Hunts are conducted with one guide assigned to each hunter. Whether you are planning a “single species” or a “mixed bag” hunt, they have the equipment, professional staff and knowledge of the area to assist you in taking your trophies. Their broad background and experience in the outfitting and guiding industry helps to insures the success of your hunt. A solid outfitter with a great concession and who knows his game and who takes good care of Hunt Nation clients.

The hunting territory is located in central Yukon, 140 air miles north of Whitehorse. The country is magnificent, far away from civilization and accessible only by boat or plane. They work hard to make this a prime hunting area with its trophy wild game accessible to hunters world-wide.

img0123 They are the only permitted big game guiding company in this 7000 square mile area (approximately 4.5 million acres).  Using a variety of spike camps throughout the hunting area we are able to offer quality hunting for Stone Sheep, Yukon Moose, Mountain Caribou, Grizzly Bear, Black Bear, Wolf and Wolverine in the months of August, September, and October.  Also available are Spring hunts for   Grizzly and Black Bear and winter hunts for Wolf.  You will find unbelievable fishing in the many lakes and rivers throughout the hunting area.

Most of the rams in their hunting area are very dark, as dark as any Stone sheep that you will find in British Columbia. The trophy rams in their area average 38” and/or 9 years of age (they target 8+ year old animals). The outfitter tries to set a standard of harvesting only rams with the tip of at least one horn extending above the bridge of the nose. This requirement ensures that they consistently produce rams that are over a full curl, providing you with a top quality trophy. Success runs from 50% to 100% each season, but opportunity is usually 100%.


Their sheep area is not huge, but has an excellent population of sheep, and they tend to be fairly concentrated in well-known spots. The sheep country is vast with elevations from 4,500 to 7,000 feet. You will use horses but also be prepared to do some hiking to get into prime sheep country. The first 2 weeks of hunts generally produce more sheep sightings, as the animals move up high (where they are more visible) to escape the bugs. These early hunts also produce the highest success. The last 2 weeks of hunts usually result in fewer sheep seen, as the cooler weather pushes out the bugs and the sheep move down into the timber at lower elevations. As such, success is usually not as high, but these later hunts often produce the biggest rams of the season. This outfitter runs approx. 5 sheep camps per season. They will usually host 6-8 hunters per year. In 2023 8 sheep hunters took 6 rams, including the largest taken in the Yukon for the year.



Alaska/Yukon Moose are the largest moose in the world and are abundant throughout the hunting area, standing over 7 feet at the shoulder and weighing over 1800 pounds. It is not uncommon to see bulls with antler spreads over 65 inches.  The moose in our area average anywhere from 58 inches to 63 inches.

img0066 This moose country is filled with long valleys with numerous lakes. The big bulls are found anywhere from valley bottoms to high on the mountains with elevations ranging from 2,000 to 6,000 feet. Most of the hunting will be done using horses. They also use boats at camps located on lakes and rivers. In 2023 35 of 38 hunters took bulls and they averaged 61” with the largest measuring 69”.


This hunting area has an excellent population of Mountain Caribou. When the rut is underway we often see herds numbering over 50. Average trophy bull Mountain Caribou score between 375 to 390 Boone and Crockett, with many bulls scoring over 400 Boone and Crockett.


Caribou are generally found above timberline at elevations of 4500 to 6500 feet. The country is wide open with lots of opportunities for glassing and stocking big bulls. Most of the hunting will be done horseback from one of the base or spike camps.


They offer both spring and fall hunts for grizzly. Average size is 8 feet square, with the area producing several bears over 9 feet square.

Spring Bear hunts are conducted from a boat along the Pelly and Yukon rivers.  Method of hunting is spot and stalk.  Black Bears are numerous in many parts of our area.  50% color phase is the normal and all Grizzly hunters are able to harvest 2 Black Bears at no extra charge.


They can provide clients with cabin accommodations at 20 different locations throughout their hunting area. Camps are clean and comfortable. All camps are located in prime hunting areas accessible by horseback, boat or floatplane only. Backpack tents are used on some hunts when an overnight stay is required to make a hunt more successful.

Wall tents are used when we are hunting remote country where cabins are not available.
