hunted over bait, a hunt that takes a lot of patience, dedication and preparation. During the winter months, we even offer our hunters the opportunity to participate in a trapline experience with the local trapper while hunting for wolfs over bait.

The diversity of habitat in our areas as well as the location in different regions of British Columbia allows us to provide top quality single species as well as combination hunts. Our areas cover most of the big game species available in the province and hunters looking for trophy animals can expect excellent results. The great scenery combined with the many animal sightings keep these hunts very entertaining and the great trophy genetics in our areas make for some outstanding high quality big game hunting. Whether it is from a boat drifting down a river, on foot from a mountain top or on horseback checking vast wilderness areas, hunting rutting bulls in the valleys or goats, sheep and caribou in the mountains is an amazing experience with great rewards. An unbelievable experience that every hunter should have been a part of at least once!
