GUIDED HUNT INFORMATION

In Camp Accommodations

Our main base camp in the Skeena region is located off a forest service road and consists of a well established lodge with sleeping rooms. Some guests may be in adjacent cabins with comfortable beds and wood stoves or electric heat. The lodge also serves as the cook house and gathering area to plan your hunt for the next day. At our Skeena lodge there is electricity, landline telephone, running water, hot showers and free unlimited wi-fi. Cell phone reception can be spotty.

For remote wilderness stays the camps are typically cabins with wood stoves or in some instances wall tents. Please bring your own sleeping bag. We use satellite phones, a satellite-based messaging system, and radios for any necessary communications when cell service is not available.

In Camp MEALS

All meals are provided during your time with us. Meals at base camp and remote camps are home cooked. Please let us know in advance of any special dietary needs or allergies that you may have so that we can accommodate you. When your adventure or hunting activity takes you away from base or remote camp all day, we pack a lunch for you.

Traveling to Base Camp

If you are driving from the United States to our Skeena camp, your destination is Houston, B.C., located on the Yellowhead Highway, 16.  Prior to your hunt or vacation adventure we will provide you with detailed directions to camp from Smithers or Houston, B.C.. Plan to arrive in camp in the afternoon of the day prior to your first scheduled hunt day, unless other arrangements are made.  

If you are flying, the closest airport to our Skeena camp is Smithers, BC, which is serviced by Air Canada. It is also quite feasible to fly into Prince George, BC, or Terrace, BC, both  of which are serviced by major airlines (Air Canada and WestJet) and rent a car or truck to drive to Houston.  Both Prince George and Terrace are about 3.5 hour drives from our Skeena camp.

If you wish to fly into Smithers we can arrange for you to be picked up and driven to camp without charge. If you wish to stay in Smithers, Houston, Prince George or Terrace, please contact us and we can recommend a local hotel.

​Coming into Canada you will need a valid passport or enhanced driver’s license and if bringing a rifle, a Canadian Firearm Declaration Form as well as your hunting contract with us. To avoid unnecessary hassle at the border please remember that you must sign your gun permit in front of a Canada Custom’s Officer. Absolutely no handguns are allowed to be brought into Canada on your trip.

Care & Transport of Harvested Game

If you have driven up you can take all your meat back with you. If you have flown it is usually not feasible to take all of your meat home with you, but you can take the best cuts back with you on the plane in a cooler as extra baggage. Any meat left with us will be donated to the Meat Donation Program of the Guide Outfitters Association of British Columbia or to a local food bank.

​It is possible to take some species back with you immediately after your hunt. For U.S. residents your license and species tag act as an export permit for transporting your moose and bear meat and hides out of BC.  Any hides going outside of North America will need to be left with a taxidermist to be tanned. All hides will be properly caped, salted and dried or frozen at base camp.

Some species (e.g., mountain goats) require further permitting before leaving the country. Compulsory Inspections are done by government biologists by arrangement.  

What About Gratuities

Our guides are passionate about what they do and work hard to make your trip the best experience possible. Gratuities are greatly appreciated, with 10% being typical in the industry.

Guest & Hunter Expectations

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.
