10-Day Mountain Caribou Hunt
ABOUT CARIBOU HUNTS
Without a doubt our Mountain Caribou hunt is among the best in B.C.
They can be hunted as Single Species or We can add them onto most of our hunts. In September the Caribou come from miles around to rut in our area. Hunters wishing to primarily target caribou can expect to see 300+ in a normal hunt. Even as an add on to our Moose hunts most hunters see between 30 – 50+ a day. Bulls harvested during the rut average between 320-380 honest B&C points with a couple bulls close to or exceeding 400 mark each year. Most of our bulls have beautiful white manes, with white markings often running all the way back to the hip.
The success rate on our Caribou hunts is usually 100% and even as an add on to a moose hunt most hunters take both animals.
Caribou are hunted by horseback and a few by Backpack for the right client; we typically ride to several vantage points each day until we find a bull that you like. In the meantime we will see lots of these amazing animals which will often come within 30 yards of our horses, making for some great photo opportunities!
Base pricing is per person based on a 2 hunters to 1 guide hunt for 10 days.
See additional pricing for our 1-on-1 guided hunt option!
Don’t be trigger happy early on in a hunt…. you don’t need to!
Hunters can choose to fly to Whitehorse, Yukon and drive to our camp near Boya lake provincial park BC or drive directly from the States.
Upon booking we can supply you with all the details you will need to get with these travel logistics. We put a great deal of time and thought in choosing the camp which you will hunt, depending on what you are hunting and the seasonal distribution of those animals.
We want ALL hunters to do well and have the hunt of a lifetime, so depending on the hunt you may stay in cabins or wall tents, or on some early hunts quality mountain tents may be used as well.
If you have a special need please advise us BEFORE the hunt is booked.
You may hunt directly from the camp you fly into or your guide might choose to “spike out” to another camp that he feels offers better potential for success. For those who finish hunting early we have great fishing and game bird hunting at many of our camps, this is included at no charge with all of hunts. Also each hunter can harvest one wolf at no charge, just ask us to pick up the appropriate licenses for you. For those unfamiliar with the British Columbia hunting system, there is no draw for licenses. All of our hunts come with guaranteed tags for all the animals you wish to hunt.
TAKE NOTE - We do NOT sell “Canned” hunts. These are real mountain hunts with wild animals in huge country.
Success of harvest is the goal, but not Guaranteed.
If you cannot be happy with good food, hardworking guides, solid equipment and some of the most breath-taking scenery there is then this hunt may not be for you. We love what we do and feel we provide some of the best hunts in the industry year after year. However, things happen in remote place. Weather can play a factor, horses have a mind of their own, boats break down occasionally and sometimes its just not meant to be. This is a hunt NOT a kill. This happens everywhere and anywhere. Come with a good attitude and I promise we will do what we can to make it great.

Rules & Guidelines
WHAT WE EXPECT FROM YOU
Ethics and Fair Chase Hunting is of the utmost importance. Illegal activities can jeopardize the future of our operation, the potential confiscation of a harvested animal and ultimately the future of hunting. Your guides are aware and have been informed of the wildlife regulations and are expected to obey the laws. Please do not ask them to knowingly take part in illegal or unethical activities. If an honest mistake is made, proper steps need to be taken to correct the situation however illegal activity will not be tolerated.
HUNT INFO TO HELP YOU PREPARE
Here is some information that will help prepare you for your upcoming trip.
Arrival and Departure will be from Whitehorse Yukon with daily flights from Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton and Europe. Plan on landing in Whitehorse the day before you are expected in camp, this gives you extra time incase of lost luggage or delayed flights. You will need to book a rental car and drive south 5 1/2hrs to our main camp near Boya lake provincial park (more details provided).
Once you have booked your flights please forward a copy to us via email along with your hotel info if necessary.
Once you arrive at our main camp, Dean & Katie will get you setup and help prepare for your hunt, plan on chartering into your hunting camp the following day. Weather is also the main consideration when flying so please be aware of delays or backed up flying.
We try and use our time the best we can but please be patient with all the things we need to do on these change over days.
You will receive your hunting licenses and tags and some custom cape and horn tags- make sure you keep these with you at all times and don’t loose them. (Tags and License will need to be signed before valid. Don’t forget!)
If Harvest fees are required you will need to pay these BEFORE you go out to camp. NO PERSONAL CHECKS ARE ACCEPTED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES (Certified Bank, or Cash only) In the past we have had issue with this and trusting some (what we thought) were solid guys. Sorry for the inconvenience. These fees will be kept in a safe place and returned at the completion of the hunt if that species is not taken.
