Worthless

This group is not worthy of booking a hunt with. The onlt thing that was true about their word was it was a camp hunt. The guide had never bow hunted, he was polite. Bill and Dan were very eager to take money, and not follow up on any thing that they promiced. They brought no ice to camp, nor did they bring our food on the 3rd day. they said it would be an extra trip. There were no elk sign nor sound of elk. When questioned they said we should come back in 3 weeks. Of course more money!! Beautiful country, just a scam. Oh, we called 25 times to check before we traveled 1800 miles for a camp out.

Once they get your money, they don

I was hunting with my dad and two of his friends. I was promised upon booking that the outfitter would set up a privacy screen in our tent since I am a girl. Once we got to camp, I never got that. Also, our tent would not shut all the way and was never fixed although we complained. The "restroom" was a hole dug in the ground with a toilet seat, all under a tarp thrown over a rope. My head brushed this tarp every time I used the restroom. I am used to pretty rough camps, but this was gross. The food was horrible. We had dried hamburgers the first night, some sort of sausage one night, sloppy joes, and finally chili (the best meal). They ran out of water the 4th day. We were promised sodas and got water/kool-aid/coffee. My father is disabled and asked if he would be able to do this hunt. The outfitter assured him he could. My dad and his friend (also disabled) spent the hunt seated in a small meadow watching the leaves fall. I did harvest a very nice bull, but had to work for it, which was fine. The outfitter sent out a health questionnaire before the hunt. My dad mentioned his heart condition and diabetes. Nothing was done to accommodate these. I don't know why they even asked us. The outfitter went down the mountain every day and my dad asked for sugar free syrup, which was promised but never delivered. Out of 8 hunters, 2 harvested animals. All of our dealings with this outfitter have been negative. I would never recommend him.

British Columbia Hunting Information

British Columbia is an excellent hunting destination that offers a wide variety of game species. Vast wilderness areas and pristine coastlines provide world class adventure hunting for those seeking that trip of a lifetime. BC is arguably best known for big coastal black bears, Canada moose, grizzly bear, mountain lion, Dall sheep and Stone sheep. Hunters can book a hunt with an outfitter and avoid the license drawing process common in most U.S. states.
