Personal Information

Communication and understanding between a client and hunting guide is essential for the client's safety and success. It is important for us to know if you have any medical conditions, allergies or dietary preferences. Your hunting guide will also need to know the limitations to your physical abilities. Throughout your hunt, make your guide aware of your comfort level. Your guide is there to work with you.

We pride ourselves on having some of the most professional, hard working and conscientious BC hunting guides in the business.

Our high percentage of repeat clientele each year can be directly attributed to the dedication and commitment of our guides.

Trophy Preparation

Black Bear, Cougar & Wolf - Once an animal has been harvested the hide will be field prepped, bagged and frozen. Because these hunts are a short duration of 5 to 7 days, fleshing and salting is not applicable. All that is required for transportation of the hide through customs is a US Fish & Wildlife form, a guide declaration form, both of which we will provide, and the hunters valid non-resident hunting license and species tag. If the client does not wish to transport the hide with him/her we can arrange for shipping to their home address or to a taxidermist of their choosing at an additional expense.

Grizzly, Roosevelt Elk, & Mountain Goat - If time permits these hides will be fleshed and salted prior to transport.
