Our guides and camp staff are passionate about what they do and work hard to make your trip the best experience possible. Gratuities are a significant way hunters can express their appreciation for the extra effort, skill and care our staff take on your behalf. Gratuities also help to balance the disparities between the guiding business and many other opportunities that exist for such skilled individuals in a competitive employment market. Although amounts can vary, 15-20% of the value of your hunt is typical in the outfitting industry.
We offer payment terms intended to make these trips affordable to our clients. An initial non-refundable deposit of $1,000 at time of booking secures your trip and holds your dates unless other arrangements are made. For Spring bear hunts this amount should be brought up to 50% by March 1, 2022, and the balance by May 1, 2022.
For Fall 2022 hunts the account should be brought to 50% by May 1, and the balance of the hunt price paid by July 15. Any payments after that date must be certified bank cheque (US funds), or wire transfer (US funds). Licenses, tags, and taxes should be paid in advance with your final payment and no later than one month prior to the date of your hunt to allow us time to obtain your hunting licenses and species tags and have them available for you when you arrive in camp. Your account must be paid in full prior to the beginning of your hunt with us.
Deposits and any subsequent payments toward the hunt price are non-refundable, but can be transferred to the following year with at least 6 weeks notice, or to a different individual with at least 10 days notice. We often recommend trip cancellation insurance. All prices quoted are in US Dollars except for licenses, tags, Wildlife Conservation Fee and GST.
Safety is our top priority for all our guests. For hunters, we expect you to be proficient, safe and practice with your firearm before arriving in camp.
Communication is extremely important, both before your trip and with your guide during your hunt, to ensure you receive a great experience. If there is a problem or concern, let us know as soon as possible and we will do our best to resolve the issue quickly.
Please be flexible to increase the enjoyment of your trip. You are in wild country and plans and weather conditions often change.
We expect all guests to practice ethical and responsible hunting. All must strictly adhere to BC Wildlife Regulations, which are available to you when you arrive. If you have any questions please ask one of our guides.
During hunting trips, our guides do their best to get you as close as possible to your animal and only ethical shots are to be taken. If an animal is wounded every reasonable effort is made to retrieve that animal in accordance with the Wildlife Regulations.
All hunting licenses and tags are guaranteed available and you do not need to apply for any species tags prior to your hunt. If you have booked and paid for your hunt, license and tags, then we will have them for you upon arrival at camp. You must carry your hunting species tags and photo ID on your person at all times while hunting. Non-resident license is $180, moose tag is $250, bear tag is $180, mountain goat tag is $350, and wolf tag is $50. These prices are quoted in Canadian dollars.
