British Columbia Moose, Mule Deer, Big Horn Sheep and Bear

South-eastern British Columbia has long been a prime destination for outdoors folks due to its great scenery and it wide variety of animal species. But we also know of many outright crooks in this area- guys who make great promises and fail to deliver! Not so for this long term outfitter of ours. In this area you find: bighorns, mulies, Shiras moose, goat, various bears, elk and whitetails, plus mountain lion and bobcat!! So it is a prime location for a multi-specie hunt. However, this area is also rife with unethical outfitters, so we are especially careful in who will agree to book for in this area. This outfitter has repeatedly proven himself to be one of the best in that area. Our last client took his moose in 3 days, hunted mulies (took one of those too)—then fished! We are proud to represent him and offer you his hunts. One client of ours had this to say about his October hunt for moose and mulies:

“This is probably the very best of all the hunts I have been on! The outfitter stayed involved through-out the entire hunt and he made my satisfaction his first priority. I took a nice 47” Shiras moose and a very respectable 4X3 mulie. After the hunt they continued to entertain me, taking me all over for sightseeing and game watching. I highly recommend him!.” Kenny S.

Said another reference: “Runs an excellent camp and hunting operation-camp staff remained enthusiastic and focused on their efforts throughout the hunt. I was pleased with the hunt from start to finish. A highlight was the lovesick bull moose chasing the poor cow around the pond in front of camp-and also spotting so many sheep on the mountains-last day was as good as the first!’

The outfitter has 25 years experience in this area and he has capable guides and good horses. He has a number of camps, some accessible by road, some only by horseback. Camps are log cabins, comfortable and clean, but a bit rustic. They have showers, electric or propane lights, beds with foam mattresses and the other necessities. Elevations are 4,000 to 8,000 feet. Sheep hunters need however to be prepared to backpack, spike out and rough it. This area has one of BC’s largest bighorn populations- but hunts are very physical and expect to be challenged. Book sheep hunts at least 2 years in advance! Rams must be full curl to be legal. You hunt with both a spotter and a guide. Success is close to 100%. And if you want a nice mountain goat hunts are nearly 100% success! Best hair is after Oct 1st. Also, sheep and goat can be combo’d with other species. And they have good success on black bear and also on grizzly bear!!

You will need to bring a sleeping bag and a day or back pack, depending on specie hunted and type of hunt. Hunting is done spot and stalk. Depending on your wishes and physical capabilities, you will either hunt by horseback, or from quads and pick-ups. Area has a wide variety of game, and a late season mulie migration showed one client some deer in the 28” or better class- but smaller is more normal. We like the moose/mulie combo a bunch. Elk hunting is normally good also, with the area being a 6 point minimum on one side! Opportunity is generally in the70% to 80% class. Calling is a favorite way to hunt. His archery hunts should be very productive as well. These elk tend to have a lot of mass. His Shiras are second to none- and no draw! His mulies are good. Whitetails are harder to find. Mulies range from average to excellent, with cold weather helping. During the mulie migration we understand you may sometimes see 40 to 50 or more deer in a day! And all have guaranteed tags-no draws to worry about. Just book and go!
