Big Game Season in Northern British Columbia runs from August 1st through October 31st. Each hunt is 10 full hunting days, Custom length packages can be prepared (or arranged) for clients looking to hunt longer than 10 days for multiple species. This does not include traveling days. Hunting in early August are mainly Stone Sheep, however, the hunter can also collect Elk and Moose if the chance should arise. Elk and Moose season opens August 15th.
In our Northern British Columbia properties, the majority of our hunting is done on horseback with some hunting being conducted by boat and backpacking. We have a string of reliable horses, well adapted to the mountainous terrain. We have guides skilled at hunting game, handling horses, and caring for trophies, accompanies each hunter. All hunts are one on one.
In most cases, hunters and their guides operate from spike camps, cabins and/or tents away from base camp. This is accomplished easily with sturdy horses equipped with the best saddles and pack gear; allowing the hunter to cover more ground and increasing his chances of collecting a trophy animal.
