Black Bear: May – June
Hunt with one of the top Black Bear operations in British Columbia. Their consistent harvest of extra large Black Bears, as well as, high density of color phase, has set them apart from the rest.
These Mountain Black Bear have some of the thickest coats in the world, due to hunting within weeks of the bears emerging from hibernation. Six to seven foot squared bears are harvested annually. Mature Bear skulls average 18-21 inches.
They strive for is 100% opportunity; therefore, all of the hunting territories offer Black Bear hunts. These hunts are offered in the spring or fall. Method of hunting is all spot and stalk (NO BAIT) and is sure to provide a heart pounding adventure. Multiple stalks occurring regularly.
Hunts are conducted from base camp and spike camps. Spring and fall hunts are available.
Moose: Mid August to mid November
British Columbia has been long known for it’s high density of Canadian Moose. All of these territories have excellent Moose hunting.
Sizes vary from camp to camp, as well as densities of the moose. Mature bulls range from 40 – 55 inches.
Being surrounded by over 200 lakes and 5 major river systems, they guarantee they have a Moose hunt for you. Either, early season spot and stalk, peak of the run, or late season migration hunts take place from either the base camp or one of the remote spike camps.
Hunters are transported by vehicle to remote locations or a truly remote river hunt.
Any age or physical ability can join this hunt. Recently we have added a hunt for Shiras Moose. The Shiras moose is found mostly in southwestern British Columbia, Canada around the Kootenay and South Okangan regions and down to the US border. The Shiras moose has the smallest body and antlers of any North American moose. The body color is a rusty yellowish-brown, with a pale brownish saddle.
Mountain Goat: August to October
Season starts from August 1st to October. The weather is usually stable and the goats’ coats are getting nice as fall sets in and provides us with the first frosty nights.
The Skeena and Rocky Mountains of British Columbia are well known for producing record book quality mountain goats. These goats range in size from 9” to 11” with a typical 100% opportunity. The reason for the great success on mountain goat hunts is the terrain. They hunt goats between 5,000 and 6,000 feet in elevation. In several locations, the hike to the tree-line is only 2 to 4 hours and the use of some cut trails make it quite manageable for most hunters in good physical condition.
The guides area also has some very remote goat hunting locations where the hike through the forest takes you to some ranges that have possibly never seen hunters before. These goat hunts are as physically demanding as one would expect but can produce some great trophy Goats! The Skeena and Rocky Mountains in our area have produced numerous excellent mountain goats over the past decade.
They have several locations that are recommend to seasoned hunters that are still in relative good shape but can’t do the steep climbs or bush-whacking grunts that most mountain goat hunts are so well known for. If you are not confident in your physical ability to do a goat hunt please give us a call and we will describe these “easier” locations in detail to you and let you decide if that could be right for you.
These majestic animals live between elevations of 5000 and 6000 feet . You will be picked up from Prince George or Smithers and transport you to a base camp to prepare for the hunt. In some cases you may go directly to the spike camp. From you and your guide will take your mountain tents and supplies and hike up to tree-line. Mountain goat hunting can last anywhere from 2 hours to 9 days, depending on the weather. To hunt mountain goats in Canada, the hunter need not be a marathon runner but should be in fairly good shape. The better your condition, the more you will enjoy your goat hunt.
They also have some great locations that lend themselves to combination hunts for goat, moose, grizzly bear, black bear and wolf.
Elk: September to mid October
The majestic royal elk has long been the ultimate trophy. Due to government enforced six point antler restriction, the herds and trophy quality have increased.
Hunt either the early season spot and stalk, peak of the rut, or late season migration. Any level of physical ability can enjoy this hunt. They have remote hunts off the river and private land hunts.
Elk hunting can be combined with some species. They now have some private land available for Elk and Deer hunts. They have tree stands and these areas hold good numbers of quality animals.
