  • North Peace Region

  • Northern guides conduct business in British Columbia between the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains, south of Dawson Creek, north to the Yukon border and over the divide into "the Rocky Mountain Trench". Within this vast area, sportsmen are able to pursue the majestic stone sheep in the mountainous terrain north of the Peace River; while Rocky Mountain bighorns are well established among the mountains of the Alberta/BC border. Moose, mule deer, wolf, grizzly and black bear are harvested throughout most of the areas

  • North Central BC

  • This is the heart of British Columbia's moose country. Approximately 4,000 moose are harvested annually here in this outstanding moose habitat. Two-year-old bulls that produce 400 pounds of dressed meat and mature bulls with antler spreads measuring over 55 inches are becoming common. Black bear and grizzly are common in the mountainous areas; as are mountain goat, mountain caribou, stone sheep; and in some instances, bighorn sheep and elk. Mule deer are on the increase in the area and many hunters pursue them in season. The Fraser Plateau is a comparatively flat forested area with numerous lakes, small streams and marshlands, amounting to nearly half of the entire region. To the east, the terrain rises to the highest point in the Canadian Rockies, Mount Robson. To the north, the majestic Omineca Mountain range stands tall.

Dall sheep are found in the northwest corner of the zone, while further east and south, fannin and stone sheep supplant them.

  • Coastal BC and Vancouver Island

  • Vancouver Island's stunning geography is the backdrop for a wide variety of wilderness adventures. The Island's wildlife population may best be summed up as "bears, bears, and more bears". The black bear concentration on the Island is second to none in the world, and guide outfitters regularly assist their hunters in finding Boone and Crockett trophy bears. Some of the guide outfitters also maintain sections of coastal mainland directly across from their primary Island territory, and here large coastal grizzly bear are in abundance. Outfitters here also offer mountain goat opportunities, and hunting the Coastal Mountains within eyesight of the Pacific Ocean is always a thrilling experience.
