6-Day Fair Weather Bison Hunt
For most hunters, woodland bison is the pinnacle trophy. These majestic creatures are so large, you will surely be stunned when you see them up close. These are native, free ranging woodland bison in their natural habitat. Fortunately, they are not a pure wood bison – which means you are allowed to export your cape and horns to the United States.
The bull may weight up to 3000 lbs. and a cow 1500 lbs. Studies have shown that many of the bulls in this area are ancient, and trophy potential is very high. There is also the satisfaction of having hunted a rare and awesome trophy – a true free ranging woodland bison. The very elusive timber wolf inhabits the same area as the woodland bison and can be hunted with reasonable success at any time during the hunt.
Most of the hunting will be done on snowmobiles and quads, and it’s common to travel up to 80 km (50 miles) in a day in snow 1-3 feet deep. Your days will be filled with excitement tracking down the legendary woodland bison. The hunt can be long and difficult, but for the avid trophy hunter it is the thrill of a lifetime.
Our fair-weather season includes the month of October and the last two weeks of May.
The 6-day hunt is Monday through Saturday.
Check-in 4:00 pm Sunday and check-out at 12:00 noon the following Sunday.

We’re up early and it will be a long day with lots of travel and sometimes extensive walking if we’re tracking.
We’ll stop to eat a bag lunch, drinks and snacks. You may be travelling through 3 feet of water or 2 feet of mud and winching your way out when stuck.
When we return from the hunt, you can wash up and relax while your home-cooked meal is prepared. It’s a great opportunity to share your hunting stories or talk about the day.

Make it a 1-1 Hunt
Hi! We're your hosts, Kevin and Patti! Long before we became owners, we were adventurers just like you. We started our outfitter in 2000 to share our love of outdoors. We began with waterfowl and have grown our trip offerings to include moose, bison, wolf and coyote. After that growth, a tempting opportunity presented itself. That opportunity was purchasing a lake lodge in the beautiful Northwest Territories. This remote fly-in lodge is the newest jewel in our crown – and it has already brought anglers from all over to enjoy the best fishing anywhere.
