Trophies and Meat:
- Field care of meat and trophies is included in the cost of the hunt
- If an animal is taken early enough in the hunt we can have the meat taken to a local butcher for processing (at the client’s expense), as well it can be frozen for shipping
- The guides are responsible for caping and salting of trophies. Also available is Dakota Taxidermy (1-800-669-9217) who can expedite your trophies to the US for mounting, or to your taxidermist of choice.
The entire area of the Elk Valley consists of a network of horse trails that are consistently kept well maintained by staff and personnel. We use horses extensively, and have a large string of well-handled horses. These horses know the mountains, and work well in them. Our camps are mostly backcountry camps with non-motorized access only, and we take advantage of this. We do however, offer hunts to fit all needs and are capable of a number of different accommodations.
Guide territory is located in the South Eastern Corner of British Columbia, in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Alberta borders to the East and Montana to the South. It borders the continental divide, and our base camp can be accessed by vehicle. Most clients choose to arrive in Kalispell, Mt, however it flights into Calgary Alberta and Cranbrook British Columbia are both available.

A deposit of 1/3 the hunt price is required upon booking in order to secure a hunt outside of a year. The second payment is due 6 months prior to the start of the hunt, with the balance due upon arrival. Deposits are non-refundable, but may be transferrable depending upon circumstances.

Camps and Accommodations:
There is one main camp that we use as our base of operations, equipped with lodging and kitchen. We stage out of this camp when first coming and prior to leaving the hunting territory. This camp is accessible by vehicle on a forest service road. From this camp, we then travel to one of three different backcountry camps accessible by horse only. Most camps have readily available water and generator services for small charging of electronics and lights. Horse rides to these camps vary from 1 to 1 ½ hours. All camps are rustic, all camps are considerably comfortable and cozy with warm stoves for drying out gear and keeping you warm at night.
